Share Article

vmSight™, the leader in managing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) for performance, reliability and compliance, today announced that the company’s patented Connector ID technology is now available for thin clients used in virtual desktop deployments. The new capability allows virtual desktop administrators to more effectively manage end-to-end performance and reliability of VDI deployments where thin clients are used, as well as to provide more detailed user tracking for security and compliance.

Many of our customers deploy thin clients as part of their VDI rollout

vmSight's patented Connector ID technology provides the same capability for computer networks that caller ID provides for phone networks, identifying the person and device making a "call" to or from any virtual desktop. Invisible to users, Connector ID involves no additional authentication steps. Already supported for all Windows and Linux virtual desktops, Connector ID is now available for thin client terminals with embedded Windows or Linux operating systems. Connector ID Keys embed directly into the thin client OS image and become activated upon use.

"Many of our customers deploy thin clients as part of their VDI rollout," said Jonathan Alexander, President and co-founder of vmSight. "With the user and device tracking from thin client Connector ID Keys, administrators are able to monitor VDI performance end-to-end and to also increase the security and compliance benefits of VDI."

As part of the company's Virtual Network Intelligence product suite for virtual desktop deployments, the patented Connector ID technology allows vmSight to manage performance, reliability and compliance for specific users, terminals and virtual desktops. vmSight Monitoring Stations track service levels and compliance policies in real-time, fully integrated with the vmSight Center for centralized policy management, alerting and reporting.
