Organizations can re-purpose PCs and manage thin clients with greater security and flexibility at a fraction of the cost

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–“Virtual desktops are now more compelling for security-conscious industries such as financial services, healthcare, military, and government,” says Emanuel Pirker, CEO of Stratodesk.
“With Stratodesk NoTouch High Security software, security-conscious organizations can manage VDI clients with extra peace of mind, greater flexibility and cost-efficiency.”
Stratodesk is the maker of NoTouch software, which repurposes existing PCs and laptops in just seconds to become “zero-like” virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) clients, at a fraction of the cost of new desktop hardware. NoTouch also provides centralized management for end-user devices in a virtualized environment.
Now Stratodesk has released NoTouch High Security, which enhances security with two new features: strong encryption for local user data on each VDI client and VPN support. NoTouch can now connect to market-leading VPN solutions from Cisco and the popular OpenVPN standard.
VDI clients (typically thin or zero clients, repurposed PCs or laptops) already offer added security because they contain no files or applications. But the client can still contain configuration and connection data such as IP addresses, Wi-Fi certificates, and passwords, all of which are valuable to hackers. NoTouch High Security software safeguards this data through encryption.
In addition, NoTouch software provides a centralized, simplified remote management console for an organization’s entire collection of virtual desktop clients, whether they are re-purposed PCs or thin clients from multiple vendors. This frees an organization from being locked in to particular VDI hardware and software.
Says Pirker: “With Stratodesk NoTouch High Security software, security-conscious organizations can manage VDI clients with extra peace of mind, greater flexibility and cost-efficiency.”
