Accops Systems, an India-based global provider of integrated work-from-anywhere solutions, has teamed up with Teradici, the creator of industry-leading PCoIP technology and Emmy Award-winning Cloud Access Software (CAS), to enable professionals working with graphics-intensive applications to have accurate, distortion-free, high-quality remote access to graphics workstations.
The Accops solution empowers remote and mobile professionals, like design engineers, VFX technicians, architects and video editors, among others, to experience office-like performance with secure and seamless access to graphics-intensive applications over any network and any endpoint device.
The Teradici PCoIP protocol provides an industry-leading high-definition, secure and highly responsive computing experience. In a distributed workflow scenario, display pixilation and high latency performance prevent remote workers from carrying out their day-to-day activities quickly and efficiently. In addition, data leakage and network security pose serious challenges, especially when dealing with highly sensitive data or projects.
Other solutions and commonly used display protocols lack the needed efficiency to provide high-quality access to such graphics-intensive applications and workstations. Organizations either need to set up graphic workstations physically at the users’ locations, or ask their workforce to return to the office, giving up the safety and flexibility of working from home.
Teradici CAS and PCoIP technology, in combination with the Accops solution, mitigates these concerns and provides a secure, high-definition and highly responsive computing experience. PCoIP uses advanced display compression and encrypts and transmits only pixels to remote endpoints. From a user’s perspective, there is no difference between working with a local computer equipped with all the required software and an endpoint receiving a streamed pixel representation from a centralized virtual computer.
Accops provides enterprises with options to choose from: secure remote access to physical graphics workstations located in the office or to a virtualized workstation created through VDI and delivered from datacentre or cloud.
To mitigate concerns related to the data privacy issues, the Accops solution comes with built-in device entry control, multi-factor authentication (including facial and biometric authentication) and dynamic contextual access. To protect the IP, Accops solution can control the user endpoint and prevent data copy, device sharing, clipboard, screen recording including adding watermark. With facial and biometric authentication with continuous monitoring, Accops can ensure strict surveillance when confidential IP is being accessed. The solution keeps enterprises in complete control of their data, even though users work from anywhere, using personal or corporate devices.
