Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktops (WVD) has proven to be a game changer when it comes to remote work in the COVID Era
With the sudden onset of remote working thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of employees that need access to business applications and data has jumped significantly. Businesses already working with WVD have found that they have the scope to make this switch effectively and easily.
WVD is an Azure-based service and extensive desktop and application suite that runs in the cloud. WVD enables remote team members to use either a company device or their own device to access their day-to-day files and applications, which is critical given the current circumstances, particularly with the switch to remote working being so sudden in many cases.
Benefits of Windows Virtual Desktops for Your Remote Workforce
Azure Cloud Enabled
Licensing, gateway, brokering, and diagnostics resources are offered as a service in Azure. There is no need for businesses to deploy and maintain any on-premises infrastructure. WVD is designed to encourage enterprises to embrace Azure for improved flexibility, security, business agility, analytics support, and Apps management.
The platform comes with single-sign-on and multi-factor authentication, both of which are easily enabled. It also offers role-based access depending upon the user profile, allowing organizations to choose which applications each user can access once they log on to that WVD session.
Faster load times
WVD brings fast login and load times, which helps users seamlessly switch between multiple applications. It resides with integrated Microsoft components like Office 365 and your OneDrive data in Azure to deliver fast response time and efficiencies.
Cost effective licensing
Because the WVD platform already includes Office 365 enabled, and offers the cloud-based mobile device management system Intune, the pricing is very cost-effective. Businesses do not have to deal with separate Windows Server licensing agreements.
