Secure access to corporate networks

With the ECOS SecureBootStick CL

The ECOS SecureBootStick CL provides highly secure VPN access to corporate networks as Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops, Microsoft Terminal Server (RDSH), VMware View/Horizon or web applications in a secure remote access environment.

The stick ensures a strict separation between business and private use of a PC when working from home or implementing BYOD concepts (bring your own device). The specially hardened ECOS Secure Linux operating system boots the PC, whereas the local Windows is not addressed. No viruses or Trojans can therefore be activated.
