Wyse 7040 Thin Client Desk Environment

Dell unveiled its thin client portfolio of virtual workspace solutions – the Wyse 7040 and Wyse 3030 LT.

The enterprise IT vendor says the Wyse 7040 thin client solution is  secure and meets security compliance requirements for the Federal and related markets.

Dell said the solution is accredited with major Federal compliance and certification credentials including OPAL-compliant storage options, TAA, Energy-Star and EPEAT.

The solution can be configured with Windows Embedded Standard 7p at launch, and will be Windows 10 IoT ready.

It also comes with security features including Trusted Platform Module  and BitLocker. The thin clients can be further protected from advanced persistent threats and malware with Dell Data Protection | Threat Defense.

Similarly, Wyse 3030 LT Thin Client can be configured with either Wyse ThinOS 8.3 or Wyse ThinLinux firmware technologies. It is designed for a 6-8 year lifecycle and consumes less than 12 watts and is Energy Star certified.

The enterprise IT vendor also announced the latest version of its virus-resistant, thin client operating system, ThinOS 8.3, the debut of Wyse ThinLinux, and the latest version of its management software, Wyse Device Manager 5.7.

Earlier this year, Dell integrated the Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack for increased unified communications capability. With this release, ThinOS adds support for Skype for Business in addition to Lync 2010 and Lync 2013.

ThinOS 8.3 supports a set of updated protocol features from Citrix, VMware, Teradici, and RDP, as well as Windows 10 virtual machines.

It also supports Amazon Web Services connections over PCoIP, and is compatible with the latest Wyse management options, including Wyse Device Manager 5.7.

For healthcare customers, it also supports Imprivata’s biometric fingerprint authentication solution, enabling clinicians to quickly and securely access patient data throughout a healthcare facility.

Wyse ThinLinux is new thin client-optimized software based on SUSE Linux.

The Wyse 7040 thin client, Wyse 3030 LT thin client, Wyse ThinOS 8.3, Wyse ThinLinux and Wyse Device Manager 5.7 will be available in the United States and select countries around the world starting in July 2016.
