Simplify and Save with PCoIP Zero Clients:
Down Size the End Point

Replace complex desktops, laptops, tablets and phones with an amazingly simple PCoIP-powered zero client.


PCoIP Zero Clients

Many of the top equipment manufacturers have embedded PCoIP processors into their end-point, zero client hardware. With the single purpose of image decompression and decoding, the PCoIP processor eliminates endpoint hard drives, graphic processors, operating systems, applications and security software. With no operating systems, no codecs and no software to maintain, zero clients represent the easiest to manage endpoints ever invented. 

Run for Less

PCoIP Zero Clients provide the highest quality user experience. And, compared with the price of a loaded desktop or laptop, they are far less expensive. Simple, small footprint zero clients will also last years longer than any OS-driven device because there is nothing to upgrade.

PCoIP Zero Clients even reduce operating costs, including power, cooling and space consumption. Some use power over Ethernet for plug and play convenience and infrastructure cost savings.

Simplify Device Setup and Maintenance

Most manufacturers’ zero client units are plug-and-play -- ready for use in under five minutes with network access and VMware Horizon View, VMware Horizon DaaS, Amazon WorkSpaces, or PCoIP Remote Workstations.

PCoIP Zero Clients do not require applications, patches, service updates, operating systems or antivirus software.

Protect Data and Applications

All application data remains locked down in the data center. PCoIP Zero Clients simply receive and decode encrypted image information, and are immune to viral attack. No sensitive application data ever reaches the endpoint, zero clients do not store any application data. The encryption module uses AES 256 and NSA Suite B cyphers.

Pair PCoIP Zero Clients with USB security authorization, a smart card or proximity card system or other single sign-on devices to comply with the highest security requirements including 802.1x network authentication.
