A large financial advisory firm needed to ensure their team could complete their work remotely or on mobile devices while complying with industry regulations. The company turned to one of our partners for a virtual desktop solution. Ultimately, deploying virtual workstations instead of distributing and managing laptops led to less overhead and a lighter workload for the company’s IT team since they didn’t have to encrypt numerous devices. They could spend less time maintaining infrastructure and focus more on other vital aspects of business operations.

If you’re looking for a way to ensure security and efficiency for remote workers without overloading your in-house IT team or spending significant amounts on infrastructure, we recommend looking at this supplier’s portfolio. They offer a highly secure and fully managed Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution (a.k.a., Workstation as a Service) that they recently reviewed in a meeting with our trusted advisors.
