Computing Security in an Unsecure World
With the hope that 2021 will take us into safer surroundings, we've already come to realize that it is not going to happen as soon as we would like it to. However, we also realize that computing environments should not add to your worry, in or out of office.
Do Your Endpoints Have The Following - in Office to at Home?
There are choices of endpoints for VDI and Cloud, but we will focus on what 10ZiG knows best - Thin & Zero Client hardware and software.
As an IT Admin or even End User, when it comes to security, you may want to be sure you can check off the items on this list with respect to the safety and protection of your computing environment, no matter where you are located
Just the very nature of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) - in and out of Cloud - creates a safer, more protected computing environment for you and your organization. Everything is virtually managed at a single point of centralization, instead of several different computer workstations requiring individual management at numerous points. Security features when it comes to endpoint hardware also play a hand in terms of a safe computing environment.
Virus Control > Centralized management software with VDI automatically gives your computing environment the safest route when it comes to virus protection. Downloading can be restricted and when problems occur, they can easily be rectified by managing endpoints from one central location, offering superior remote control.
Data Protection > Virtual desktops are hosted on a central server, so data storage is completely centralized. Data is more secure and more protected because it is located in one location. This cuts down on the chances of downloading documents with sensitive materials by the wrong staff members or then being shared with outsiders.
Disaster Recovery > If the right procedures are put into place, backing up data without the risk of losing any files can also be beneficial. End users are less likely to be a victim of data theft from lost or stolen devices, as virtualization centralizes data on premises (or in the cloud) rather than on the endpoint devices.
TPM > Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a computer chip (microcontroller) that can securely store passwords, certificates, encryption keys, etc. to authenticate an endpoint platform. It's customary for Thin & Zero Client endpoints to offer TPM as an option and should be able to be added into the chasis of the hardware.
Smart Card Reader > Many industries and organizations require smart card authentication, particularly in high-security environments. Thin & Zero Client hardware offer a Smart Card Reader option for those requiring this added level of protection. The ability to read the card containing personal ID, authentication info, etc, is essential.Kensington Lock > Support for a Kensington lock provided by way of a small hole, should be an option with your endpoints. This special lock is made for securing electronic equipment like VDI endpoints. The lock is not typically included, but support for it should be optional as again, some industries require this added level of security.
