In the context of a rapidly changing and connected world, HP is elevating its commitment to purpose-built cloud devices with the introduction of new Chrome Enterprise and thin client solutions.

The use of VDI and web-based applications has continued to rise around the world and COVID-19 has accelerated this shift. As a result, IT professionals are faced with managing, deploying, scaling, and securing cloud endpoints to a geographically dispersed workforce, in a rapidly growing virtual environment.

HP announced sleek, purpose-built HP cloud devices, reinvented for frontline workers, home and office navigators, and mobile trailblazers, designed with powerful AMD Ryzen™ Mobile Processors and powerful Intel Core 10th generation processors, that IT can rapidly deploy, secure and manage, with premium experiences their workforce will appreciate.
