Microsoft Azure, Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform offers tons of innovative cloud services, including compute, analytics, storage and networking, and tools that support all industries. One of the amazing features of Microsoft Azure is Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD), the desktop and app virtualization service that runs on the cloud.
Several companies have chosen to switch to remote or hybrid remote work and started to use Windows Virtual Desktop. Microsoft Azure’s service offers employees the best virtualized experience, providing secure access to Windows 10 desktop and corporate applications from anywhere, on any device. Moreover, it provides the same experience as a local desktop or laptop - whether your employees are managing their inbox with Outlook, sharing files on OneDrive or collaborating with colleagues on Microsoft Teams meetings. All users have the same productivity experience on a locally hosted desktop and the ability to roam from device to device. Windows Virtual Desktop is not only practical but lowers your cost too by pooling multi-session resources and reduces the number for Azure Virtual Machines in the environment, also reduces management overhead by moving all your virtual desktop infrastructure into a managed service in the cloud.
Windows Virtual Desktop is a fast and more importantly secure way to transfer employees to remote work. It stores securely all your employee and company data in Azure instead of local desktops, and leverages Azure security offering such as Azure Firewall, Azure Security Center, Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender ATP for end to end security from the endpoint to the applications. Windows Virtual Desktop uses conditional access to manage risks before you grant users access to your WVD environment, setup Multi-factor authentication for secure login, and protect your Azure infrastructure by enabling role-based access control (RBAC) and detect threats using Azure Security Center.
