Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?

What is Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is a cloud computing service and a software technology that separates the desktop environment and associated application software from the physical client device that is used to access it. IT enables small and medium businesses to deliver virtual desktops hosted on cloud to access from any device, anywhere.

We at Protected Harbor provide complete hosted desktops for applications and email securely. They’re simple to buy and easy to manage, with no software and IT maintenance.

How DaaS work?

DaaS is offered as a subscription service and is multitenant in nature. The backend virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), including the virtual machines that run desktop operating systems, is hosted on our servers. The DaaS then streams the virtual desktops to our end-user devices.

We at Protected Harbor manage the DaaS VDI deployment, as well as the maintenance, security, upgrades, data backup, and storage. And the customer manages the applications and desktop images. DaaS is a good choice for organizations that don’t want to invest in and manage their own on-premises VDI.

Why Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?

Employees expect to access their work from anywhere on any device. And companies are looking for a low-cost, simple solution to securely deliver the apps, and desktops people need to get their work done. Traditional PC environments are burdened with IT management challenges as simple as employee password resets and as difficult as updating security patches and updates that impact user productivity as well as take up valuable time for IT administrators.

While many customers are turning to virtualize applications and desktops, the perceived complexity and capital investment have industries looking to a simplified solution that works within an operational expense structure. Protected Harbor offers Desktop as a Service (Daas) solutions, and many advantages to IT by simplifying operations and delivering Windows desktops and apps securely to its workforce.
