No difference between office and home office

Home Office becomes more and more important.
Event though there is abig difference between a connection from outiside or from inside the company..
Although demonstrably most security attacks are from inside, this is not completey understadable. That’s why we favor basically same security level on all locations..

“Zero Trust” architecture

• Same security for office and home office

 

Pintexx Business Devices support this approach optimally as it does not play any role if a device is used in office or home office.

Pintexx “Business Devices”

• Central administratio of all devices in office and home office
• Device functional without change in office and home office

PC in data center

Desktop access can currently by made by a Laptop/PC, a terminal server or via VDI infrastructure. We want to go a different way here.
If servers are already in data center why not also the desktop PC?
Separation of display device and desktop is therefore the first step.
Pintexx PC Rack is a 19″ rack with a newly developed bracket with 2 pico boards each. One rack can conatin up to 28 PC boards..

 

Pintexx “PC Rack” offers the following advantages:

  • No access licenses required
  • Entire device performance per user
  • Optimimized Pico boards of different performance
  • Reusable as Business Device

 

But this are the not the only advantages. Multiple PC’s can be pooled. The related software controls access to PC’s.

Pintexx “PC Pool” has the following advantages:

  • Software controls access to free PC
  • Turn PC on as required
  • Turn PC off after usage
  • High failover safety
  • Highly energy-efficient

 

Based on our experience with “Remote” solution we recognized, that around 50% of desktops are used in parallel.

By using PC Rack and PC Pool the number of required PCs can be reduced to 50%!
