HP Boosts Business Productivity with New Secure Mobile Thin Client Solution
BARCELONA, Spain — HP today announced a new thin client solution designed to increase productivity for mobile workers with a lighter-weight device that combines high performance, reliable connectivity and secure access to data.
With the HP mt41 Mobile Thin Client, users can stay productive and protect even the most sensitive data while on the go, because nothing resides on the device itself, just like a traditional thin client. Employees simply turn on the notebook-form device and log in to the secure network at the office, at home or anywhere they have access to the cloud.(1)
“We’re seeing a growing trend in the number of workers who regularly travel and work off-campus, but still require secure access to data,” said Jeff Groudan, marketing director, Thin Clients, HP. “The HP mt41 is ideal for a mobile workforce because its lightweight, enterprise-level durable design allows employees to work both securely and efficiently, while enduring the rigors of the road.”
Reliable connectivity, maximum security, powerful performance
The HP mt41 benefits organizations in industries such as education and healthcare, and on-campus mobile workers who need to travel light and gain quick, secure access to data stored on a remote server or in the cloud.
Key features on the HP mt41 include:
- Reliable connectivity to the network. The HP mt41 has WWAN 3G/4G LTE capabilities (2), giving employees more connectivity options and quick access to important data.
- Better user experience with HP Velocity. HP Velocity network performance management software, included with the HP mt41, intelligently adapts to network conditions, improving network utilization to help ensure telecommuters as well as WiFi, 3G/4G and mobile users achieve the most optimal experience, particularly for applications such as unified communications.
- Inherently secure. The mt41 incorporates the latest dual-core AMD processor and TPM chipset to help workers stay productive and protect data with an optimized secure connection while at remote sites. (3) With Microsoft Windows® Embedded Standard (WES) 7 E operating systems, users can enjoy the Windows experience they already know and rest easy knowing that their critical data is stored on a secure remote server, whether they are in the office, at home or traveling.
- Intuitive, easy management with HP Device Manager. The latest version of HP’s powerful thin client management tool comes preinstalled on the HP mt41, allowing businesses to easily configure, deploy and reimage HP mobile thin clients—even when employees are on the road.
- Easy travel with a compact, lightweight design. With a 14-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) antiglare display and a starting weight of 4.78 lb (2.17kg), the HP mt41 is ideal for telecommuters and mobile workers who require secure and reliable access to their data while on the go.
The HP mt41 Mobile Thin Client is suited for enterprises that have deployed virtualization solutions from the major independent software vendors (ISVs)—Citrix, Microsoft and VMware—for their desktop virtualization deployments.

The HP mt41 Mobile Thin Client will be available worldwide in November. Pricing is available upon request.
The new HP mt41 will be demonstrated at VMworld in Barcelona, Oct. 15, in Booth No. D211.
