The past year has seen more of us than ever make the switch to remote working. With businesses asked to send employees to work from home, the Covid 19 pandemic served as an accelerator of digital transformation, driving change and forcing us all to adapt to new ways of working. And while some companies were well equipped for the changes, others struggled to make the shift, discovering that they were further behind the technology curve than they thought.
But remote working doesn’t need to be hard work. Virtual desktops or hosted desktop solutions are a great way to achieve both continuity and compliance and can help your teams to stay productive, wherever they’re working.
A virtual desktop is essentially a preconfigured image of a company’s applications and operating systems which users access remotely, over the internet. This means that they can work in exactly the same way as they would in the office, from any location and on any device. Access rights and security will mirror that of your on-premise working environment, and users can collaborate and work in their normal way. You can control every aspect of your information security, no matter what device your staff are logging on from, making BYOD policies easy to maintain and guaranteeing security and compliance. With a secure, stable and standardised workstation for every employee, instant remote working capabilities keep your teams securely connected to critical resources around the clock.
Teledata’s virtual desktop solution - CloudDesks - is an ultra secure and scalable remote desktop platform that’s delivered from your own bespoke private cloud environment. That means no shared hardware or resource - so no chance of over-contention between multiple customers on the same shared platform. With automatic failover in the event of any hardware issue, CloudDesks guarantees anytime access. This not only improves your day to day efficiencies, but it also delivers instant disaster recovery and business continuity for your key workers, providing you with peace of mind across the board.
