Almost 40% of the global workforce is mobile and this percentage is only going to increase in the coming years. Globalisation, digitalisation and increased customer requirements are just some of the reasons why more and more companies are expecting their employees to do their work whenever and wherever. But this flexibility brings new challenges for the IT department, such as ensuring that company data and networks remain inaccessible to unauthorised users.
Given that the new age workforce are expected to be able to work effectively from anywhere, anytime, their organisations should equip them with the right devices to do so.
For Lenovo, productivity is a culmination of these three core capabilities:
Combination of processing power, memory, and graphics.
The key elements for optimum mobile device performance are: powerful processors, resilient operating system, immersive graphics, adequate RAM, large display, and long battery life. Lenovo devices score high on all these aspects, so you never have to compromise on device performance again.
Combination of enclosure formats, docking solutions, and use modes.
Lenovo ThinkPads ensure flexibility to keep up with modern collaboration options.
Employee mobility is supported with:
Combination of ports and WLAN conncetivity plus built-in-LTE-A.
Connectivity boosts productivity. Stay connected at all times within Lenovo ThinkPads – even when there’s no Wi-Fi. Fast mobile broadband ensures users are always connected to all their data and apps in the Cloud.
Just because the employees have the flexibility to work from anywhere and have access to organisational resources at all times, it doesn’t mean that the IT departments should be burdened to enable this.
Ensure PC access for authorised personnel only.
Lenovo’s biometric fingerprint recognition ensures simplified access management and robust security. Leading in multi factor authentication, Lenovo also offers the following features in its devices:
Smart card access.
A highly secure way of storing login information in tamper-proof cards that can also be used to manage access to multiple devices without using passwords.
Near Field Communication (NFC).NFC is a type of radio communication standard, much like Bluetooth, WiFi, and other networking technologies. To snag the NFC signal to log in, the user needs to be physically close to the company’s PC, with the right NFC tag or secondary device.
IR Camera with Windows Hello.With Windows Hello, the optional IR camera on selected devices simplifies and secures the login process. Windows Hello face authentication uses a camera specially configured for near infrared (IR) imaging to authenticate and unlock the device.
Prevent data theft from USB or other access ports on company PCs.
Camera hacking risks can be avoided by physically covering the camera. With the shutter built into the camera, protecting privacy just requires closing the camera cover.
Kensington® Cable lock.
The Kensington® Cable Lock helps reduce theft and increase physical asset security protection for notebooks, notebook docking stations, desktops, and flat panel monitors.
Lenovo ThinkPad Ultra Dock.
This innovative docking solution is easy to connect and secures your system while you are away. A Security Lock conveniently secures both the device and your dock to the desk with a single key. It provides a driver-free convenient connection securely to a range of USB accessories and external displays.
Prevent data theft and loss.
Fast Identity Online (FIDO).
FIDO authentication pertains to online credentials when users sign into internal and external websites or make payments online. It ensures hardened authentication and wraps access information into three layers of security.
Discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM).
The dTPM 2.0 chip embedded in ThinkPad devices enables and stores unique RSA encryption keys specific to the host system for hardware authentication.
Better Management and Control.
Experience Pro SSD integration with Intel® Remote Secure Erase from Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT)..
In-built Mobile Device Management.
Windows 10 Mobile Device Management (MDM) support, lets you use Cloud-based management services* to control business and personal devices.
BUFFERZONE enables employees to browse the net safely by opening the browser in a container in case a threat is detected. With detailed reporting and integration with SIEM and Big Data analytics, BUFFERZONE helps identify targeted attacks.
Coronet can detect and evade unsafe wireless connections over both WiFi and Cellular networks. It requires no installation and ensures that only trusted devices, networks, and Cloud services can access your data.
Just because the devices are sleek and good looking doesn’t mean they have to compromise on durability. End computing devices should be an extension of the end user and should be able to adapt to their requirements.
Made up of materials ensuring lightness, ruggedness, and better device performance.
The lightness, ruggendness, strength, and feel of a laptop are highly influenced by the type and mix of materials used.
Lenovo prides itself on using superior materials:
Consistent technology enhancements to ensure that the end computing devices are adept to meet the requirements of new age workforce.
Innovative technology is about using proven techniques in new and creative ways to solve genuine user problems, address electronic, and mechanical design challenges, and enhance features, and functions of the operating system.
Here are Lenovo’s latest innovations that will have a big impact on business users:
Precision touchpad and Wave keyboard on convertibles and 2-in-1s for easy usability in various modes.
ThinkPad Glance, Windows Hello (using IR camera) and Match on Chip Fingerprint Reader (MoC FPR) to ensure PC access for authorised personnel only.
New antenna location and narrow bezel design that enhance wireless performance and durability.
New carbon fibre top cover to protect ThinkPads from everyday bumps and knocks.
Diagnostic SmartBeep and Diagnostic Apap to identify the nature of any problem with a simple smartphone app for faster resolutions.
Cooling and Heat Management.
Intelligent Sensing and Cooling technology to reduce heat and ensure user comfort while working with the ThinkPad placed on the lap.
Safety and Device Protection.
Anti-fry protection on USB-C protects the ThinkPad from accidental exposure to higher voltage.
MIL-SPEC tested with additional in-built technology make Lenovo devices sturdy and reliable.
For users who work on the go, it’s important to have PCs that can perform consistently in all conditions and can withstand anything from accidental drops to extreme temperatures.
ThinkPads go through a battery of tests and comprise some trademark features that make them more reliable.
From spilled drinks, to drops and knocks, these devices are tested against 12 military-grade requirements and pass more than 200 durability tests.
Intelligent sensing and cooling.
The on board accelerometer detects the mode of usage and varies power consumption to deliver effective cooling levels which allows ThinkPads to be up to 15% cooler and 10% quieter.
Owl Wing fan.
ThinkPads have the new 8th Generation, patented owl wing inspired fans which churn out 38% more airflow and 15% better thermal performance over previous generations to ensure it is dustless for enhanced reliability.
Lenovo’s SmartBeep technology allows you to quickly identify the nature of any problem with a simple smartphone app for faster resolutions.
Discrete TPM Security.
All models of the ThinkPad now have a Discrete TPM 2.0 hardware security chip with TCG certification. The dTPM 2.0 chip encrypts user data on the PC.
