NCS Technologies, demonstrating partner products from HP, Teradici and others, are at HIMSS21, the can’t-miss health information and technology event, which concludes today. HIMSS is where healthcare professionals connect for education, innovation and collaboration. Healthcare IT is a major emphasis of the show. Please stop by at the Venetian-Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Booth 5446.

NCS is demonstrating zero client VDI solutions for desktops and mobility that are secure, cost effective and easy to use and administer. Maintaining strong security policies remain extremely important in the healthcare industry.


NCS is also a leading supplier of virtual desktop technologies for federal, state and local government, the military, and commercial markets. In the last six years, our desktop and laptop solutions have been recognized for their strong security and effortless portability. NCS devices powered by Teradici software help IT managers maintain security and save money.

The Challenge of Healthcare Security

Healthcare IT managers understand that work PCs used in healthcare settings and remotely in the home are often vulnerable to security breaches. For many administrators, using zero clients is the best solution for security concerns.  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. Security concerns are addressed within the data center. Of the various ways to virtualize at the endpoint, zero clients prove to be a highly effective solution. 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.

To manage virtualized endpoints, NCS recommends the Teradici All Access Plan.
