The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically redefined how and where people work. And there’s no going back; remote work is here to stay. However, not every employee needs a company issued laptop to be productive, yet those laptops can make a company’s network less secure. And the more far-flung your employees are—or if you have seasonal workers—the harder it
can be to balance productivity with cost and security. Your answer is Azure Virtual Desktop.
Power your workforce with Azure Virtual Desktop
Azure Virtual Desktop, formerly known as Windows Virtual Desktop, gives remote employees the tools they need to do their jobs by securely delivering Windows 10 or Windows 11 virtual desktops and applications to any approved device. Azure Desktop is a great way to provide a consistent and secure desktop experience for remote workers across their Windows, Mac, iOS, or Android devices. You can also use it in a wide variety of other scenarios, such as onboarding seasonal workers and temp hires, or giving employees that share desks the ability to use the same device. Across it all, you’ll be able to deliver:
- A familiar Windows environment
- Seamless integration with Office apps
- Built-in intelligent security
- Simplified deployment directly from the Azure portal
Enable secure remote work
Azure Virtual Desktop is a great way to meet the demands of a remote or changing workforce because it helps protect your business and data, while giving employees secure access to consistent working environments over a wide variety of devices. It’s fast and simple to set up and includes a wide variety of security controls.
Manage work environments cost-effectively
When you use Azure Desktop, you can enable productive work environments for employees without sacrificing control or budget. With just a few clicks, you can provide and manage custom desktop environments that run in the cloud. That means you can eliminate the hardware costs of purchasing individual laptops and the labor costs associated with customizing them.
Empower people with a great user experience
One of the beauties of Azure Desktop is that it gives people the same experience they get on a local device, only in a virtualized one. That means your users have the same Windows experience, the same Microsoft Office experience-and even the same Microsoft Teams experience.
Get started with Azure Virtual Desktop
Azure Virtual Desktop is a great solution for businesses that need to quickly, cost-effectively, and securely deploy productive working environments for employees.
It’s also easy to get started. In fact, if you’re using Microsoft 365, you already have the licenses you need.
