Mobile Thin Clients – How existing laptops can be effectively utilized as thin client devices?

Organizations today looking at secure and efficient access to VDI environments both from on-prem as well as from mobile clients may be looking at a mixture of solutions and hardware devices that can solve the needs of VDI connectivity across the board. This can lead to a mix of solutions and management challenges. Lifecycle management of end user workstations is certainly one of the challenges faced by organizations with the tremendous capital outlay required to rotate out end user workstations. Workstations are replaced for a number of reasons including end of support contracts or a performance profile that is no longer adequate to power current end user applications. Businesses today… Read More »

Are thin clients affected by Spectre and Meltdown?

Side-channel attacks The two vulnerabilities exploit the possibility of a side-channel attack of the processor. A side-channel attack is any attack based on information acquired from the physical implementation of an information system. Timing information, energy consumption, electromagnetic losses or even sound can be exploited to break the system. By using statistical analysis of these physical operations, it is possible to obtain data from protected memory (for example passwords and cryptographic keys).  It is not a simple attack to perform, and cannot be enabled remotely because the malicious code must be executed locally on the machine. It is still unclear whether it is really possible to corrupt or modify data.… Read More »

Are VDI environments vulnerable to Meltdown and Spectre?

Are VDI Environments Affected by Meltdown and Spectre? VDI environments can be affected when taking into consideration the hardware platform used to connect to the backend VDI environment, the hypervisor, as well as the guest operating system presented via the hypervisor. As an example, many VDI environments are running Microsoft Windows virtual machines for which Microsoft has released patches to change how user and kernel mode code is allowed to interact. However, there are facets of VDI architecture that help mitigate the effects of Meltdown and Spectre attack surfaces. Let’s take a look at what those are. VDI Environments Help Mitigate Meltdown and Spectre Attack Surfaces When it comes to… Read More »

IT Automation: The benefits of centralised management of your company workstations

In a sense, having an easy-to-manage infrastructure has always been the true target of the IT departments in all companies, although management simplicity does not have to translate into a bottleneck of performances perceived by end users and reflecting on overall productivity. The main requirement in this digital transformation scenario is to provide solutions that optimise the corporate information environment and reduce the TCO, the total cost of ownership, while at the same time being able to grant and improve overall IT infrastructure performance.

Managing Windows access to VDI with Praim Agile

An often-overlooked aspect of migrating to a remote desktop computing infrastructure is the existing desktops. Some installations plan and develop a hardened Windows build with restricted capabilities and the bare minimum of functionality. Other implementations look to repurposing software, like Praim’s ThinOX4PC to convert PCs into thin clients, either as an interim solution prior to migration to dedicated thin client hardware devices or as part of a strategy relating to asset longevity. Unfortunately, there are as many implementations where this final step is not considered at all and involves little more than an icon created on the PCs desktop. Praim have recently released Agile 2.0 to help with connections from… Read More »
