ClearCube Technology First to Market with Zero Clients Featuring Integrated SIPRNet Smart Card Readers for PCoIP
AUSTIN, Texas, -- ClearCube Technology today announced that it has introduced two new zero client models featuring the latest Smart Card Readers for high security desktop authentication on the Secret Internet Protocol Routed Network (SIPRNet). The new zero clients, the CD9424 and the CD7424, feature fiber network connections and copper network connections, respectively.
ClearCube's new zero client models integrate the latest SIPRNet Smart Card Reader that has become the PKI Office mandated standard. ClearCube's Zero Clients support 5v, 3v, and 1.8v smart cards including the new SIPR hardware token, eliminating the hassle of separate USB readers for specific smart cards. Because the new readers are integrated in ClearCube Desktop Zero Client devices, workspace clutter is reduced and user productivity is enhanced. Additional benefits of the new zero clients include:
-- Ability to securely carry credentials from one location to another
-- Higher posture on DoD SIPRNet
-- Elimination of usernames and passwords
-- Elimination of password resets
Compatible with specific versions of VMware View and the PCoIP protocol, ClearCube's zero clients with SIPRNet smart card readers allow PCoIP pre-session authentication that verifies identity through the PCoIP encrypted protocol. All ClearCube Zero Clients are assembled and tested in the U.S. and are fully TAA-compliant.
"Integrating a single smart card reader capable of reading and authenticating smart cards that have a variety of voltages has been requested by many of our federal customers to simplify their security operations," said Jim Zakzeski, VP of Business Development and Marketing, ClearCube.
