REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/15/12 --
NComputing, the leader in end-to-end desktop virtualization solutions, today announced it has joined the Imprivata Developers Program and also integrated its enterprise N-Series Thin Clients with Imprivata OneSign® No Click Access to deliver native, strong authentication and single sign-on for Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp.
With the integration, healthcare providers can now leverage "tap-in, tap-out" functionality using the NComputing N-series thin clients, roam securely between desktop locations, and access key applications and data in seconds using an ID badge rather than clicks and keyboards. The integrated solution will be demonstrated at Citrix Synergy Barcelona 2012, running Oct. 17-19, in the NComputing stand #202 and in the Imprivata stand #410.
Citrix server-based virtual infrastructures and Imprivata OneSign No Click Access are a strong fit in the healthcare market given stringent needs for security and compliance. A recent survey by Imprivata shows that more than 70% of respondents identified virtualized desktops as a core component of their IT strategy. Healthcare professionals must be able to access their personal desktops, applications, and data from multiple locations as they roam between different stations. Imprivata, NComputing, and Citrix offer a seamless and integrated solution for healthcare organizations that leverages the power and flexibility of the Citrix virtual infrastructure, delivering dramatically higher productivity and better levels of patient care at the lowest possible cost per station.
As a member of the Imprivata Developer Program (IDP), NComputing is using the OneSign ProveID Web API to integrate strong authentication and single sign-on natively into the firmware of the N-series device. Combined with the certificate management within NComputing's vSpace Management Center, the integration optimizes a user's workflow by enabling No Click Access with the tap of a badge, eliminating login screens and providing quick access to the user's virtual desktop from any location.
The NComputing N-series is the industry's first HDX Ready SoC thin client enterprise offering. Built specifically and solely to support Citrix environments, the HDX Ready N-series delivers the performance required to take advantage of Citrix HDX deployments while setting a new price/performance standard. Made available during Q2 2012 and already deployed in customer environments as varied as healthcare, public sector, manufacturing, higher education, and other industries, the N-series challenges the perception of what a thin client can deliver.
"N-series thin clients from NComputing are the first HDX System-on-Chip devices for the Citrix environment that deliver the performance and affordability long expected by the market," said Raj Dhingra, CEO of NComputing. "By offering 100% of the HDX experience needed by healthcare organizations at one-third the cost of existing offerings, and combining the powerful authentication technology from Imprivata, customers can now deploy secure virtual desktop computing in healthcare without compromising productivity or their budgets."
"Nowhere is the demand for No Click Access to roaming desktops greater than within healthcare organizations, where uniquely mobile workforces require fast and secure access to patient information at endpoint devices in any location," said Ed Gaudet, Chief Marketing Officer of Imprivata. "The integration of Imprivata OneSign with NComputing thin clients for XenDesktop and XenApp delivers a powerful boost to productivity across the provider organization."
