2020 has introduced a wave of unprecedented conditions. Most notably, Covid-19 and the accompanying global pandemic left many organisations eager to find ways to accommodate an increasingly virtual workforce.
In today’s environment, it’s vital for businesses to enable remote work strategies for their teams. Windows Virtual Desktop enables users to continue work through desktop and application virtualisation, empowering companies to provide a secure, productive experience in a changing world.
Talk about timing. With the coronavirus forcing a telecommuting sea change — we went from corporate workers begging, usually unsuccessfully, to be allowed to work from home to businesses insisting that they do so — Microsoft released its latest and best desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) program, Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD).
Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) allows companies to run Windows desktops hosted on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.
WVD provides users with a full Windows 10 experience and the productivity and business intelligent tools that they know and love. Whether in the field, working remote, or travelling, employees will be able to access their desktop environment with WVD. WVD works across devices, and from any location with an internet connection!
WVD is built in Azure, so it is secure by design. WVD users log in to access their desktop environment, so you can easily protect sensitive company and customer information with Multi-Factor Authentication.
WVD was designed to keep confidential customer information secure. Role-based access control in WVD allows you to easily manage user groups and assign permissions to protect sensitive information.
WVD is a unique solution because it provides a better user experience, at a lower overall cost than other desktop virtualisation solutions. With WVD you can utilise your Microsoft 365 subscriptions (most SKUs) to cover licensing costs and pay only for Azure infrastructure. WVD has the unique benefit of being the only solution that provides a Windows 10 desktop experience at multi-session cost. It is the best of traditional Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, at the cost of a Remote Desktop Solution.
Businesses are latching on to WVD as a way to solve their sudden telecommuting difficulties. Simon Binder, endpoint manager at Microsoft, recently tweeted that there are “6 times more [WVD] users active today than expected during 2020.”
Provide employees the best virtualised experience with the only solution fully optimised for Windows 10 and Office 365.
