Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, 2008/02/12 - Silicon has provided secure computing infrastructure for Acumen Legal Services (I) Pvt Ltd by opting out of traditional legacy systems and moving towards Thin Computing platform.
Silicon Business Solutions Pvt. Ltd., the pioneer in providing State-of-the-art IT Solutions to businesses across Andhra Pradesh, has announced the setting up of a secure and robust IT infrastructure for Acumen, a leading Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) company.
Thin Computing, as the name itself suggests, removes the application load from the client-end and thus makes the client thin. The entire application load is shifted to the Server-End with the help of a robust and scalable server that has the capacity to cater to this load. Thin Computing centralizes all data and software in powerful servers at one or more strategically selected locations.
This enables standard PCs to be replaced by less expensive, more reliable and more secure Thin Clients. With no local operating system or applications to install and patch, maintenance and support costs go down without compromising on the enjoyable desktop experience that comes with PCs.
Equally important, Thin Computing networks are much easier to deploy and manage. With this approach, organizations can deliver secure, isolated desktops that are always on, accessible from anywhere and easy to set up, monitor and maintain. In addition to being highly safe and secure against viruses and data theft, Thin Clients have virtually no hardware-software interdependencies making process-operations free of any possible breakdowns. Thin Clients do not permit users to install unauthorized software—particularly software published by unknown sources.
Being a Legal Process Outsourcing company, the key needs of Acumen was to ensure a Secure IT infrastructure environment with highest availability of the network. Thin Client Computing solution fits into this need exactly and delivers a network which is secure and robust.
Commenting on the solution, Shantanu. Ghosh, President & CEO of Acumen said: “Investing in Thin Clients was a strategic move to address our security concerns. We wanted to have a proper balance between a Distributed Architecture and Server-based Computing to effectively manage our services. Besides saving on the operational costs vis-à-vis the conventional thick clients, they ensure business continuity that is vital to any organization. More importantly, it is always better to use a desktop PC that uses 50% less energy, reduces wastage, and thereby dramatically reduce the overall power consumption..”
“We have always kept our focus on providing solutions that are business focused and aim at providing hassle-free computing at the user and administrator level” commented Sandeep Kumar Dhoundiyal, General Manager, Silicon. “Thin Client Computing always has an edge over the traditional system if security of data is a prime concern for the organization. And with the lower Total Cost of Ownership, it certainly is a strong value-added investment for any organization.”
Taking the cue of Acumen’s success with its solution, Silicon now aims at replicating the Thin Computing environment in security-pro organizations which need value for money for the IT investments done in their infrastructure.
