Often times, getting to your email is the easy part. But accessing work applications such as the accounting software or other software requires a VPN connection into your network. There is an expense in installing a VPN and then on-going management and maintenance. With a hosted virtual desktop, you can login through an internet browser – whether that is at a hotel or from a home office. Once you are in your hosted virtual desktop, all your applications are available. The connection to the hosted virtual desktop is encrypted and secure. A hosted virtual desktop may be a much more economical way of gaining secure access to your company’s data and applications than a VPN. And best of all, you do not have to manage or maintain it.
