Why Consider the High-Performing Experience of Windows 10 IoT Enterprise on a Thin Client?

With the Internet of Things in constant growth, a variety of industries including retail, finance, healthcare, and government, have already begun reaping the benefits of the power of Windows 10 IoT on Thin Client devices. Made for top-performing connectivity, security, and manageability, Windows 10 IoT is a full version of Windows 10 designed with smart devices in mind, and a perfect fit for certain user endpoints like Thin Clients, that really delivers.

Windows 10 IoT Enterprise is very enterprising, indeed!

What does Windows 10 IoT Enterprise offer via a Thin Client?

Simple * Ease-of-Use * Improved Management

Windows 10 IoT Enterprise offers exceptional features and functions that will change your VDI experience for the better or perhaps, for the best. With the help of “Shell Launcher,” you can provide a user interface similar to that normally associated with zero/thin clients, configured into kiosk mode. This easy-to-use common interface allows users the simplicity of logging into their VDI desktops, without the hassle of managing a local operating system and causing confusion. A deployment, management, and servicing system that spans all devices provides a common and consistent user experience.

Security * Speed * Connectivity

Strength of security is at its strongest via Windows 10IoT against threats and unauthorized access with “Unified Write Filter (UWF),” which protects standard writable storage media by intercepting unwanted write attempts. Once UWF-enabled, “Hibernate Once/Resume Many (HORM)” allows you to restart your system from a preconfigured state, resulting in lightening-fast boot speeds. Lockdown features, like the “Keyboard Filter,” actually prevents end users from striking certain key punches or combination thereof. Connectivity with other devices is extremely fluent, allowing workability with other hardware such as barcode scanners and cash drawers, for example.

What do I look for in a Client with Windows 10 IoT Enterprise support?

Thin Client selection should support Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, as well as Classic Windows (e.g. Win32 and .NET) apps. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise runs on 32-bit and 64-bit x86 chipsets. Other hardware and software support options that are device-specific should also be considered, like graphic/video support, number of USB ports and screens, etc. Of course, Thin Clients for VDI should always come with a free, full warranty, as well as free management utility, and top customer service with top technical support. 10ZiG offers a variety of Thin Clients that meet the requirements of Windows 10IoT Enterprise support, complete with all of the above mentioned, and more.
