Toronto, Canada, November 12, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Jentu and AVANT secure PC have announced an alliance aimed for immediate availability of both Jentu Technologies Diskless Computing Appliance along with AVANT’s hardware-protected servers, ready for deployment in the most secure conditions, as a secure addition to VDI, standard desktop deployment and centralized management.
AVANT secure PC provides hardware-only system drive protected servers, desktops and laptops. Once configured, the operating system boots in a locked state, where only the system owner can make changes to the system OS or Applications software and program configurations. The AVANT secure server requires a physical 2048-bit key to authorize the operating system or program changes. By performing a simple system reboot, AVANT secure PC eliminates advanced persistent threats (APTs) that can compromise the security of an individual system or in conjunction with Jentu the entire organization.
Key elements of the combined products include:
