Forcepoint Trusted Thin Client is comprised of two components, a Distribution Console and client software. The Distribution Console is the solution’s server component and provides the physical connection to one or more single-level virtualized networks, maintaining separation between each. The Distribution Console leverages the Common Criteria evaluated (EAL4+) Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system with Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) to provide stringent security controls and maintain the necessary network/data separation. The client software communicates directly with the Distribution Console and provides secure, simultaneous access to permitted networks, applications and data. While providing connectivity to multiple security domains through common virtualization and desktop and application redisplay technologies (e.g., Citrix, Microsoft, VMware), each network has a separate physical network interface connection on the Distribution Console that is assigned the classification level of the domain.
Designed and built to meet the needs of any enterprise deployment, Forcepoint Trusted Thin Client is the most secure yet flexible access solution available today, providing robust centralized management for multiple form factors, globally dispersed sites and thousands of users. Administrators are equipped with centralized administration and monitoring, scalability to easily add networks and clients, and the flexibility to enable access to users in offices, in-theater, and in the field from virtually any device.
Environments that provide connection to high-risk networks, such as unclassified networks or the open Internet, are required to operate in a restricted manner. To enforce this requirement, Forcepoint Trusted Thin Client installation is modular based on your environment. Restricted, high-risk environments are installed with some features removed.
The Distribution Console is the solution’s administration and monitoring hub from which all Distribution Consoles, endpoints and users are administered through the Management Console application. It is recommended that all deployments utilize multiple Distribution Consoles to address server outages, scheduled maintenance and unexpected hardware failures.
