The Lenovo Cloud: All Silver Lining
A Powerful New Normal
Even as mandates and the market help make cloud computing the new normal for federal IT, significant issues remain. Concerns about security, cost and governance add to the already complicated challenge of ensuring cloud support for important legacy assets as well as critical security and policy guidance. So how can agencies maximize the power of the cloud while preserving cost, manageability and control?
Lenovo understands both sides of the dilemma and builds unique solutions that give end-users no-compromise cloud potential that is secure, reliable and efficient enough to meet the strict demands of federal IT policy and best practice.
Comprehensive Cloud Connectivity
Our cloud expertise goes well beyond our innovative software platforms, including hardware systems specially optimized for service in the cloud. Lenovo’s Cloud-Ready Clients give ThinkPad® laptops and ThinkStation® workstations instant access to the cloud, with the client managing and optimizing how cloud services and applications perform on the machine.
Use Secure Cloud Access (SCA) to extend the cloud to other devices, cloud-ready or not. SCA detects user and device information (authentication method, device capability, location) and uses it to assign access to local or cloud-based resources. SCA also supports SSL or VPN access, external directory integration and advanced FIPs-approved cryptography and encryption.
