Over the past two years or so, it was all about remote work and the challenges associated with it. Now, say hello to hybrid work models, in which a part of the total available workforce would come up at the workplace at any particular time.
Enterprises are resorting to hybrid work for a number of reasons. Unlike entirely office based or work from home settings, hybrid work brings its own set of challenges. It is difficult to configure employee devices for both scenarios at the same time.
Even if a single employee device can be configured separately for remote and office based work, it would be very challenging to keep switching between the two “profiles”, while keeping a track of which profile to use at any particular point in time.
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) – The Answer to Hybrid Work
Cloud computing technologies have been evolving rapidly ever since the pandemic wreaked havoc with world economies, supply chains and enterprise operations. Amidst all this chaos, Desktop as a Service (DaaS) has emerged as an ideal platform for hybrid work.
In this post, we will discuss the factors that make DaaS an ideal cloud technology for executing hybrid work securely, efficiently and productively.
Seamless, Round the Clock, Multi Device Access
Leading DaaS solutions like dinCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops (dinHVD) can be accessed by your employees seamlessly, regardless of whether they are at their home, office, or any other location. All you need is a decent internet connection to get going.
With a DaaS solution, your workforce has round the clock access to their assigned dinWorkspaces. These cloud desktops are hosted and streamed from one of dinCloud’s multiple, state of the art cloud data centers.
A DaaS solution eliminates the worry of the endpoint device your employees may be using. They are free to use even multiple devices for getting things done, as no data storage or processing takes place at the level of endpoint devices.
Centralization of Enterprise Data
One of the biggest challenges of hybrid work is handling data, when it is scattered across so many different devices and locations. This not only poses administrative challenges, but also entails a lot of data security as well as privacy risks.
In such a challenging scenario, a DaaS solution like dinHVD mitigates data security and privacy risks by consolidating it within highly secure, centralized data centers of the DaaS provider like dinCloud.
A centralized data means that you can do away with the headache of keeping track of the latest versions of critical documents, projects or presentations which are being worked upon by multiple teams from different functional units of the organization.
Enterprise Grade Security
Leading DaaS providers like dinCloud offer enterprise grade security that is built into the very service. dinCloud’s multi-tier security includes firewalls, encryption, intrusion prevention, malware as well as ransomware protection, and endpoint level protection.
All these multi layered security protocols are rounded off by a robust, Two Factor Authentication (2FA) mechanism. This protects your valuable and sensitive enterprise data from un-authorized access, even if an employee’s device is compromised or stolen.
Disaster Recovery (DR) Built-In
Leading DaaS providers like dinCloud have a large footprint of strategically located cloud data centers. In the event of a disruption at any one of these data centers due to any unforeseen event, your mission critical processes are shifted to another data center.
This in turn ensures that there is zero to minimal downtime, or disruption of your core enterprise processes. A robust, cloud based DR posture gives your customers and employees the confidence that business will continue as usual, despite disruptions.
We have listed some of the most compelling facets of DaaS solutions, which make this cloud technology an ideal platform for supporting a hybrid workforce. It appears that hybrid and remote work could continue, well into the coming year as well.
DaaS Solutions like dinCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops (dinHVD) give enterprises the confidence and assurance that their operations can continue un-interrupted, even in the case of disruptive events.
