Not all remote desktop software or display protocols are created equal
If you have ever accessed a remote workspace, you have used a remote display protocol. Teradici CAS connects users to their remote desktops and workstations, delivering a highly responsive, color-accurate, lossless, and distortion-free experience for even the most graphics-intensive workloads.
Teradici does this through the PCoIP protocol, which ensures your organization’s data and content never leave your secure data center. Awarded an Emmy by the Television Academy for Engineering Development, Teradici is the gold standard in remoting software for performance, security, and deployment flexibility.
You choose the infrastructure you want – any on-prem, in the cloud or hybrid data center, any OS and application, any client endpoint. And over 15 million endpoints deployed around the globe Top government agencies, media conglomerates, production studios, financial firms, and design houses trust Teradici to support their need for secure, high-performance virtual desktops and workstations.
Keep content and data secure in your data center
Based on secure PCoIP remote display protocol that connects more than 15 million endpoints around the globe, no data or business information leaves the safety of the corporate network.
With PCoIP technology, only display information in the form of fully encrypted pixels are transferred to the remote endpoint and with Multi-Factor Authentication, only the right users can connect. This is why IT administrators from top government agencies and large media & entertainment studios trust Teradici CAS to keep their data and content secure.
You choose the infrastructure and hardware
Teradici CAS works on any host environment. Employees and contractors can remotely access their Windows, Linux or macOS desktops that are on physical workstations, on-prem data centers, or hosted in public clouds. Even dark site deployments are supported.
And the same is true on the client side, unless your team is trying to access their remote desktop from a 2005 flip phone. With CAS remoting software, IT teams can leverage whatever endpoint devices are in the office or what users have sitting around at home, without compromising security.
Keep users productive everywhere and anywhere
The PCoIP protocol, which enables Teradici CAS connections, was designed to deliver interactive applications, regardless of network conditions. It’s a multi-codec solution that dynamically adapts, encodes and delivers the most accurate and distortion-free experience.
CAS remoting software also enhances desktop performance, as data, compute, and graphics are in the same environment, eliminating data transfer times and improving user productivity. Offering uncompromised 4K/UHD throughput, efficient scaling across multicore CPUs and intelligent Auto-Offload between CPU and GPU encoder resources, Teradici CAS makes users forget they’re not in the office or at their workstation (unless of course they are in the office working on a virtual machine).
CAS makes all the magic happen for Windows, Linux and macOS desktops and applications through three core software components
PCoIP Agents can be deployed in any host environment, including workstations or virtual machines running Windows, Linux or MacOS
Teradici offer two different types of Agents depending on whether you require a GPU for graphics-intensive applications or if the applications run solely off a CPU. The Agents can be deployed in a workstation or datacenter, in a public cloud (such as AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure), in multiple clouds or as part of a hybrid environment when you need additional resources for short term projects or when a pandemic or disaster strikes.
Alternatively, PCoIP Remote Workstation Cards also act as an Agent and available from our OEM/ODM partners. .
PCoIP Clients can be installed on any local or remote endpoint device, including PCs, Macs, laptops, tablets, and integrated displays
Because Teracii like to provide options, they also offer many types of client options depending on the type of endpoint device. They have Software Clients for Windows, Linux and MacOS that cover PCs, Macs, laptops or integrated displays. They also have Mobile Clients for Android tablets and laptops as well as iOS tablets.
The PCoIP Clients not only enable users to connect securely to a remote desktop or workstation via the PCoIP Agent and CAS Manager, but they also support multiple displays (up to 4) and peripherals such as Wacom pen displays and tablets or game controllers.
Alternatively, both PCoIP Zero Clients and PCoIP Enabled Thin Clients from their OEM/ODM partners also act as a client in a Teradici CAS deployment. For more of a deep dive or to download one of our software clients, check out their tech docs and downloads.
CAS Manager can be installed in any customer environment or accessed as a Teradici service to secure, broker, provision, and monitor Teradici CAS connections
CAS Manager is the connection management plane that is included in our enterprise subscriptions. The single unified interface enables IT Administrators to provision remote desktops and workstations, manage cloud consumption, and entitle secure PCoIP connections to remote Windows, Linux, or MacOS (coming soon) desktops, all from a single unified interface.
Additional CAS Manager benefits and features:
- Tap into existing Active Directory services, eliminate manual configuration tasks and improve administrative efficiency
- Provide users access to one or many remote desktops and workstations as desired, easily modifying, adding, or removing user access as needed
- Control cloud up-time service charges by turning off machines that are not in active use
- Enable secure user entitlements by brokering PCoIP connections and Multifactor Authentication (MFA) as an added security mechanism
- Support multicloud deployments across public, private or hybrid cloud environments, including AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and on-premises data centers
