what is DaaS?
Many applications are rooted to your desktop or laptop device. These devices are recognised as primary security vulnerability points in an organization. A user can fall victim to malware from an email or from an unpatched desktop software vulnerability. Or one of your employees could have their device is stolen, with all your company data it was holding. The security of desktops and laptops through, maintenance of the latest patches, software releases, antivirus, along with a multitude of other needs can be full-time job.
Today, it is now possible to access applications with your device simply acting as a terminal, avoiding such risks and reducing workload.
One option is for your company to use a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) approach, where your employees access their files at any time and from any device. This is a very secure solution as no actual data leaves your data centre, nor is it stored on the local device. However, it is often complex and expensive to manage, requiring significant IT infrastructure and people resource.
The other option is Desktop as a Service (DaaS). This is a cloud service, providing virtual desktops to your employees over the Internet, licensed with a per-user subscription. Whilst it is a similar service to VDI, DaaS is less complex and faster to implement than VDI, more scalable than VDI and more cost effective.
