Leading VDI solution helps organizations reduce risks associated with
BYOD, multi-level security and disaster recovery
BYOD – Virtual Bridges locks down “bring your own device” issues with
granular controls that ensure only authorized users can access
specific content, and policies that can be set to control exactly
what, if any, peripheral devices a user is allowed to connect to
virtual desktops. The solution also removes malicious software and can
track any action occurring on the network via an unauthorized device,
even without access to the actual device.
Multi-level security – Virtual Bridges provides multi-level security
segregation that enables IT to provision multiple separate, physical
desktops for a user within the same client desktop environment. Each
desktop has different policies and communicates with separate physical
networks, but all three implementations exist within a single
infrastructure. This avoids the difficult-to-manage silos of
applications that are created using other methods. Virtual Bridges
also enables centralized management, avoiding the need for redundant
infrastructure to ensure physical separation.
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery – Virtual Bridges desktop
virtualization solves business continuity issues with a unique
infrastructure design that includes: stateless servers, single-volume
backup and restore, and high availability within distributed clusters.
Windows XP End of Life – Research shows that approximately 45 percent
of PCs are still running Windows XP and that 75 percent of that
hardware is not upgradable to Windows 7 and beyond. However as of
April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide support or security
patches for the operating system, posing potential
risks for businesses that plan to stick with XP beyond that date.
Virtual Bridges makes it easy for organizations to stay safe and
compliant by easing the migration from existing desktop environments
to more modern operating systems. Virtual Bridges LEAF technology also
provides businesses with the opportunity to repurpose older desktop
equipment to alleviate the expense of replacing hundreds or even
thousands of desktops.
