Hosted Desktops Provide Flexibility And Security To Your Organisation
Hosted desktops are already helping millions of businesses. From charities to financial services, estate agents, recruiters and solicitors. All manners of organisations can enjoy working from anywhere, at any time – with only an internet connection.
As well as allowing people to work from anywhere in the world, at whatever time they choose to, hosted desktop solutions also come with a wealth of benefits. However, the priority for businesses when selecting Desktop as a Service technology for their organisation is whether their information will be safe and secure. Security is paramount for the protection of their customers as well the firm itself.
As well as security, flexibility is vital to enable the business to adapt rapidly and grow with ease. So, how does a hosted desktop allow both security and flexibility for a company?
How a Hosted Desktop Provides Security
1. Data Centres
Using world-class data centres, you can be sure that your data is contained safely and have peace of mind that you have reliable, yet secure connections. For example, Desktop on Demand has all of their data centres in the UK so that you can have trust in your data’s location.
3. Antivirus Software
With a team of experts, we make sure that all of our servers have the latest firewalls and antivirus software. Furthermore, we have heightened intrusion detection to make sure that our servers remain protected at all times and there is no authorised access to your data.
2. SSL Encryptions
SSL technology makes sure that data between your web server and browsers remain safe. SSL encryptions can make sure all sensitive data is protected as it travels across the internet and reaches your employees, customers and suppliers, wherever you are in the world.
4. ISO 27001
ISO 27001 is an international standard in Information Security Management. At Desktop on Demand, our team and processes are all certified to this exacting standard so you can be sure that we are doing all we can to keep your servers secure and that you have a support team who prioritise security management.
5. Fail-safe Backup
While we are confident in our data security, we always make sure that we have a fail-safe backup system in place. Should anything happen, you can trust us to make sure your data is still accessible and always protected.
How a Hosted Desktop Provides Flexibility
1.Flexible Cash Flow
One of the benefits of a hosted desktop is its cost-efficiency. Instead of setting aside part of your budget for expensive servers, IT maintenance and unexpected repairs, you can free up your cash flow thanks to reduced IT expenditure and fixed IT costs.
3. Flexible Teams
The fact that all workers can access the same applications wherever they are, there is an increased opportunity for flexible work allocation as well as collaboration. With a hosted desktop, it is easy to share information quickly, with more effective communication, making work projects much more flexible.
2. Flexible Working
Of course, the obvious benefit for a hosted desktop solution is the fact that team members can work anywhere at any time. This makes it much easier for remote workers and organisations with multiple sites as well as operating globally.
4. Flexible Growth
Unlike having your own server and It equipment, a hosted desktop solution can grow in line with your business. This means that you can add more users and incorporate more data as you develop. The scalable solution helps you to maintain your budget and avoid having to predict your IT requirements way in advance of needing them.
5. Flexibility in Emergencies
Should your workplace suffer from an unexpected disaster such as fire, flood or other damage, your business can keep running. Regardless of any eventuality, your data will remain safe on our servers, and your team can work from home or another location for any unexpected workplace closures.
