Equipping Your IT Infrastructure to be Future-ready for Workforce Mobility

Almost 40% of the global workforce is mobile and this percentage is only going to increase in the coming years. Globalization, digitization, increasing customer demands are few of the reasons why more and more organizations expect their employees to be able to work from anywhere, anytime, and in any way that they need to.

But this flexibility poses newer challenges to the IT departments as they need to ensure that the company data and network is safe and impenetrable.

Uncompromised Productivity

Given that the new age workforce are expected to be able to work effectively from anyhwere, anytime, their organizations should equip them with the right devices to do so.

For Lenovo, productivity is a culmination of these three core capabilities

Performance

Performance

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.

The ThinkPad X1 Series gives you the horsepower to handle heavy tasks and battery life to last all day. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga can last up to 15 hours and can charge up to 80% in less than an hour.

Apart from the heavy duty performance features, the X1 devices also take care of the finer details to ensure maximum productivity, like:

Flexibility

Flexibility

Our devices ensure flexibility to keep up with modern collaboration options. Workforce mobility can be facilitated through:

  • Self-service Support Options: boost the value of your mobile devices with Lenovo’s accessories ecosystem. Connect ultrabooks and laptops to multiple monitors for better visualization and multitasking. Or attach a wave keyboard for more comfortable and accurate typing experience
  • Docking Options: experience easy portability for the ThinkPad X1 Series, ThinkPad T Series, ThinkPad P Series, ThinkPad X Series, and Lenovo V Series devices as they include the ThinkPad Thunderbolt™ 3. Connect a cable from your USB-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device, and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type, while also supplying power. So you get Thunderbolt, USB-C, and DisplayPort. Plus, you can even output to two 4K displays with the Thunderbolt Dock
  • High-quality User Experiences: enjoy multiple modes for a comfortable working experience on convertibles
Connectivity

Connectivity

Connectivity is the heart of productivity. Our devices keep you up and running even if you are out of WiFi range. Fast mobile broadband ensures users are always connected to all their data and apps in the Cloud:

  • LTE-A (4G): even when WiFi is out of range, the optional Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X7 LTE-A means users always have connectivity and access to all their data and apps in the Cloud
  • Tri-Band Wireless: the Intel® Tri-Band Wireless delivers high-speed wireless docking connectivity for mobile devices like 2-in-1s, tablets, and laptops. This means users can have WiFi-like connectivity anywhere, anytime, without any hassles
  • Near Field Communication (NFC): Bluetooth-like feature to facilitate data transfers to nearby devices. To break in through an NFC signal, a user needs to be physically close to the company’s PC and have the right NFC tag
 

Reliable Durability

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.

Finest Materials

Finest Materials

The lightness, ruggedity, strength, and feel of a laptop are highly influenced by the type and mix of materials used.
ThinkPad X1 YogaLenovo prides itself on using superior materials:

  • The carbon fiber used in ThinkPads offers superior strength and rigidity
  • The grade of carbon fiber used is the same as that used on satellites with 1/3rd the
    weight of Aluminum and 50% more strength than Magnesium at almost 1/2 the weight
  • For parts like the palm rest area, which are subjected to extra stress, we use
    Magnesium, which provides maximum strength
  • To ensure a strong signal strength for a seamless wireless experience, the antennas in
    the palm rest area are made up of metal mesh and gold plated shielding

Reliability

Reliability

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.

MIL-SPEC Tested
MIL-SPEC Tested

With four layers of carbon-fiber reinforced chassis and a magnesium alloy roll cage for added strength, we’ve engineered our devices to handle whatever comes your way. 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<br/> and Cooling
Intelligent Sensing
and Cooling

Lenovo’s in-built Intelligent Sensing and Cooling system helps to reduce heat and ensure user comfort while working with the ThinkPad placed on the lap. It uses the on board accelerometer to detect the mode of usage and vary power consumption to deliver effective cooling levels which allows ThinkPads to be up to 15% cooler and 10% quieter.

Owl Wing Fan
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.

Discrete TPM Security
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.

 

360° Security

Just because the employees have the flexibility to work from anywhere and have access to organizational resources at all times,
it doesn’t mean that the IT departments should be burdened to enable this.

User Access Control

Biometric Fingerprint
Recognition Technology

User Access Control

Multi Factor Authentication

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:

  • Match on Chip (MoC) Fingerprint Reader technology in which biometric credentials are stored on a separate chip, making it almost impossible to hack into
  • Further protect identity and secure data with Intel® Authenticate

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. Smart cards directly implement a two-factor authentication policy, ensuring that devices are averse to threats.

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. Also, the IR camera doesn’t capture photos – this prevents spoofing and provides uncompromised security.

Port and Physical Protection
