Business Continuity

Enabling end users to continue working without interruption with ThinScale remote working solutions

Business Continuity for the End User

Often when the term business continuity is used, it refers to the back end infrastructure, or the data center. Not to be confused with disaster recovery (DR), business continuity aims to keep things running in situ using high availability features rather than defaulting to a secondary infrastructure on a bespoke Disaster Recovery site.

It is beneficial to have this infrastructure available, but what if the end users are not able to connect as they are office-based and can’t physically make it into the office for whatever reason?

Such scenarios often require solutions that allows end users to connect securely from non-corporate devices, and from remote locations.

Business Continuity for the End User

ThinKiosk and Secure Remote Worker

Business continuity in the context of ThinKiosk and Secure Remote Worker keeps costs down while enabling a secure and mobile workforce.

Business continuity brings together the elements of remote and home working, BYOD, security and compliance.

Combining all these elements allows end users to continue working securely, regardless of their location and using their personal or corporate owned Windows device, should they be unable to make it in to the office.

Work on any Windows-based Device

Being software defined thin client solutions, Thinkiosk and Secure Remote Worker are both essentially Windows applications that run on an end user's device, instantly turning it into a secure and centrally managed thin client.

With business continuity in mind, end users can easily access their digital environments through ThinKiosk on their corporate devices, or with Secure Remote Worker on their home PCs. This allows them to connect back to the corporate environments, securely, and under IT policy and control when unable to make it into the office.

Secure Remote Worker locks down the device preventing the user from accessing it, allows them to connect and work from their remote environments, and then, when they have finished working, it restores the native device.

Centralized Endpoint Management

Whether an end user is located in the same building or working remotely from home, ThinScale's Management Console gives IT teams full control over the entire thin client environment.

Using ThinScale's intuitive central management platform, IT teams can easily manage, troubleshoot, and update their entire thin client environment updating software, profiles, and security settings, all from a single console.

With built-in location awareness, Thinscale products are designed to dynamically adapt an end user's permissions based on centrally-defined access policies, as well as the established security level of their local network.

“End users don’t even realize they are working on VDI. It looks like they are working the same way as they would on a PC at home.”

ETZ originally embarked on a project to migrate to the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system and at the same time to implement a Citrix VDI platform.

With ThinKiosk, ETZ can now repurpose and redeploy their existing hardware as ThinKiosk software-defined thin clients, allowing access to their VDI platform as well as local apps. This not only dramatically cuts their costs, but it also allows them to secure the endpoint, manage it centrally, and deliver an enhanced end user experience.
