Introducing Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client
Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client reduces end-user computing costs and simplifies device logistics by shipping directly from Amazon fulfillment centers to end users or company locations. End users can set up a device in minutes, with no IT assistance. It also helps improve security by preventing users from storing data or loading applications on the local device, and includes a simple device management service. WorkSpaces Thin Client provides a console to centrally monitor, manage, and maintain devices and their connectivity to AWS virtual desktop services.


WorkSpaces Thin Client provides all the resources needed to support virtual desktop workloads in a cost-effective endpoint device, helping customers reduce overall end-user computing costs.
End users can set up their endpoint device and connect to their virtual desktop in a few minutes using an on-device guided deployment experience, without requiring additional assistance from IT.
Streamlines and expedites logistics by allowing administrators to procure from Amazon Business and ship directly to end users or your office location.
WorkSpaces Thin Client management console allows IT administrators to centrally monitor, manage, and maintain devices and their connectivity to AWS virtual desktop services.
Minimize the risk of a security breach or unauthorized data exfiltration. WorkSpaces Thin Client does not allow downloading of files, installation of applications, or use of removable media. IT determines which applications end users can access within their AWS virtual desktop environment.
