Dell Wyse 3040 Thin Client is basically a cheap, tiny, low power PC

A thin client is basically a computer that doesn’t need a lot of memory, storage, or processing power because it’s designed to let you access software that’s actually running on a server, often due to virtualization technology.So we typically see thin clients in business and enterprise environments. But Dell’s newest model actually looks like a pretty nice little PC in its own right… if you don’t need a lot of RAM or storage.The Dell Wyse 3040 Thin Client is a $329 system with an Intel Atom x5 Cherry Trail processor, support for dual displays, wired and wireless network support, and Dell’s ThinOS or ThinLinux operating system options.The only real catch? The Wyse 3040 has just 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. So if you were going to repurpose it as a full-fledged PC, you might want to either add storage, or find applications that don’t need much additional storage space (like using the system as a media streamer).Or if you actually are looking to use the system as a thin client, Dell says its Wyse ThinLinux operating system is based on SUSE Linux, but it features additional security hardening. And the system uses less than 5 watts of power.The Wyse 3040 includes Gigabit Ethernet, a USB 3.1 port, 3 USB 2,0 ports, a headset jack, and dual DisplayPort jacks with support for up to two 2560 x 1600 monitors with 60 Hz refresh rates.An 802.11ac WiFi card is also available as an option.The system measures 3.8 x 3.8 x 1.1 and weighs just over half a pound.press release

Fusion EMM now combines mobile and fixed device management into a single product

VXL Fusion EMM combines mobile and fixed device management

Leading software developer VXL Software has launched the latest version of its device- management suite, Fusion EMM, which can now manage not only mobile devices but also desktop and laptop PCs, servers and network-connected devices.

VXL Software has released the latest version of its market-leading device-management suite, Fusion EMM. Previously aimed solely at mobile devices, Fusion EMM now incorporates the key functionality of its sister product, Fusion UDM Premium – including the ability to manage PCs, servers and network-connected devices.

According to VXL’s VP of worldwide sales, Frank Noon, this not only makes life easier for customers, it also significantly reduces costs. “The latest Fusion EMM is really two products in one,” says Noon, “mobile-device manager and fixed-device manager. Previously, this required two servers – with two sets of server licensing costs. Building the desktop-management capabilities of Fusion UDM Premium into Fusion EMM halves those costs, because only one server is needed.”

Fusion EMM can manage devices running VXL Linux, Windows 7 and 10 Professional, Windows Embedded 7, 8 and 10 IoT, Windows Mobile, Windows POS, Android, iOS and MacOS – all from a single console.

“Device management and support are vastly simplified,” says Noon. “The reality of today’s computing infrastructure is organisations use multiple devices – both mobile and fixed. Fusion EMM enables IT teams to manage all of them using one tool.”

Fusion EMM boasts a comprehensive feature set, including agentless discovery; application, browser, device, e-mail and content management; inventory, kiosk mode security; monitoring and analytics; organisational unit/group management; comprehensive security management – and much more.

VXL Software’s goal is to provide powerful device management at a very affordable price. “I’d say that our previous product was the best priced on the market,” says Noon, “but the new combination of mobile and fixed device management, without any increase in price – and massively reduced total cost of ownership – makes it unbeatable.”

Fusion EMM is available now.

Organisations wishing to try Fusion EMM can do so free, by downloading an evaluation copy from VXL Software’s website:http://www.vxlsoftware.com/evaluation

VXL Software is exhibiting at Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, between 27 February–2 March, on stand 7M59 in hall 7 – where people can chat about lowering the cost of device management.

XMLRPC or WP-Login: Which do Brute Force Attackers Prefer

XMLRPC compared to wp-login as an attack target in WordPress. Which is more frequently attacked and how to protect your site against brute force attacks.

Source: www.wordfence.com

Regarding US XMLRPC and Amazon —  

One possibility is that 36 servers at Amazon EC2 have been compromised and they have been used to launch a very rapid and wide-spread brute force attack during the past 2 weeks. That attack generated over 144 million failed login attempts across the sites we monitor.

An alternative theory is that a developer may be using EC2 to host an application that is trying to sign into WordPress websites using XMLRPC. The application may not handle bad user credentials correctly and may just keep retrying.

IGEL Introduces Micro Thin Client

USB Thin ClientIdeal for VDI environments, the IGEL UD Pocket features a dual-boot system that turns compatible USB-bootable form factors into an IGEL Linux 10-powered endpoint, without overwriting the local OS

Reading, Dec. 6, 2016IGEL Technology, a world leader in the delivery of powerful endpoint management software, IGEL™ Linux-powered thin clients, zero clients and all-in-one thin client solutions, today announced the introduction of the IGEL UD Pocket, a flexible and cost-effective out-of-the-box micro thin client solution that is designed to improve the security of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives in organizations with remote or mobile workforces.

Built to provide on-demand access to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments, the IGEL UD Pocket offers simple and secure access to the user’s IGEL Linux 10-powered desktop, via a USB-bootable device, without overwriting the local operating system (OS).

“As the industry’s first Linux-based micro thin client, the IGEL UD Pocket is ideal for organisations that want to provide remote and mobile workers with simple, secure and fully-functional anytime, anywhere access to their VDI environments,” said Simon Richards, Managing Director for IGEL South & Western Europe. “And, because the IGEL UD Pocket leverages existing hardware, organisations of all sizes can quickly scale their IGEL desktop deployments, while dramatically reducing desktop replacement costs.”

Protecting Networks and Data While Giving Workers the Freedom to Roam

The IGEL UD Pocket supports enterprise-level security standards and protocols. Additionally, IGEL’s entire family of thin and zero client solutions, including the UD Pocket, support two-factor authentication through integrated or external smart card readers or USB tokens, which prevents passwords from being lost, forgotten or intercepted by cybercriminals.

 With the IGEL UD Pocket, the IGEL Linux 10 desktop can be accessed from any USB-bootable PC, laptop, tablet or thin client that meets the minimum requirements of an x86, 64-bit processor and 2 GB RAM. Available in a USB 3.0 form factor with backward compatibility to USB 2.0, the IGEL UD Pocket measures 22.4mm x 12.2mm x 6mm and weighs 3 grams. The IGEL UD Pocket also features an industry-grade 8GB memory module, and a high-quality metal chassis is resistant to dust, shock and water.

 “We are finding that there is a significant market opportunity for our Linux-based micro thin client in vertical markets such as financial services and insurance, education, logistics and warehousing, and call centers where workers roam between desks, offices or locations,” continued Richards.

 Availability and Licensing

Designed to provide IT organisations with greater autonomy, and the agility and flexibility they need to quickly scale their IGEL deployments, the IGEL UD Pocket can be purchased through IGEL channel partners in Europe. Additionally, licensing for the IGEL UD Pocket is assigned to the USB stick, independent of the MAC address of the target endpoint. This flexibility to roam from one device to another, along with regular IGEL firmware updates, offers IT organizations a revolutionary, yet simple solution to their diverse endpoint management challenges.

 The IGEL UD Pocket can also be integrated, like all the other IGEL OS-powered products, into the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS), a centralized and secure remote management console that provides organizations with complete control over their IGEL endpoints, saving time and resources, and reducing operating expenses. The IGEL UMS can be downloaded free of charge at www.myigel.com.
