Empowering Remote Workforces with the Help of Virtual Desktops

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Successfully empowering a remote workforce is more important than ever. Today’s remote employee requires the same performance, access and security as they would working out of the corporate office. Traditional methods of supporting remote employees using local desktop operating systems, applications and VPN connectivity leads to inconsistent and inefficient computing experiences. Let’s learn how Anunta’s virtual desktops can provide a better remote workforce computing experience.
Better Security
Considering all the high-profile cybersecurity incidents of late, it’s no wonder businesses are constantly on the lookout for the most secure technologies to protect applications and data from bad actors. Anunta Tech powered virtual desktops are built on a cloud infrastructure that was engineered with security as a top priority. Because the virtual desktop and all applications/data are hosted within an industry-best cloud infrastructure such as Azure or AWS or Horizon, virtual desktop users can be sure that their data is protected regardless of where a remote employee is working from.
Additionally, businesses that must adhere to strict regulatory standards will be happy to know that Anunta’s cloud desktops are fully PCI, HIPAA and SOC2 compliant. This fact eliminates any hurdles that may have gotten in the way of some businesses or healthcare organizations migrating to virtual desktops. Regardless of what compliance requirements your market vertical must observe, Anunta raises the bar when it comes to data security.
Improved Network Performance
Nothing is more frustrating than trying to work in an application that’s exceptionally slow. For remote workforces, this is unfortunately more common that it needs to be. The primary reason is because remote user network data flows are often poorly optimized. This creates added latency to the application, negatively impacting the end-user experience. Forcing users through VPN tunnels is the most common reason for poor remote workforce network latency. While secure, VPN tunnels often force all traffic into the corporate network prior to redirecting it to the application or database server the end user is attempting to access. This creates suboptimal network paths, increasing network latency.
Anunta’s Cloud Desktops largely eliminate the need for remote access VPN’s. Not only does this simplify remote workforce access to apps and data, but it also eliminates unnecessary latency due to VPN tunnel hairpins.
Delivering a consistent desktop experience
Even during the 2020 pandemic, many businesses allowed employees to operate in a hybrid workplace environment. This means that employees may work inside the corporate office one day – and out of their home the next. Being able to deliver a consistent desktop experience in both environments greatly enhances an employee’s ability to perform their work duties. As such, a platform that virtualizes the desktop experience both in and out of the office is an increasingly important feature to have.
The beauty of Anunta’s Cloud Desktops is that it performs identically no matter where a user resides. Thus, end users do not have to modify their work processes or habits as they shift between in-office or work-from-home settings.
Flexible access
When you ask remote workforces what their top needs are from a technology perspective, flexible access to apps and data is always at the top of their list. Not only do Anunta’s virtual desktops allow users to connect from any location – they also let the users connect to virtual desktops using a wide range of endpoint devices. This includes support for Windows PC’s, Macs, Chromebooks and even Apple iOS and Android smart devices.
Remote workforce technologies — part of a business’s strategic IT plan
The 2020 pandemic played a major factor in advancing an IT department’s need to improve access, security and performance of business applications. But even as some business leaders plan to eventually bring employees back into the corporate office, understand that the need for remote workforce technologies have become a critical part of a business’s overall business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) plan. The future of business will demand that employees be able to access apps, services and other digital resources in a safe and efficient manner no matter where they reside. That’s why it’s so important to properly plan and architect for this level of remote workforce flexibility in 2021 and beyond.
