Toshiba's zero-client solution aims to let employees work on-the-go without violating existing company protocols.

Toshiba will be bringing its first virtualization software called Toshiba Mobile Zero Client (TMZC) to enterprises and businesses. The feature will allow employees to work on sensitive tasks outside of the workplace without needing to store any data locally. Its goal is to allow companies to be more mobile without sacrificing safety or security along the way. Thus, TMZC should cater well to medium-large companies and employees who are often on the road.

TMZC requires no OS or HDD and supports all major cloud-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions including Citrix and VMware. Thus, users can run their own virtual desktop from almost anywhere with Internet connectivity or LTE as all functionality and data are provided via VDI. The lack of any locally stored data would also greatly reduce the risk of malware and theft according to the manufacturer.

Toshiba offers TMZC on its latest business notebooks including those from the Portege Z series. For extra protection, Toshiba can limit connections, change authentications, and prevent bootup of external devices through special BIOS updates since the manufacturer develops its own UEFI specifications.

More details and information on TMZC can be found on Toshiba's dedicated page.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
