Things to know
What is a Managed Desktop Service?
A managed desktop service typically involves the management and support of desktop computers and applications by an external service provider. This can include provisioning, maintaining and monitoring hardware and software, accessing remote desktop environments, managing security settings and supporting users.
Specifically, a managed desktop service may include the following tasks:
- Provision and installation of hardware and software
- Hardware and software maintenance and support
- Monitoring and security
- Remote desktop environments
- Reporting and analysis
- Backup & Recovery
How secure are my data and applications in a managed desktop service?
The security of data and applications in a managed desktop service depends on a number of factors, such as the service provider’s security measures, the infrastructure and the technologies used. A good managed desktop service should have multiple protections implemented to ensure data and application security.
Our protective measures are:
- Encryption of data during transmission and storage
- Firewall and network security
- Backup and restore data
- Regular checks of the safety
- Access control and authentication
- Compliance with applicable laws and regulations: We regularly update and adapt our security procedures to ensure that we are up to date with the latest technology and threats.
What are the benefits of a Managed Desktop Service?
Cost savings: A managed desktop service can reduce costs by reducing the need for internal IT staff and lowering hardware and software acquisition costs.
Increased productivity: The availability of up-to-date hardware and software, as well as user support for technical problems, can increase employee productivity.
Increase security: A managed desktop service can increase the security of data and applications by implementing security measures to reduce the risk of data loss or security breaches.
Flexibility: A managed desktop service enables companies to quickly adapt their IT environment to changing business requirements, for example by providing remote desktop environments.
Can I use existing hardware and software with Desktop Service or do I have to buy new?
It is usually possible to use existing hardware and software as long as it meets our minimum requirements. However, it is important to ensure that existing devices and applications are secure and supported. Therefore, at the beginning of the cooperation, the existing hardware and software are checked and, if necessary, updated before we integrate them into the managed service.
How are security threats detected and handled in Managed Desktop Service?
We detect security threats in various ways and deal with them efficiently and quickly. Some of the main methods are:
Monitoring and detection: We constantly monitor the network for anomalies and suspicious activity. Tools such as Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) can also be used for this purpose.
Patches and updates: We ensure that all systems and applications are regularly kept up to date by applying security-relevant patches and updates.
Backup and recovery: By regularly backing up data, we ensure that a quick recovery is possible in the event of a security breach or data loss.
Access control and authentication: We implement access control and authentication to ensure that only authorized people can access the data and applications.
Employee training: We provide training for employees to teach them how to protect themselves from security threats, such as using strong passwords and reporting suspicious emails.
Compliance with applicable laws and regulations: We ensure that security measures comply with applicable laws and regulations.
What is Remote Desktop Service (RDS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and how do they differ?
RDS (Remote Desktop Services) and VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) are two different technologies for providing remote desktops.
RDS allows multiple users to work on a single physical or virtual server. It provides a scalable and cost-effective solution for enterprises to deploy desktops and applications. Users access a shared desktop running on a server over the network. Each user has their own session, which is separate from other users. The desktop environment is deployed on the server and the user accesses it via a remote desktop client.
VDI, on the other hand, is a technology where each user has their own virtual machine on a server or in the cloud. The desktop environment runs in an isolated virtual machine that is exclusive to the user. VDI provides a more flexible solution for organizations that want to deliver a personalized and dedicated desktop environment to their users.
The main difference between RDS and VDI is that RDS lets multiple users work on a shared server, while VDI gives each user their own virtual machine. RDS is typically more cost-effective and easier to implement, while VDI can be more flexible and secure because each user has a dedicated and isolated desktop environment.
