The Challenge of Healthcare Security and How Zero Client PCoIP Helps

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.

NCS Sells the Teradici All Access Licensing Plan

Teradici's licensing plan enables the lowering of IT costs and reduction of admin time. Existing applications are easily migrated as needed.

All Access allows the IT manager to manage, optimize and future proof any data center and zero client deployment. Datacenter elements and end points are always up to date, managed efficiently and supported by Teradici. Teradici All Access subscribers get exclusive access to cloud access software, PCoIP Management Console Enterprise, firmware upgrades, resources and support.
