Thin Client

link22 Outpost Access Terminal is a hardened lightweight computer running link22 kiosk application that restricts access control and prevent information leakage.

Secure virtual desktops in your office

Outpost Access Terminal is our answer to the need for thin clients, adapted for stationary placement within your office environment. Outpost Access Terminal implements a role-based access control. The standard Windows Desktop is replaced with a simplified interface where you will be presented with a selection of applications that you are authorized to use. Typically, this means a set of links to virtual desktop environments.

Access to the essentials

The access client replaces the regular desktop interface and presents the user with only the applications and virtual desktops they have access to. Operating in kiosk mode, the client occupies the entire screen. Access resources are consistently virtualized from a data center, ensuring a secure and user-friendly virtual desktop interface.

3 – Central management
