Posted by Katie Callahan on Sep 11, 2020 8:46:14 AM

Desktop Virtualization Right Fit for WFH Needs

NCS Technologies delivers zero client VDI solutions for desktops and mobility that are secure, cost effective and easy to use and administer. Maintaining strong security policies are now even more important as the workforce shifts to Work From Home (WFH) in the era of Covid-19.

NCS is a leading supplier of virtual desktop technologies to the government, military and commercial markets such as healthcare and retail. In the last five years, our desktop and laptop solutions are recognized for their strong security and effortless mobility and portability. As companies more and more implement WFH on a permanent basis, NCS devices powered by Teradici software can help IT managers maintain security and save money.

The Challenge of WFH IT Security

IT managers understand that regular work PCs used in the home are vulnerable to security breaches. It's common that work computers may be used by family members. In addition, a worker may not follow corporate security policies as diligently when working in the home environment.

NCS Zero Clients Meet the Security Test

For many administrators, using zero clients is the best solution.  NCS Zero Clients are managed by VMware Horizon software and use the ultra-secure Teradici PCoIP remote display protocol.

NCS Zero Clients have no local OS. The operating system resides in the data center. Therefore, there is no persistent user data, no patches, updates or antivirus software needed. Of the many ways to virtualize at the endpoint, zero clients are proving to be the most effective solution.

More About PCoIP

PCoIP is a high performance computer display protocol used in endpoint VDI. PCoIP from Teradici uses advanced compression to provide end users with rich content from the cloud or data center. PCoIP securely delivers applications or workspaces to the endpoint by compressing and encrypting pixels. More than 10 million VDI endpoints use PCoIP.  NCS partners with Teradici for desktop virtualization. To manage virtualized endpoints, NCS recommends the Teradici All Access Plan.

Using Zero Client VDI to Securely Work From Home

Posted by Katie Callahan on Mar 23, 2020 11:20:32 AM

NCS VDI Delivers Security & Convenience to Workforce Disrupted by Covid-19

For more than five years, IT managers have come to depend on NCS Technologies to deliver zero client VDI solutions that are extremely secure, cost effective and easy to use and administer. IT challenges such as maintaining strong security policies are now even more important as the nation shifts to Work From Home (WFH), and devices are exposed in the home environment.

NCS is one of the leading suppliers of virtual desktop technologies to the government, military and commercial markets such as healthcare and retail. In normal times, our desktop and laptop solutions are prized for their strong security and effortless mobility and portability. As the nation avoids workplaces to socially distance and more effectively fight the spread of the novel coronavirus, NCS devices powered by Teradici software can help IT managers maintain security and save money.

From an IT manager's perspective, if a company's dispersed workers are using regular PCs from home, will the company be protected from security breaches and can all those devices be effectively managed?

IT Managers Beware! Regular PCs and Thin Clients Used at Home ... Yikes!

IT managers realize that regular work PCs used in the home are highly vulnerable to security breaches. This is because the PCs may be used by family members. In addition, a worker may not follow corporate security policies as diligently for browsing and downloads when working from the home environment. It's human nature.

To get around this, the IT manager may issue thin clients for home use. Thin clients are perceived to be more secure than traditional PCs.

NCS believes that the thin client environment is not for everyone, particularly where security and manageability are high priorities. It is assumed that with the thin client the OS, applications and sensitive data are hosted and centrally managed in the data center. But this is not so. A thin client retains a small capacity hard drive, some local memory and an embedded OS. This implementation still requires some IT administration and is vulnerable to security exploitation.

Why NCS Zero Clients Should Be Part of the Virtualization Mix

For many administrators, a zero client installation may be the better choice.  NCS Zero Clients today are managed by VMware Horizon software and use the ultra-secure Teradici PCoIP remote display protocol.

NCS Zero Clients have no local OS. The operating system resides in the data center. Therefore, there is no persistent user data, no patches, updates or antivirus software needed. Of the many ways to virtualize at the endpoint, zero clients are proving to be the most effective, "no drama" solution.
