Benefits of Cloud Desktops for Financial Services

Workspot cloud desktops provide benefits to multiple stakeholders in financial services organizations. Executives, IT management and end-users alike can achieve new levels of productivity and efficiency:

  • Augment data and IP security with the full power of security capabilities available within Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.  Data resides securely in your cloud subscription.
  • Reduce IT complexity by replacing physical desktops with Workspot and eliminate continuous hardware/software upgrades and maintenance. IT can simplify and consolidate infrastructure, make better use of constrained budgets, and redeploy IT staff to more strategic projects.
  • Employees get secure access to virtual desktops, apps and data from any location, on any device. They can collaborate in real-time on large, shared data files across project teams and locations.
  • Easily accommodate global contractors with restricted and secure access to only the apps and data needed to support specific projects.
  • Instantly and easily provision desktops for new users and quickly integrate external users during expansions and M&A without the need to hire expensive, specialized IT consultants.
  • Provide your data scientists and remote developers with high-powered, evergreen workstations for faster project turnarounds, a modern sandbox for testing, and better work-life balance.
  • Protect the firm with modern disaster recovery
    • Activate standby cloud desktops with one click
    • Fail-over to cloud desktops in an alternate cloud region to ensure uptime even in the event of a cloud regional outage
