CIOs are under increasing pressure to reduce desktop and application management costs while providing seamless and secure access to corporate resources across an array of user devices. They also realize that increased regulatory requirements coupled with a rising trend of sophisticated security threats demand new approaches to desktop delivery and management.
This white paper, presented by Symantec™ and VMware®, outlines desktop and application management challenges and ways to address them through a secure, scalable, hosted virtual desktop solution: desktop as a service (DaaS). This paper explains how service providers can deliver a truly differentiated hosted virtual desktop experience through a combination of Symantec and VMware technologies and best practices. It also discusses what drives adoption of DaaS, describes its key elements, and explains how it benefits both IT and end users.
