Original Press Release:
Take the I-O Corporation Challenge - 'Get Thin in 30 Days'
SALT LAKE CITY, May 14 /- Utah-based I-O Corporation launched a new line of simple, secure thin clients that are small enough to mount on the back of standard LCD monitors. The new I-O Windows® XP Embedded and Windows® CE based Pro|Edge(TM) thin clients are available for a 30-day trial offer as part of the launch. I-O Corporation is simultaneously introducing e-commerce to its site to accommodate IT managers interested in the new product.
"Now's a great time to 'slim down' and try the compact, secure technology of the I-O Pro|Edge(TM) thin client," said Gordon Flitton, I-O's vice president of sales and marketing. "Thin clients have been available since the 90's, but we're seeing another surge of interest in them because they're smaller than when first introduced and they continue to be simple, economical and more secure than PCs."
Pro|Edge(TM) thin clients offer customers the flexibility and power of running applications on Windows terminal servers, Citrix Presentation Servers, browsers, and other host systems. I-O's thin client solution provides users with a look and feel of a PC while utilizing traditional software via a server.
"Our Pro|Edge(TM) thin client is about the size of a three-CD set, offering users the advantage of a small footprint," added Flitton. "Yet it's powerful, with up to one GHz of processing power and a choice of Linux, CE, and XPe operating systems. Still, it uses much less power than a PC, saving organizations money."
Because applications and data are stored at a central location on the server, Pro|Edge(TM) thin clients offer greater security. The read-only nature of embedded operating systems provides security by preventing virus and unwanted application installations. In addition, using I-O's Endpoint Security Software, IT managers can remotely disable access to any USB mass storage devices attached to XPe Pro|Edge(TM) models.
And for simplicity, I-O Corporation has partnered with Altiris, a developer of client management tools. Pro|Edge(TM) was engineered with the Altiris Deployment Solution in mind. AppLabs, a third party testing facility, recently verified the compatibility and functionality of the Pro|Edge(TM) and Altiris solution. Thus, I-O is the first thin client manufacturer to display the "Altiris Verified" logo. For those not using Altiris Deployment Solution, I-O provides its own I-O Configuration Utility.
For 30 years, I-O Corporation has developed innovative display stations designed with IT managers and end-users in mind. I-O product designs include economically priced thin clients, managed security servers, endpoint security software, host print software, print servers, display stations and data stream conversion devices. With over 750,000 enterprise solutions installed in more than 30 countries, I-O Corporation's reputation for product reliability and customer support is recognized world-wide.
