These thin clients would then connect to the centralized virtual desktop servers, each employee’s will have their own virtual desktop running inside of the server, only images would be send to the thin client and present to the user. By doing so, manageability and security could be enhanced, as there would be only one server to maintain and secure.

On the other hand, the management console of aDesk solution limit the USB port of these thin clients to only have mouse and keyboard input feature, which solve the data leakage issue via USB storage.

Virtual desktop can be configured with 2 or 3 copies of redundancy as well, which helps in data loss protection.

Hence, by the implementing the combinations, it gained BOCOM the ability to have full visibility and control even from the PC user aspect. At the same time, could ease the management work of every PC in the environment.
