Secure and flexible Thin Client Devices
Securing a new wave of desktop devices
Securing Thin Clients and the infrastructure they connect to is becoming a challenge for all companies wanting to embrace a world of virtual machines and cloud services.
Today most Thin Client infrastructures rely heavily on correct user behaviour and basic security in the data centre. This can cause unacceptable risk, allowing unauthorised devices in, and unencrypted data out.
tVolution gives organizations a way to securely provide and manage access into a VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) environment without committing to new hardware. tVolution allows both existing desktop machines and Thin Client devices to access a VDI estate without the need to maintain and support the existing costly desktop software suite.
The tVolution Product
Data Leakage & Security
Today most Thin Client software provides very little security on the end points, instead relying on the servers to detect, prevent, and monitor devices and data that comes into, and leaves the organisation. tVolution allows you to stop unauthorised devices from accessing your network in the first place, and provides controls on the perimeter to ensure that unencrypted data isn’t removed, without impacting your daily working practices.
tVolution may be configured to include only pre-specified applications, and to restrict the user to approved locations and software. Once the configuration of the OS has been decided, a single install file is created allowing the organisation to quickly and securely build devices that are unique to its security needs.
Extended Hardware Life
As organisations infest in the infrastructure to support virtualisation, realising the full cost savings on the clients can be very difficult. tVolution is a complete lightweight OS replacement, allowing you to extend the life of your legacy PC’s as re-configured, fast, secure Thin Clients without the need to invest in any new hardware.
tVolution allows organisations choice when it comes to their desktop infrastructure. Providing the best user experience with Citrix, Microsoft, VMware, or Quest clients.
Features & Benefits
|Security Built-in||No additional security software is needed which can be costly and often slows down the performance of the client devices|
|Complete OS||tVolution is a complete OS designed for secure VDI access, removing the need for additional OS licenses on the desktops|
|Installation to Legacy Desktops||Extend the life of existing hardware, and reduce the capital expense of moving to a VDI infrastructure|
|Out of the Box integration with Web Browsers, VMware, Citrix, Microsoft and Quest||Familiar look and feel boosts user acceptance, reduces training, and improves and start up time.|
|Fully Configurable and Extendable||Highly configurable to meet the business requirements of each individual organisation. Allows you to tailor both the applications and user experience|
|Central Management and Device Deployment||Low operational overheads and fast deployment allow both the conversion of new Thin Clients and existing legacy PC’s into a centrally managed VDI infrastructure|
|Optional Encryption||Prevent data leakage or device tampering by securing all data that resides on the end point with optional full disk encryption|
|Single OS image||tVolution allows organisations to image both new Thin Client hardware and existing desktops with a single image. Reducing the overhead of OS deployment and support.|
|VPN Components||Increase the cost savings of Thin Clients to remote workers by integrating industry standard VPN clients for various manufactures|
How it works
tVolution is a complete OS replacement for various hardware, from existing desktops to new Thin Client devices. tVolution runs a small secure OS, and allows organisations to tailor the applications, security, and user experience using a simple configuration utility. This customisation allows administrators to lock down the device, and provide the level of security needed in their organisation without having to purchase additional software or compromise on the end user experience. Once tVolution has loaded, the user will be presented with a familiar working environment, this could be a standard web browser for Intranet access, or a full Windows desktop through your VDI infrastructure.
tVolution integrates into Becrypt Enterprise Manager, allowing administrators to view the estate of devices and check the status of each machine. Built-in and user customisable reports, allow an organisation to monitor and report on what is important without burdening the administration team.
Remote patching and configuration updates can be applied without visiting the machines, allowing software updates and configuration changes to be remotely administered.
