Teradici® Provides High Security Desktop Authentication With Support for SIPRNet Hardware Tokens in PCoIP® Zero Clients for VMware View™
BURNABY, British Columbia --(Business Wire)--
Teradici, the developer of the innovative PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) protocol
that enables a true PC experience for desktop virtualization, today
announced support for SIPRNet hardware token authentication in PCoIP
zero clients for VMware View™, ensuring that U.S. military, federal and
government deployments meet the latest mandated security standards in
user identification and authentication. VMware View and PCoIP zero
clients with SIPRNet hardware token support enable users to securely
carry their credentials across virtual machines.
"As a government aggregator for VMware, Carahsoft applauds Teradici's
ongoing commitment to ensure that the security of virtual desktops
exceeds that of traditional desktop or laptop computers," said Will
Jones, vice president of sales for VMware Government at Carahsoft.
"Teradici's latest updates simplify implementation of security
requirements and provide flexibility to meet federal needs."
PCoIP zero clients virtually eliminate the need for desktop management
because they have no CPU, application OS, device drivers or hard drive,
making them the ideal computing solution for deployments where security
is mission critical. In addition to supporting SIPRNet hardware tokens,
PCoIP zero clients are designed to meet stringent security requirements
and government mandates with the following suite of security features:
• CAC and PIV smart card authentication
• 100BASE-FX fiber connectivity
• IPv6 ready
• AES encryption of PCoIP data
• Encrypted PCoIP pixels are sent over the network - rather than user
• No Windows or Linux Operating system (no security patches, no spyware,
"Teradici continues to add features and enhancements to PCoIP that
enable our mutual government customers to gain the most from their
VMware View VDI environments," said Vittorio Viarengo, vice president,
End-User Computing, VMware. "By adding support for SIPRNet hardware
tokens, Teradici PCoIP zero clients for VMware View offer a high
fidelity, flexible and secure VDI solution, well-suited for government
"Teradici continues to align PCoIP zero client functionality with the
requirements of the most demanding deployments where security is the
number one concern," said Trent Punnett, vice president of marketing,
Teradici. "With support for authentication with SIPRNet hardware tokens,
Teradici offers the definitive high-security hardware VDI client
solution for VMware View. With no local storage, no operating system and
no data actually delivered to the desktop, zero clients with VMware View
are a natural choice in security-critical deployments."
Support for SIPRNet hardware tokens is included with PCoIP zero clients
in Firmware 3.5.1, currently available for download at http://techsupport.teradici.com.
PCoIP zero clients for VMware are available from trusted OEMs in a wide
variety of form-factors. For more information on PCoIP zero clients,

About PCoIP Technology
Teradici's PCoIP protocol is an innovative remote display technology
that allows the user's desktop operating system, applications, and data
to reside in the datacenter, eliminating the need for traditional
desktop workstations, PCs and thin clients, and delivers an
uncompromised user experience to each person, anywhere, over any network
and to any type of device without incurring the security risks
associated with having data reside in remote PCs, laptops, or tablets.
PCoIP technology provides high resolution, full frame rate 3D graphics
and high-definition media, with full USB peripheral interoperability,
locally over a LAN or remotely over a high-latency WAN. It compresses,
encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the datacenter
and transmits it 'pixels only' across a standard IP network to secure,
stateless PCoIP zero clients, thin clients, and mobile devices.
The PCoIP protocol is implemented in several software configurations,
including VMware View, the industry leading desktop virtualization
platform, as well as in silicon for hardware accelerated performance and
enhanced security. A growing ecosystem of over 30 third-party vendors
provide a wide variety of PCoIP products including server plug-in cards,
rack and tower workstations, blade PCs, zero clients, integrated
monitors, and IP phones with PCoIP capability.
Teradici Corporation has developed PCoIP® (PC-over-IP®) technology, a
unique remote display protocol which makes network delivered computing a
viable corporate computing reality. Founded in 2004 and headquartered in
Burnaby, BC, Canada, Teradici for the first time enables an exceptional
end user experience for datacenter-based computing. Through a
combination of unique graphics algorithms, flexible software solutions
and high-performance silicon processing, and workstation/server add-in
cards, the company is changing how personal computers are used, deployed
and managed. More information, including current career openings, visit: www.teradici.com.
