Sustainability is an increasingly important priority for companies around the world. For IT, that can take on many forms, including better managing the usefulness of a device throughout its entire lifecycle. The pandemic and global supply chain pressures have only made this more important.

That’s why we’re getting the word out that you can extend the life of your PCoIP Zero Client deployment significantly with one firmware upgrade and achieve full compatibility with VMware Horizon 8.

The result? Companies can save money and support their sustainability, security and hybrid goals, while maintaining optimal productivity and flexibility for their employees.

PCoIP Zero Clients Have a Lot of Life Left in Them

Trusted by some of the largest corporations and government agencies in the world, PCoIP Zero Clients are the most secure endpoints in the world that enable users to access their high performance, secure virtual desktops. With PCoIP technology, only display information in the form of encrypted pixels is transferred to the zero clients, so no data or business information ever leaves the security of the corporate network. Moreover, PCoIP protocol supports Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit, adding an extra layer of security in connections.

Offered in a variety of form factors, including all-in-ones, zero clients are low-cost, easy to manage, have low power consumption, and support VMware Horizon remote desktop deployments. 

In fact, with zero clients, you probably have years left on these devices and you may be just one firmware upgrade away from full compatibility with VMware Horizon 8.

We continue to enhance zero client firmware and the PCoIP Management Console used to manage zero client deployments with new features and security enhancements with our quarterly releases. And we continue to expand our support for smartcards and certificates.

Single Sign-on (SSO) with Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) support was recently added to the PCoIP Management Console so customers can integrate their Active Directory with their Identity Providers (IDP) using SAML 2.0, enabling IT Administrators and helpdesk staff to securely login to their Management Console without having to remember a separate password.

PCoIP Zero Clients are Certified with VMware Horizon 8 

The latest firmware of PCoIP Zero Clients (2202.01) is certified with VMware Horizon 8.4.0 and we work towards certifying every new zero client firmware release against the latest Horizon releases.

Combined with PCoIP Management Console, this remote desktop solution continues to keep your data secure, your endpoints easy to manage and upgrade, and your IT spend low. 

So, if you have been on the fence about taking Horizon's latest leap forward, there’s no need to wait. Your path to upgrade might be simpler than you think.* The Teradici Desktop Access subscription includes the latest updates and security patches for your zero clients for any PCoIP connection, PCoIP Management Console to manage your zero clients, and support from our expert team.

Contact us today to get the latest updates for your PCoIP Zero Clients or register for a year of free firmware and security updates if you recently purchased your zero clients.

*To check if your zero client is certified for VMware Horizon, visit VMware’s compatibility guide or contact your manufacturer. Teradici “pre-certifies” the firmware and the manufacturer must complete the certification.
