By apacciooutlook | Monday, December 03, 2018
ROUND ROCK, TX: A recent IDC report announces Dell as the leader of delivering zero clients and ThinOS solutions to enterprises in 2015. The latest report reinstates that enterprises are prioritizing on installing secure thin client solutions and the commitment of Dell in enhancing the security features across its Wyse thin client portfolio.
According to a research conducted by Freeform Dynamics, taking into consideration 220 business leaders from around the globe, 69 percent of business leaders believe that the improved security associated with thin and zero clients is a significant benefit to their organization. 70 percent say that thin and zero client solutions have a natural role to play in a modern corporate environment. 77percent of respondents said that security was a major driver of hardware-based thin client adoption.
Also according to a Dell Data Security Survey, three quarters of business and IT leaders believed that data security concerns were a priority for their C-suite. 58 percent of leaders showed concern about the adverse impact that the lack of security professionals will have on their secure infrastructure, while 67 percent believe their current security measures are placing a burden on their IT department.
Sony Bank has deployed an end-to-end Dell VDI solution with Wyse 5030 zero clients to replace its fleet of PCs, in the bank.
“Security is becoming the biggest concern for businesses wanting to implement new technology solutions, and research shows that 95 percent of the risk begins at the endpoint.” says Jeff McNaught, executive director and chief strategy officer, Cloud Client-Computing, Dell. “The recent spate of data breaches have highlighted the true necessity of a secure infrastructure, and more customers are viewing Wyse zero client and ThinOS solutions as the manageable way to make their employees more secure. While other thin client designs require regular application of security updates, and recommended use of anti-virus software to address advanced persistent threats and memory-based malware, Dell zero clients and ThinOS-based thin clients eliminate the need for such attention by the IT staff.”
