If not, then you should consider a virtual desktop solution. Check out our latest video to learn more:

What Are Virtual Desktops?

Virtual desktops are not a new concept. Some vendors have been offering compelling virtual desktop solutions and have established themselves as market leaders early on as a result. But it’s been a tough grind as many industries weren’t quite ready to embrace the concept.

However, given the ongoing pandemic crisis, all that has changed. Business owners are in need of a convenient and secure way to access work data remotely and keep their business productive.

The virtual desktop virtualizes what’s on your computer. When you use a virtual desktop, all of your icons, wallpaper, folders, toolbars, etc. are stored remotely on a server rather than on your computing device.

With the right authorization, your computing environment can be accessed from any computing device. When you’re away from the office, all you need is a computer and to sign in to your virtual environment. You can access your desktop with devices such as desktop, laptops, mobile devices, and thin clients.

A virtual desktop environment lets your staff access applications and documents from multiple devices like workstations, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. This increases productivity because your employees can access the data they need from anywhere.
