Achieve BYOD security with a Desktop-as-a-Service solution.

The Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trend is creating significant challenges for IT organizations that must figure out how best to provide support and set policies while ensuring BYOD security.

Mobile-Device security was easier in the past when IT provisioned, installed, updated and managed all individual devices. IT could easily choose apps and operating systems and set content controls to avoid security issues. If there was an issue with a corporate-owned device, it could simply be wiped clean. In today’s BYOD climate, with mobile security now needed on employee-owned devices, the same action would not only wipe out corporate data on a device but all of the employee’s non-work related apps, information and personal photos and videos as well.

As your workforce becomes more mobile, your IT team needs an easier way to ensure BYOD security while providing access from any location at any time to the tools, data and resources needed to ensure productivity and performance. Fortunately, Navisite’s Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offerings provide a simple solution.

Navisite’s solution for BYOD security.

Navisite’s cloud-based virtual desktop solutions provide a DaaS model that addresses the challenges of desktop administration and management as well as BYOD security. With a cloud-hosted desktop solution, all the data stays in the data centre where it can be protected by physical and logical BYOD and cloud security controls. If a mobile device is lost or an employee leaves the company, access to the desktop is simply disabled. Navisite’s DaaS solutions allow employees to have the control over which device they want to work on while giving IT control over corporate data, information and applications. DaaS provides a flexible, scalable and cost-effective way for IT organizations to address the demands of BYOD security head-on.
