Posted by Katie Callahan on May 3, 2017 10:29:37 AM

DOT Cybersecurity Summit 2017

Wednesday is Day Two at the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Cybersecurity Summit 2017, DOT Headquarters, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, D.C. NCS Technologies is an important supplier of security solutions to the military, intelligence and other civilian government agencies. Please stop by the NCS booth and talk to Lauren Mayoral, an expert of civilian agency IT issues. All government agency employees and contractors are invited to participate at this important event.

undefined-007205-edited.jpgThere are many critical components to IT security, starting with the filtering done by the service provider and extending to the robust security infrastructure provided at the data center. Continuing this philosophy of "security through layers of defense", the next security peremeter after the data center is the desk top or end user. Today at the show NCS is promoting the Cirrus family of virtual zero client end point devices which focus on strong security at the desk top or end user level.

Zero client virtual desktops and laptops are recognized at the best security at the end user level. Instead of continually implementing patches and updates, users of zero clients have security peace of mind because they benefit from AES-256 encryption and because there is no hard drive or local storage to attack, no OS to infect, no persistent user data to steal and no antivirus software needed.

NCS zero client end points lead the industry in innovation, ease of use and low cost of ownership. NCS solutions rely on the PCoIP protocol, which compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the data center. Information is transmitted as pixels across the IP network to the end points. Users have a high performance, fully-functional computing experience - even with HD. VMware is our virtualization platform of choice. This platform improves the availability, performance and utilization of IT resources. NCS zero clients are also optimized for Amazon Workspaces and Microsoft Azure cloud environments. 
Industry's Largest Portfolio of Zero Client Solutions

NCS offers a complete family of virtualized zero client PCs to the government and is demonstrating them at the DOT Cybersecurity Summit. 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

We encourage you to visit the NCS table today and talk to Lauren about the industry-leading zero clients portfolio.
