Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Compaq has licensed Citrix's ICA client for use in its C-Series handheld Windows CE devices. The ICA client for the C-Series will be available for download from Citrix's site from next month, and Compaq also intends to embed ICA technology in its handhelds. Compaq joins a long list of ICA licensees, IBM, HP and Sun being three of the more prominent, but in Compaq's case the deal goes a lot further than just an ICA client. Compaq has so far made a fair stab at cornering the server end of the Citrix WinFrame/MetaFrame market. The nice thing about Citrix from Compaq's point of view is that it costs out as being most advantageous for users to have extremely meaty servers to support their extremely thin clients. So while providing the channel with the aforementioned servers and a set of installation and set-up aids, Compaq recommends Wyse terminals to go with them, rather than building its own. ® Click for more stories
