Neoware Introduces Thin Client Notebook to Solve Enterprise Local Data Loss and Security Problems

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.-Neoware, Inc. (Nasdaq:NWRE), today introduced the Neoware m100 thin client notebook, becoming the first leading global thin client provider to offer the mobility of a notebook computer combined with the security of a thin client. Unlike traditional mobile devices that place potentially sensitive data at risk by storing information locally on the notebook, Neoware m100 thin client notebooks pose no data risk, as they have no hard drive and no information – such as employee or customer data – can be stored locally. All files and applications remain on the server where they are better protected from data theft.

The ramifications of lost data are costly to individuals and organizations alike. According to the Ponemon Institute, a leading research firm on privacy and security, data breaches cost companies an average of $5 million per incident in direct costs; and 20 percent of data breach victims cut ties with the institutions that compromised their security. Furthermore, the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse has recorded that over 93 million records containing sensitive personal information have been compromised through data security breaches in the United States alone.

The superior data security enabled by the Neoware m100 can also be a boon to organizations dealing with regulations that strictly govern data privacy, including healthcare organizations.

“In today’s healthcare environment, organizations such as ours find themselves under intense scrutiny by regulators to ensure that their sensitive information is kept secure,” explains Ed Sliman, Team Lead, Remote Computing, at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida. “We want to be proactive in finding ways to secure our data and have found that a server-based, thin client computing model, such as the Neoware m100 mobile thin client, can help solve many problems associated with keeping data secure.”

Klaus Besier, President of Neoware, sees the Neoware m100 thin client notebook as a critical step in the evolution of thin clients. He commented, “Thin clients have been heralded for more than a decade as a secure and easy-to-administer computing model. But until now, using a thin client largely meant users were confined to a desk, impeding the adoption of thin clients for workers who need mobile access. But in a world where fears over data security are increasing, the Neoware m100 paves the way for a new workforce that is safer, more secure, and mobile, while opening up a new segment of the PC market for Neoware.”

The information access afforded by the Neoware m100 is changing how thin clients can be deployed. “Mobile users have always required flexible access to applications and information from any location,” said David Jones, Corporate Vice President of Business Development for Citrix Systems. “What’s great about Neoware m100 is that it works with Citrix application delivery infrastructure and provides secure, on-demand access to information for mobile workers. Mobile users can get access to their information anywhere, anytime while the data is always kept securely in the data center.”

With no hard drive or fan, the Neoware m100 thin client notebook has no moving parts, and therefore operates silently, with superior reliability and a battery life of more than six hours. The Neoware m100 features a 15-inch screen, a variety of available country keyboards, and has the capability for Ethernet, USB, built-in Wi-Fi, or cellular connections, which enable data to be accessed from any location — including offices, homes, and hotels.

The Neoware m100 notebook complements existing Neoware product lines, and supports the Microsoft® Windows® XPe and Linux operating systems. The Neoware m100 retails from $759 with Linux and $799 with Microsoft Windows XPe. Product shipments for the Neoware m100 with Windows XPe begin in October. Neoware m100 with Linux will be available soon. For more details, contact Neoware.
