EVGA provides 24/7 customer support, Enterprise RMA service, Imprivata One-Sign support, and TAA-compliant units. All EVGA zero clients use less than 15W power suitable for today’s green market.

About EVGA PCoIP Technology
EVGA’s PCoIP products offer the right solution for the best experience. With copper and fiber models available, users can cover business from all sides on all networks with ease of management and security. EVGA’s zero clients are “true zero clients” providing the user with a small foot print design, low power consumption, centralized security protection, OS versatility and full USB 2.0 support. Centralized computing is now a truly viable option for all user types, either locally via LAN or remotely via WAN. Host rendering preserves the PC environment so applications perform as they should. PCoIP broadcasts only the encrypted pixels not the data across the network to the client. This makes it possible for a stateless, decode only device, a true zero client.
