While desktop as a service (DaaS) continues to see adoption growth, there is still a lot of uncertainty around this emerging technology. Which myths are true and which might be needlessly holding you back?
We looked at seven of the most common myths about DaaS to help you untangle the truth and better understand this solution.
With the increasing rate and severity of cyberattacks and data breaches, security is naturally top of mind for anyone considering making the move to a cloud-based service. DaaS is a cloud solution that offers benefits that can help organizations increase security, such as better protecting data.
When employees are working within a virtual desktop environment, data is stored in a central location (such as a secure data center), never on a vulnerable (and possibly mobile) endpoint. This helps protect sensitive data and corporate IP from walking out the door or from being compromised by a lost or stolen device.
This centralized approach also applies to application management, which can make it quicker and easier for IT teams to push out critical patches and updates. Instead of touching every device, the update is pushed to a Golden Image and deployed to all virtual desktops.
Service providers are inherently experts in their respective fields, and working with a DaaS provider means there are dedicated professionals on staff that are responsible for security 24/7. Additionally, service providers meet the security requirements of a range of companies, resulting in a robust security and the issue constantly being top of mind.
To quell any fears you may have regarding cloud security, ensure you select a service provider that gives you confidence and is able to help maintain your company’s security posture to the desktop.
Security is just one concern. Other myths center on user adoption, IT integration, performance, compliance, cost and more. Don’t let misinformation hold you back from exploring a potential solution. Learn the truth behind desktop as a service by downloading The Truth Behind 7 Common DaaS Myths.
