Tehama combines secure virtual desktops with the raw power of Linux

OTTAWA, ONTARIO – October 8, 2020 – Tehama, the fastest, easiest, most secure way to deploy a global workforce, is pleased to announce that it’s bringing its automated, SaaS-based work environments to Linux with Tehama Linux Desktops.

Tehama offers Linux

Tehama offers Linux users the power of high-performance computing (HPC)-related activities like software or game development, chip design, IoT development and IT administration, defended by Tehama’s highly secure virtual rooms when connecting to the cloud, applications, and corporate and IT infrastructure. It’s a perfect match for those who want their primary desktop to run on Linux.

Built-in SOC 2 Type II compliance

Tehama Linux Desktops use a Ubuntu KDE environment by default, and has built-in SOC 2 Type II compliance mechanisms and audit controls for automated compliance, along with zero-trust access, multi-factor authentication and automated security and firewall patches for secure connections. It also uses a pay as you go payment model, meaning you only pay for the time you use.

“Our team of developers couldn’t live without Linux,” said Álvaro Hernandez, Founder, OnGres. “Using Tehama Linux Desktops, they’re now able to enjoy a seamless experience when performing regular business tasks, combined with Linux’s raw power in their back pocket. It’s also cost-efficient because Linux users that might typically need two different machines with licensing and maintenance now have everything they need in one place,” he added.

Secure and Compliant Access

Tehama Linux Desktops have massive implications for several Linux-heavy industries. For software developers and content creators, it means secure, compliant access to powerful HPC sandbox environments, IDE support, and sensitive data protection with easy multi-monitor support. For IT administrations, it means secure web app delivery and management using a secure browser alongside secure administration tools.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing Tehama’s industry-leading virtual offices, rooms and desktops to Linux,” said Jaymes Davis, Tehama’s Director of Product Strategy. “Many of our customers have been asking us for Tehama for Linux Plasma Desktops, and we’re proud to be able to deliver this enhanced user experience with Tehama. Tehama Linux Desktops enable easy centralized IT management of Linux desktops, along with platform support and a consistent user experience,” he added.

For more information on Tehama Linux Desktops, please book a demo.

We also invite you to join us on October 21 at 1:00 PM E.T. for a live webinar on how to build a secure distributed development organization. Our panelists will be discussing why Linux users have been let down by traditional Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solutions, and how you can improve developer productivity and software delivery with a virtual office-as-service (OaaS).

Ready or Not: Why Public Sector Agencies Must Digitally Transform to Succeed in the Hybrid Work Era

The rapid migration to remote work during the pandemic sped digital transformation initiatives across nearly all sectors – from financial services to healthcare to hospitality, and even the public sector. The hard pivot that occurred in March 2020 impacted government agencies significantly, forcing them to test the waters on wide scale remote work. From virtual courtrooms to classrooms, to telehealth and the digital delivery of services including permitting, records and administration, virtually no part of government operations remained untouched.  Many of the changes that happened during this time are still having a profound impact on the way government agencies operated.…
