Do you want your team to be able to work flexibly from anywhere, gain enhanced security and alleviate any fear of losing your data?
The answer? Your PC desktop, hosted in the Cloud.
DaaS in simple terms, is your PC, hosted in the cloud. In fact, it’s pretty difficult to tell the difference between DaaS and your standard PC desktop. Why? Because all of your documents, apps and software shortcuts are in one place, just as they normally would be. So, what’s the point?
From a business point of view, having Desktop as a Service can be incredibly advantageous. With everything being stored and powered via the Cloud, your desktop becomes available anywhere in the world, on any PC, Tablet or Device. What’s more, from a Disaster Recovery point of view, it’s a no brainer! Since nothing is stored locally on your machine, you are in no danger of losing those vital documents saved to your desktop, and everything can be restored in the blink of an eye.
DaaS is just one of a whole host of Cloud Services that could help your business improve in productivity and compliance.
“It’s like having in house IT…”

Three reasons why Desktop as a Service is right for you:
Improved Security and Compliance – The problem with physical PCs is that they can be vulnerable to cyber attacks, viruses or hacking. Laptops can even be lost or stolen. DaaS solves this issue – with no important data being stored on a physical hard drive and instead being held in the cloud, there are no local files that could be corrupted, hacked or stolen. With GDPR being on the minds of most businesses, such benefits could bring your organisation a step closer towards compliance.
Enhanced Mobility – Ever left the office without that one document you needed for a crucial meeting? Or, left that USB stick with your most recent spreadsheets on the kitchen table at home? A virtual desktop eliminates these worries. Simply log out of your virtual desktop at home, and pick up where you left off, the second you reach the office, with all your documents ready and waiting. Don’t forget, you aren’t limited to laptops and PC’s – DaaS works on most devices including iPads, tablets, mobile devices and much more.
Improved Disaster Recovery – Implementing DaaS is like having a ready-made disaster recovery strategy in place, without even trying. It provides an easy way of getting employee desktops up and running quickly after any disaster. There’s even an added bonus that deployment of new software, applications, and updates only takes minutes. So, even if you wanted to set up some new software or systems following a disaster, you’ll be back on your feet in no time.
