Stateless Computing is Secure Computing

Whether you're working on a classified network or dealing with sensitive personal data, Symbio Technologies' approach to server-centric computing using solid-state, diskless zero clients is the most secure and affordable computing solution available for local, state and federal public administration and government agencies.

That's why Symbio Technologies was chosen over other thin client products by the Department of Energy.  Image    

"...We have had problems in the past with classified hard drives and classified disks. To permanently eliminate the threat of such problems, I propose an initiative to move to diskless workstations for classified computing over the next five years..."

Spencer Abraham,
U.S. Energy Secretary
May 2004

That's why The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) chose Symbio Technologies' solution to meet the demands of the agency's mandate to make its computing diskless by 2008.

"If we are to continue to operate effectively, we have to actively protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all of the information on our automated systems... we have to be on the cutting edge of cyber security...

Recognizing the urgency of this imperative and the potential consequences of falling behind in this area, we resolved to do more to ,,,,reduce the exposure of classified information stored on computer  media." 

Testimony of Glenn S. Podonsky

Before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations

That's why many of America's national labs have chosen Symbio Technologies.

"One solution has consistently stood out in
the areas of ease of administration, less user downtime, and most importantly, a more secure and robust environment.The preferred solution here at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) site is the stateless thin client solution."
