NCS Meets Healthcare IT Needs

HIMSS17, the year's largest and most influential Health IT conference, is completed. What did we learn this week?

Data Security - We learned that IT administrators remain very concerned about the security of patient data and of IT computing assets.

Desktop Virtualization - Administrators are continuing to explore ways to make their networks and computers less complex, easy to administer and less costly to own.

High-Performance Computing Platforms - Visitors expressed a desire to make sure their computing assets could adequately serve the needs for virtual reality applications and 3-D modeling. SecureView.png

When if comes to protecting patient data and over-all healthcare IT security, NCS believes VDI has a strong role to play. NCS is one of the industry's leading innovators in the virtualization space, and NCS is well known for its zero client virtual end points. Over the past few years we have educated IT administrators that implementing zero clients helps improve overall IT manageability and delivers strong security and cost effectiveness right to the desktop - where it is needed most.

NCS is a leading supplier of high-performance computing platforms, such as Vortex workstations and converged appliance offers, typically to enterprise and government agencies, such as defense and intelligence, needing CAD rendering, 3-D modeling and improved graphics performance through hardware virtualization. But the power of our high-performance computing platforms are equally cost effective and accessible for healthcare applications!

Zero Clients Are a Key Component in Healthcare Security

NCS offers a complete family of virtualized zero client PCs. The NCS portfolio includes:

* Zero Client Desktops With Dual Display - Cirrus TZ-202L & Cirrus DT 5220
* Zero Client Desktops With Quad Display - Cirrus TZ-204L
* WiFi Zero Client Desktops with Dual Display - Cirrus DT WiFi & Cirrus DT 5230
* Zero Client Laptops - Cirrus LT & Cirrus LT Plus

Zero Clients are managed by VMware Horizon software and use the ultra-secure PCoIP remote display protocol. A zero client has 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 deliver super manageability, low cost of ownership and superior security protection. NCS solutions are also optimized for Amazon Workspaces and Microsoft Azure cloud environments.
