Strengthening Information Security with Desktop Virtualization

By: | Category: IT / Infrastructure

To operate at peak performance your staff needs access to applications in more places and in more ways than ever before—but the resulting proliferation of work locations, types of workers and access methods has pushed traditional security strategies to the breaking point. That, plus the consumerization of IT, adds further complexity as a diverse mix of laptops, tablets and smartphones enter the environment, including both enterprise-provisioned and personally-owned devices.

While technologies such as firewalls, antivirus, access control and perimeter monitoring remain an important base, they’re increasingly bypassed. What’s needed is a new security layer—one that makes it possible to manage risk more effectively.

Many have turned to desktop virtualization in order to provide that additional security layer, allowing freedom for users to embrace mobility, flexwork, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and to deploy personnel and resources wherever and whenever they’re needed. Desktop virtualization is further complemented by secure file sharing and enterprise mobility management that helps fortify information security and compliance across apps, data and devices in support of business and IT priorities.

The compelling benefits of desktop virtualization have already made it a top agenda item for many organizations. Don’t fall behind in the attempt to get your information security practices under control.
