Could Your Business Benefit From Virtual Desktops?
Have you found the right remote access solution during the pandemic? What happens when the next wave hits, or another crisis sends your staff home? Virtual Desktops may be the solution to your remote access needs.
Although you may be able to bring your staff into the office soon, or have already done so, it’s important not to forget all the hard lessons learned during this pandemic.
A second wave is a distinct possibility, and so, you need to make sure you have a viable remote work plan in place that can be quickly launched.
After seven months of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s likely that your business has gotten into a rhythm with remote work — but if you’re not satisfied with your current remote access solution, it is best to plan now before you really need it again.
Have you considered virtual desktops?
What Are Virtual Desktops?
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 device and to sign in to your virtual environment. You can access your desktop with devices such as desktop, laptops, mobile devices, and thin clients.
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. It has 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.
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.
