Want to extend the life of your PCs and reduce your IT budget?

From old PC to modern thin client

With ECOS SecureOS

New software and operating system versions place growing requirements on hardware, so PCs often have to be replaced after 3 to 5 years at the latest. Switching to a terminal server or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is a sensible alternative.

The ECOS SecureOS turns previous PCs into high-performing thin clients, extends their service life while saving the IT budget.
