Devon IT today announced the ZeTOS™ zero client operating system that
enables fast, efficient deployments of new zero client terminals.
Administrators can tailor session types to the needs of their users
without allowing users the ability to alter designated settings. This
renders a faster deployment with less management required, reducing the
amount of troubleshooting needed.
“Terminals running ZeTOS are capable of performing high demand tasks
with the ability to operate RDP, ICA and View sessions,” explained Ian
Geiser, CTO, Devon IT. “Zero clients offer greater operational
efficiency, are easy to maintain, and data is secure.”
With ZeTOS, zero client terminals run in a stateless condition. Users
are unable to execute software or initiate remote sessions that the
administrators have not authorized. A user enters their username and
password and is immediately up and running in their remote session.
Terminals running ZeTOS do not broadcast or auto-discover network
protocols, eliminating the need for special firewall or routing rules.
Since the terminals have no local persistent memory, there are no
threats from viruses or malicious software.
Configuration is carried out entirely through an external DNS
environment: management software such as the Devon IT Echo becomes
optional, as connectivity is established passively through standard DNS
records. While Echo can still be used by administrators to execute
commands within the terminals being managed, once the DNS environment
has been established the management process is essentially complete. As
with a thin client, terminals running ZeTOS are easily managed centrally
either through this DNS environment or through Echo should the system
administrator so desire.
