Over the past few months, organizations across the globe have gone remote. This is by far the longest and largest Work from Home (WFH) setting we have ever witnessed so far. There are a few technologies to power a remote workforce, but all are not equal.
When we look at the platforms out there which can support Work from Home employees at a massive scale, Cloud Hosted Virtual Desktops or Desktop as a Service (DaaS) stand out from rest of the solutions out there.
It would be correct to say that there is a natural coherence between DaaS and remote work scenarios. In this post, we will briefly discuss the capabilities of DaaS that make it the perfect fit for most WFH use cases.
On premise infrastructures often need to be ramped up, or refactored to accommodate a change as big as the current remote work environment. DaaS on the other hand is instantly deployable and would not take more than a few hours or days to be fully deployed.
Your remote employees can access their Cloud Hosted Virtual Desktops at a time and through a login device of their own preference. It has nothing to do with your conventional working hours, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Multi Device and OS Support
dinCloud’s Hosted Virtual Desktops (dinHVD) can be accessed via tablet, laptop or desktop PC. Your remote employees also won’t have to worry about the Operating System (OS) these devices run, as Windows, Linux, MacOS, iOS and Android are fully supported.
Secure Remote Work Environment
With a DaaS solution, you get a secure WFH environment. The DaaS provider’s data centers and other cloud infrastructure are protected from cyber threats through multi layered security. dinCloud also offers endpoint level security via Sophos Intercept X solution.
Fulfill Compliance Standards
Leading DaaS providers like dinCloud get their data centers independently certified from third parties. This is done to meet the ever growing international compliance standards around privacy and security of data.
Ease of Management
A DaaS solution is much more feasible to manage as compared to on premise infrastructures. Say you want to provision a new productivity software. In case of DaaS, the whole process will be over even before you know it, without any physical interaction.
BYOD made Easy
Via DaaS, organizations can further reduce their IT related overheads by employing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. This poses no threat to the data or DaaS infrastructure as all the data is stored centrally in powerful and secure data centers.
Remote Collaboration Made Easy
With DaaS at your disposal, collaboration among remote employees can be quite easy. All changes and additions to organizational data are made centrally at the data center level, which become visible to remotely working colleagues in real time.
Ease of On-Boarding New Talent
DaaS empowers you to onboard new human resources in a very short amount of time. All you have to do is assign an HVD to the employee remotely, which won’t take more than a few minutes in most cases.
Both DaaS and remote work are a perfect duo. The inherent capabilities of DaaS perfectly align with the remote work needs of the present era. Contact dinCloud for reliable, secure and cost efficient DaaS solutions for remote work.
