Delivering Thin Client Computing in Government and Public Sector

Cost Savings and Efficiencies

ThinScale’s products help government and public sector departments with constrained budgets save money in a number of ways.

  • With ThinKiosk existing Windows devices can be repurposed into software-defined thin clients, extending the lifespan of existing devices and increasing hardware ROI.
  • Secure Remote Worker enables BYOD policies to be introduced for end users who can securely use their own devices. This can reduce or even eliminate hardware acquisition and maintenance spend.
  • IntelliPerform enables IT teams to strategically manage and optimize resources. By doing so, they can achieve enhanced user density and reduced per seat overhead. For IT budgets this means reducing the need for additional investment in infrastructure.
  • With both ThinKiosk and Secure Remote Worker, the IT team reduces the amount of time it spends doing routine administrative tasks such as patching or re-imaging devices.
  • An improved end user experience from both a user interface perspective and an efficiency perspective means fewer helpdesk calls and less strain on support resources.

Flexible and User Friendly

ThinKiosk and Secure Remote Worker are software-only solutions that convert existing Windows hardware into Windows-based thin clients. ThinKiosk is a custom solution for corporate devices and Secure Remote Worker has been specially designed for personally owned devices. These solutions turn devices into centrally managed Windows-based thin clients, delivering end users a familiar look and feel, but more importantly a secure workspace interface from where access to systems and data can be safeguarded and managed.

Being Windows based, the Workspace UI is familiar to end users and can even be customized to include a department or organization’s branding and settings, enhancing and personalizing the end user experience further.

For IT departments, an intuitive central management platform means teams can easily manage, troubleshoot, and update their entire thin client environment: they can update software, profiles, and security settings all from a single console.

With IntelliPerform, end users will not be distracted by seeing the software running, but they will notice applications performing much faster. The IT team will be able to identify, manage and monitor with ease which applications or end users are placing a strain on resources.

Security and Compliance

ThinKiosk and Secure Remote Worker have some key functionality in enabling personal and corporate devices to become PCI, HIPAA or GDPR compliant, including:

  • Windows Patch Management
  • Windows Firewall Control
  • Windows Security Center Detection
  • USB Device Blocking
  • Application Execution Prevention (AEP)
  • Service Execution Prevention (SEP)
  • Restricted access to key operating system components

The Benefits to Government and Public Sector Bodies

ThinScale products have been designed to deliver features and benefits not only to the end users, but also to IT admins and the broader organization.

Lower costs

Government and public sector entities can utilize the hardware that they already own, so with a ThinKiosk solution the cost is purely for the software license. These can be deployed, retracted and redistributed quickly and simply.

Secure remote working

Secure Remote Worker allows end users to access their virtual desktop and remote application resources from any windows machine, personal or otherwise, enabling BYOD initiatives.

Familiar end user experience

The key to any successful solution is giving agents something they are used to already using. ThinKiosk provides a seamless transition to remote solutions, coupled with a familiar user interface.

Enhanced end user experience

Windows-based thin clients allow government and public sector bodies to take advantage of features and benefits end users are accustomed to using, and IT admins are able to easily support.

Policy & profile driven

IT administrators can configure profiles defining how a ThinKiosk thin client behaves. The profiles can be used to define settings from appearance settings, through to security settings.

Centralized management

The secure workspace environment is managed centrally using the ThinScale Management Platform, allowing organizations to ensure that the environment is secure and up to date.

Our products provide clinicians and healthcare professionals with a secure workspace environment from where they can access their remote desktop and application environments.

GOVERNMENT CASE STUDY

Gemeente (City Council) of Steenwijkerland, Holland

Gemeente of Steenwijkerland has around 450 users and client devices across three sites. As part of their deployment of Citrix Workspace and VDI they are consolidating sites and relocating users to the other existing site locations.

ThinKiosk helped them easily accomplish this migration without having to spend time reconfiguring and rebuilding devices with the additional benefit of delivering a better end user experience.
