Desktop as a Service?
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 the cloud to access from any device, anywhere using a remote desktop connection manager.
Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud computing concept in which consumers receive hardware and software tools from a third-party supplier through the internet. These tools are typically required for application development. The hardware and software are hosted on the PaaS provider’s own infrastructure.
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 virtual desktop cloud software applications, the perceived complexity and capital investment have industries looking for a simplified solution that works within an operational expense structure. We are Desktop as a Service providers and we do provide solutions, and many advantages to IT by simplifying operations and delivering Windows desktops and apps securely to its workforce.
Is DaaS secure?
In the past decade, DaaS has gained immense popularity. After the pandemic, most employees and businesses are working from home. And the introduction of windows virtual desktop gave a much-needed push to the companies to move into the cloud using DaaS platforms.
Nothing in life comes without risks; the popularity and growth resulted in the platform making it a target for hackers. However, in most cases, security risks are caused by basic errors on either the user or provider.
When using DaaS services, you should ensure that they use multi-factor authentication and regular patches and have dedicated cyber-security teams. In addition, you should ensure that your virtual desktop interface is secure to prevent hackers from using both attack vectors. Protected Harbor secures the remote desktop connection using 2FA, Proactive security, AOA, 24×7 support, and many more.
