Cloud Desktops

Cloud desktops simplify management and empower the mobile workforce.

When provisioning and managing desktops for enterprise users becomes too costly and time-consuming, cloud desktops offer a compelling and cost-effective alternative.

Desktop cloud solutions, also known as Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solutions, provide users with access to the same applications and resources they would access through a traditional desktop. But rather than requiring costly hardware, cloud desktops enable users to access a virtual desktop via a browser on nearly any device. To improve security, data remains securely in the data centre rather than residing on individual devices.

Cloud desktops dramatically reduce the time required from IT teams to manage desktops, enabling IT administrators to focus on strategic priorities for driving innovation. Cloud desktops also support an increasingly mobile workforce and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives by enabling mobile users to securely access all the information and tools they need to be productive. With cloud desktops, administrators can easily manage desktops on the BYOD network without needing access to users’ endpoint devices.

As one of the world’s leading desktop-as-a-service providers, Navisite offers a cloud-based desktop virtualization platform that has been built from the ground up to deliver cloud desktops and virtualization solutions for businesses in a wide range of industries.
