COVID-19 ushered in a new requirement for all businesses – remote workforce. The question, “How do I keep my business running when my employees cannot be in the office?” brings on a whole new meaning in today’s world.
It used to be that Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) was used as a remote solution for users to continue working when not on site. Now it is being used as the primary way for companies to do business. IT teams have been struggling to keep up with this new demand using existing infrastructure and older versions of VDI infrastructure software.
VDI now also plays a role in security by way of Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Because virtual desktops live in a datacenter, they can prevent the need for saving documents to laptops or home computers. Your data never leaves your datacenter.
As CPP’s Infrastructure Practice Lead, I believe this is one of the top issues for customers to focus on, particularly as we begin to see a gravitation toward a hybrid work environment, where some employees may remain virtual while others return to the office. CPP’s assessment-based approach to VDI can assist you with building a robust and secure remote workforce solution. CPP offers hardware, software, and service solutions around Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, VMware Horizon, and Microsoft Remote Desktop using any hypervisor.
