What is a Cloud Desktop?
A Workspot cloud desktop is just like a Windows 10 PC, but it’s delivered from the public cloud as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and end users can access all their apps and data from anywhere, using their device of choice. Workspot completely reinvented virtual desktops with its 100% cloud-native SaaS platform – the Enterprise Desktop Cloud – which is global, highly secure, and enterprise-proven. Combined with the global ubiquity of Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud, Workspot enables IT teams to deploy hundreds or thousands of Windows 10 cloud desktops across multiple cloud regions, anywhere on the planet – fast.
Workspot cloud desktops supercharge your business agility and competitiveness while eliminating the upfront CapEx of traditional VDI and the cumbersome hardware refreshes required for physical PCs. With SaaS cloud desktops, global enterprise IT teams no longer need to procure, set up and ship physical devices to end users, freeing them from expensive and time-consuming “keep the lights on” tasks so they can focus on more strategic projects that drive business growth.
Purpose-Built for the Global Public Cloud
Combining the Workspot Enterprise Desktop Cloud platform with the global power of Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud is transforming enterprise organizations around the world. Workspot is the only SaaS cloud desktop solution that is completely customizable to meet the unique needs of enterprise organizations, while strengthening security and bringing new levels of agility that drives business growth.
Use Cases for Cloud Desktops
Augment Zero-Trust Security policy
Trust no one – not even your virtual desktop provider! When it comes to security, ask the tough questions to ensure the principle of least privilege (POLP) is rigorously enforced. Additionally, it’s fundamental to understand the security implications of the solution architecture, and why choosing a 100% cloud-native architecture is essential for security.
Enable remote employees, contractors and partners
Enterprises rely on remote employees, offshore contractors and partners for a variety of projects. Securing intellectual property and maintaining high productivity while working remotely is a challenge for enterprises employing a global workforce. Here’s how Workspot cloud desktops support secure remote work.
Latency kills performance, and that’s why power users have never been satisfied with virtual desktops – until now. Placing cloud desktops and workstations in the cloud region closest to each user changes everything, typically mitigating latency to imperceptible levels. Outstanding cloud desktop performance keeps even the most demanding power users happy and productive, wherever they are working.
Set up call centers anywhere globally
Organizations can deploy call centers anywhere in the world and ensure secure access to data by call center employees. With Workspot, call center employees can be situated anywhere – including shared office space and home offices.
Streamline joint venture operations to improve profitability
AEC, financial services and life sciences are just a few of the industries where partnership and joint ventures are central to innovation. Cloud desktops enable project teams to easily work together, collaborating in real time to bring products to market more quickly and with higher quality. IT processes are dramatically simplified, since everyone uses the same technology and collaborates within a common data environment.
