Mobile device security is paramount in today’s IT landscape. There are plenty of ways to be sure your employees are accessing data safely away from the office, but there is one solution we recommend considering: combining mobile security efforts with virtualization technology.
Securing mobile devices is incredibly difficult. They often have privileged access to sensitive data that they connect to via unprotected network connections. Virtualization vendors are finding ways to include solutions to these problems in their products and they’re perfect for small businesses.
Microsoft has been working closely with software vendors to make it easier for businesses of all sizes to have access to virtualization services. The latest development in this effort has resulted in cheaper, simpler, and more modern solutions to the complexities of remote desktop administration.
The end of the year is usually a time when we reflect on what we’ve accomplished in the past 12 months and set goals for the upcoming year. One resolution that should be easier to cross off your list in 2017 is to bring new life to your VDI projects.
VDI, or more broadly desktop and application virtualization, is a well-established technology by now and constitutes an important pillar for delivering on the promise of a digital workplace as part of an organization’s overall digital business transformation.
