Virtual Desktop and Applications
In the world that is steadily going virtual and remote, the need to shift to virtual desktop and applications is becoming almost mandatory in all spheres of organizational processes. With a virtual desktop, remote employees are able to access their computers from anywhere in the world. The data, applications and operating system stored on the network can be accessed using login details by the user, remotely. The desktop is in the virtual environment and is separate from the physical device that can be accessed from the desktop.
Why should organizations use virtual desktop and applications?

Enhances the security aspects of the entire ecosystem as it all works in next-generation cloud platforms.
The data is never stored on the local machine – it travels to the backend datacentres.
