Wyse 7040 Thin Client Designed to Meet the Performance Demands of Future-Ready Organizations.
The Dell Wyse 7040 is a highly secure thin client solution that delivers advanced, multimedia-class performance and broad connectivity based on the needs of our most demanding virtual workspace business customers, and the unique security and compliance requirements for the Federal and related markets.
For government agencies where security is paramount, the solution is accredited with major Federal compliance and certification credentials including OPAL-compliant storage options, TAA, Energy-Star and EPEAT.
The Dell Wyse 7040 will be configured with Windows Embedded Standard 7p at launch, and will be Windows 10 IoT ready. It also comes with enhanced security features including Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and BitLocker, and the thin clients can be further protected from advanced persistent threats and malware with Dell Data Protection
Threat Defense, the advanced threat prevention solution which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to proactively prevent malware including ransomware and zero day threats on all Windows thin clients.
Dell has always been a leader in innovation to drive down the cost and complexity of VDI solutions while providing better performance and more manageability that all organizations need today, and as their needs evolve in the future.
The Dell Wyse 3030 LT thin client, designed for a 6-8 year lifecycle, offers organizations a highly secure, yet affordable solution with broad connectivity that can be easily scaled for deployments ranging from a few employees to tens of thousands. It can be configured with either Wyse ThinOS 8.3 or Wyse ThinLinux firmware technologies to deliver leading-edge security and an optimized user experience.
Dell continues to provide organizations with the most virus-resistant, thin client operating system with Wyse ThinOS 8.3. 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.
Steve Lalla, VP, Commercial Client Software and Solutions, Dell said: “Organizations of all sizes require solutions to harness the proliferation of data that is a result of today’s mobile and collaborative workforce – and secure that data while helping employees be more productive.
Steve added: “Dell is rising to that challenge with its broadest introduction of next generation virtual workspace solutions including advanced thin clients, highly-secure, thin client-optimized operating system, modern thin client management, and industry-leading data security solutions that make it easier for our customers to make the most of their IT.”
