Dell Unveils its Best Mobile Thin Clients Yet with Enterprise-Class Performance and Security
Dell today announced a new, redesigned mobile thin client portfolio for those who need to be on the move, but also require critical intellectual property (IP) and data to be protected – even against zero-day, advanced persistent threats. Ideal for a range of industries including finance, healthcare, government, manufacturing, and energy and exploration industries, the new thin clients enable organizations to empower their mobile workforce to securely access cloud applications and data remotely, while ensuring the security, manageability and centralized control provided by a virtual desktop environment. The Dell Latitude E7270 and Latitude 3460 mobile thin clients integrate the expert manageability, performance and security of Wyse thin clients, based on 20 years of innovation in VDI, with the enterprise-class heritage of Dell’s award-winning Latitude portfolio to deliver a superior user experience.
Power and Portability
The two new mobile thin clients leverage the thoughtful design and user experience of the Latitude portfolio with a durable, enterprise-class chassis designed to meet the demands of today’s mobile worker. Based on Windows Embedded Standard 7 64-bit for a familiar local Windows experience, the devices power the most demanding use cases from all-day computing to graphics-intensive applications. They are built with a robust feature set including Intel dual core processors with integrated graphics, 8GB RAM[i], 128GB SSD[ii], and an extended battery life to enable full productivity in a variety of settings throughout the day. Both mobile thin clients offer a wide range of connectivity options and ports including USB 3.0, HDMI, gigabit Ethernet, and WLAN and Bluetooth options.
With the Latitude E7270 and Latitude 3460 mobile thin clients, organizations benefit from the broadest portfolio of peripherals for mobile thin clients, including popular Dell docking stations, keyboard and mice options, and monitors for maximum productivity and workplace flexibility.
End-to-End VDI Manageability, Security and Services
The Latitude E7270 and Latitude 3460 mobile thin clients support all VDI protocols, and can connect to all of the major brokers including Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware Horizon based on the organization’s VDI strategy and needs. The mobile thin clients are easy to deploy and manage with flexible configuration and management via Wyse Device Manager to deliver over-the-air configuration and policy management, or via Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. IT managers can easily scale administration from just a few to tens of thousands of mobile thin clients as their business grows.
The mobile thin clients can be protected against advanced persistent threats and malware with Dell Data Protection | Threat Defense, the advanced threat prevention solution that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to proactively prevent malware including ransomware and zero day threats on all Windows thin clients. This advanced new technology does not require daily signature file downloads, uses a fraction of CPU and memory, and is 99 percent effective in preventing even zero-day malware from executing[v], making it ideal for highly regulated industries. Finally, organizations can protect their investment with Dell Services and Support for Wyse Thin Clients, a complete portfolio featuring Deployment Services, Dell’s leading ProSupport service[vi], and Accidental Damage Service[vii] for drops, falls and spills. This end-to-end solution gives Dell Cloud Client-Computing customers support throughout the product lifecycle, and helps them shift focus away from day-to-day operations and maintenance towards innovation by delivering key services that help maximize productivity, minimize disruption, and reduce risk.
