Windows 10 support is ending: Is your company ready for the transition?
The end of support for Windows 10 is a major challenge. Discover why switching to ThinClients could be the ideal solution for your company.
What does the end of Windows 10 support mean for your company?
Microsoft has announced the end of support for Windows 10. In particular, support for version 21H2 was already discontinued in June of this year, as you can read here. This means that there will be no more security updates and no technical support for this operating system.
For your company, this could pose a significant security risk. Without regular updates, potential security vulnerabilities could emerge that could be exploited by cybercriminals.
Given the significant costs associated with purchasing new PCs and Windows 11 licenses, we suggest an alternative solution. Use your existing PCs as ThinClients. This option is not only more cost-effective, but also safer.
Are your devices ready for the transition to Windows 11?
Switching from Windows 10 to Windows 11 could be challenging for some of your devices. Windows 11 has higher system requirements, meaning not all PCs or laptops will be capable of performing the update. This will entail additional costs and training effort for your business.
Did you know you can continue using your existing PC hardware by deploying these as ThinClients?
Instead of investing in new devices, you can use your existing PCs as ThinClients in conjunction with a remote desktop application (e.g. RDP, Citrix, VMware Horizon). This allows you to extend the lifespan of your current hardware, while facilitating the transition to a more efficient and secure IT infrastructure.
Using old PCs as ThinClients not only saves costs but is also environmentally friendly. It reduces electronic waste and helps you minimize your ecological footprint.
Have you already considered the benefits of ThinClients for your business?
ThinClients have established themselves as compact, cost-efficient mini-computers that access the resources of a central server to run applications. Unlike conventional desktop computers, they require less local computing power, which leads to a number of advantages.
A key plus point is enhanced data security. As ThinClients do not store data locally, the risks of data theft or loss are drastically reduced. All data is securely stored on the central server, allowing for better control, processing, and data backup.
In addition, managing with a solution like openthinclient allows for central and structured administration of clients and applications. This significantly reduces administrative effort while simultaneously increasing security.
Compared to conventional desktop computers, ThinClients provide a faster and more cost-effective integration into a centralized IT infrastructure. Thanks to their simple and quick setup and configuration, which often takes just a few minutes, they can save a significant amount of time and resources.
