While most businesses had some sort of remote-work capabilities before the crisis, few were prepared for all of their staff to work remotely at the same time.

In the crush of events, most businesses made ad hoc decisions with respect to delivering the tools and services their remote workers needed. This has strained existing infrastructure never designed or scaled to handle a fully remote workforce and introduced security vulnerabilities. Moreover, as IT infrastructure has become overloaded, it has imposed continuity of operations challenges to almost every business.

As retrenchment turns to recovery in the coming weeks, it’s a perfect time to re-evaluate how you deliver IT to your remote workforce. It is now clear the recovery process may take months; it is realistic to expect to support a large number of remote workers for a significant period of time. So what’s the next step?

Secure Your Remote Workforce with Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD)

Withum Recommendation

As recovery becomes more and more a part of business planning, re-evaluate how your remote-worker infrastructure is performing. If you are already using Office 365 or Azure, WVD is a perfect tool to significantly enhance the security and performance of your remote IT infrastructure.

  • Securely control the applications and data your staff use to work from home.
  • Provides the familiar Windows 10 interface to your users.
  • Fast and reliable; your users can now log into WVD and have their profile data instantly available to them (no more waiting for profile data to be loaded to the local machine to run a virtual desktop).

Potential for cost savings using Windows 10 Multi-Session. This allows you to support multiple concurrent interactive sessions.
