Secure Your Federal Desktop and Application Infrastructure
Jun 28, 2013
Access to VMware Horizon View virtual desktops through zero-client devices offers a high-security solution for mobile government workers. If a zero client is lost, the device has no practical use to a thief or foreign agent except as a paperweight, and total loss is limited to the replacement cost of the device. There are no security consequences.
Horizon View desktops are accessed from zero client devices over a succession of secure gateways, using multifactor authentication and Suite B ciphers. Zero-client access to Horizon View desktops offers a viable, affordable, and highly secure solution to the problem of mobility in an age of increasing risk and continual attack.
