Wyse ThinOS9: Delivering a Better Virtual Computing Experience

As organizations continue to focus on creating a seamless solution to manage their endpoint devices, they are looking for solutions that deploy remote desktops and other applications across rapidly changing cloud-based environments.

In the 20 years since the rollout of the original ThinOS, we’ve continued to innovate and incorporate solutions that will prepare customers for a new generation of advanced workplace transformation. That is why I am proud to announce the newest iteration of Dell Technologies’ most secure operating system on the market[1] – ThinOS 9.

As the industry-leading firmware that powers Dell Technologies’ portfolio of thin client devices around the globe, ThinOS 9 will combine unmatched advantages in end-point security with easy deployment, optimized image size and a seamless central management suite. Customers will no longer have to pick between best-in-class security management or the most current core client software. With the investment of a new OS, we also continue our commitment to innovation and supporting customers’ rapid adoption of partner technologies, with a new management suite to support a seamless end-to-end solution for Dell engineered hardware.With this update, ThinOS 9 will focus on the Citrix Workspaces, including advanced features such as browser content redirection and enlightened data transport. These advancements will bring streamlined efficiency to the workforce on our Wyse 3040 and 5070 thin client devices, as well as our recently released ThinOS 5470 mobile laptop and 24” All-in-One products.

Dell Technologies remains committed to providing the ultimate in security, intelligent management and optimized user experience without limiting your virtualization platform choices.

To our loyal customers who always keep us innovating, thank you.
