What is PCoIP Technology?
Powering the Virtual Workspace
Every big shift is sparked by a breakthrough technology – and powering the new virtual workplace is PCoIP® technology.
PC-over-IP (PCoIP) technology delivers a secure, high-definition and highly responsive computing experience.
PC-over-IP (PCoIP) technology delivers a secure, high-definition and highly responsive computing experience. It uses advanced display compression to provide end users with on-premises or cloud-based virtual machines as a convenient alternative to local computers. This virtual workspace architecture compresses, encrypts and transmits only pixels to a broad range of software clients, mobile clients, thin clients and stateless PCoIP Zero Clients, providing a highly secure enterprise environment.
From a user's perspective, there is no difference between working with a local computer loaded with software and an endpoint receiving a streamed pixel representation from a centralized virtual computer.
Secure Your Data
Because the PCoIP protocol transfers only display information in the form of pixels, no business information ever leaves your cloud or data center.
In addition, because enterprise data and software is safely secured inside central systems, no one can tamper with your data or infiltrate your applications by compromising your local devices. Furthermore, PCoIP traffic is secured using AES 256 encryption, which meets the highest level of security required by governments.
Enable Mobility and Collaboration
Any PCoIP-enabled device — Windows or macOS desktop/laptop, iOS or Android tablet, Chromebook or PCoIP Zero Client — can become a conduit to a secure virtual workstation.
In industries where collaboration is key but data risk is high, our PCoIP protocol offers another layer of protection. People can work collaboratively from anywhere, knowing that sensitive information never leaves the data center and work can never be lost or stolen.
PCoIP technology is designed to deliver a high-performance user experience for knowledge workers and power users using even the most graphics-intensive applications. Power users can work across multiple displays and full frame-rate 3D graphics, enjoy the benefits of USB peripherals, and leverage devices enabled for high-definition media.
With PCoIP technology, your enterprise applications can be located and managed in the cloud or in your data center while your users continue to enjoy premium interactive experience with their desktops and applications.
