Serve Citizens More Effectively

Secure important local, state or national information. Maintain the highest grade of security, minimize complexity, reduce costs and provide a seamless end-user experience — regardless of device or location.


Facilitate Responsive Government

With PCoIP technology, government organizations can more easily respond faster to the needs of lawmakers, agencies, constituents and citizens while reducing IT infrastructure and operating costs.

One government agency closes and another opens? No problem. With virtual desktops and central management, you can rapidly provision and decommission new desktops.

Strengthen Security

Central computing means that information never leaves the data center – adding a significant layer of protection against eavesdropping or malfeasance. PCoIP technology encrypts and transmits “pixels only” across a standard IP network to PCoIP-enabled clients that decode and display those pixels. The encryption module uses AES 256 and NSA Suite B cyphers.

Pair PCoIP Zero Clients with USB security authorization, a smart card or proximity card system, or other single sign-on devices to meet the highest security requirements.

Reduce IT Complexity and Costs

Reducing the cost and complexity of computing systems, while maintaining high security is a serious issue for government IT managers. Virtualized desktops together with low cost PCoIP Zero Clients offer the lowest cost and easiest to manage IT systems.

PCoIP Zero Clients significantly extend endpoint life span because they do not run operating systems – radically reducing hardware costs over time. They also draw far less power and produce less heat than traditional endpoints – dropping energy costs by half in some deployments. And, you can easily manage all your Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients with PCoIP Management Console, which provides IT administrators with a single web-based console for simplified management and configuration of their deployment.

  • What is IQT’s involvement in Teradici?

    In-Q-Tel is focused on new and emerging commercial technologies that have the potential to give the CIA and broader U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) mission-advantage today and in the future. In-Q-Tel is an investor in Teradici and has been a partner in development of particular Tera2 security features.
  • Does Teradici have third-party certifications such as Common Criteria and FIPS providing independent validation of the security of Teradici PCoIP products?

    Teradici’s PCoIP display protocol is Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS-140-2) certified as part of VMware View (PCoIP Cryptographic Module for VMware View" (December 2011).

    Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients use AES 256-bit. Teradici’s PCoIP technology is a component part of many OEM desktop clients and these partners can provide further information on third-party certifications for their products.
  • Where can I find a TCO calculator for VDI virtual desktop?

    There are a number of calculators available today from various vendors. The VMware TCO calculator can be found here:
  • What is the difference between Tera1 and Tera2 encryption capabilities?

    Tera1 zero clients use AES 128-bit or Salsa256-bit encryption. Tera2 zero clients use AES 128-bit encryption or AES 256-bit encryption (Salsa256-bit is no longer required or supported on Tera2).
  • Do PCoIP zero clients support pre-session smart card authentication?

    Yes, a full list of USB Smart Card models can be found in our support site under Knowledge Base item 15134-299.
  • What are the new features that have been added to Tera2 PCoIP zero clients?

    Tera2 zero clients include a more powerful image engine and zero client processor core to support an even richer set of features and even higher performance than the first generation Tera1 processors. The new processors and new zero clients have also been optimized to use less power, less physical hardware PCB space and fewer hardware components. The new features include:

    • DisplayPort added to existing DVI and VGA interfaces with up to 2560x1600 resolution and 30” monitor support
    • Up to five times the VDI pixel performance over the previous generation zero client
    • At under 6W of typical system power, Tera2 dual display zero clients consume half the power of the previous generation
    • New quad display zero client support with VMware View
    • Faster USB 2.0 transfer rates
    • Reduced bandwidth with client-side caching and enhanced compression
    • Full power management with Wake-on-LAN support
    • Stronger AES 256-bit encryption
    • Support for upcoming unified communications voice over IP solutions
    • Additional smart card support and other new features included in the latest PCoIP Firmware and PCoIP Management Console release
