San Jose, Calif.--one of Switzerland's largest health insurance organizations for private and corporate customers, Christian & Social Health and Accident Insurance (CSS), has deployed more than 1,900 Linux-based thin-client devices at its headquarters in Lucerne and regional branch offices. This deployment of devices from Wyse Technology, replaces a previous solution at CSS from a competing thin-client vendor.The Linux-based thin-client solutions provide CSS with an adaptable alternative to the standard PC that is inherently resistant from viruses, and helps CSS' distributed organization to save a significant amount of time, money and IT management resources, according to Wyse Technology.

Benefits of the thin-client deployment at CSS locations include centralized data security, scalability on the network, flexibility to deploy the device in multiple-OS environments. In addition, free seating is enabled, providing CSS staff members with the ability to access applications and data from any device on the network with the same end-user experience. With no moving parts, the Wyse V50, and all members of the V class thin client family of products, operate silently and are maintenance free.
