What is Windows Virtual Desktop?
Windows Virtual Desktop is a comprehensive Cloud based desktop and app virtualisation service. Virtual desktops are widely used by employees of large organisations where access to their desktop is needed from various devices, eg across both work and personal devices. Windows Virtual Desktop enables employees to not only access their desktops but also the specific applications on them via almost any browser without the need for that application to be installed any device. It’s also compatible across Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.
Virtual desktops separate your operating system, apps and data from local hardware and run them on a remote server rather than the device itself. This enables businesses to clearly separate their computer environment to the user device, lessening the risk of confidential information being left on personal devices or a potential data breach.
Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop is hosted on Microsoft Azure which is highly secure and it is a comprehensive virtualisation service built specially for Windows 10.
