In an ever-evolving digital world, organizations seek solutions to ensure a seamless, secure, and efficient hybrid working experience. The recent introduction of Accops Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) promises a fully managed solution to cater to this pressing need. Designed to allow businesses to extend their infrastructure to the cloud securely, it significantly reduces operational expenditure (Opex) by 25% and support time by an impressive fourfold.
Unlike other DaaS providers, Accops delivers an enterprise-grade remote work infrastructure, integrating capabilities such as zero-trust network access (ZTNA), multi-factor authentication (MFA), productivity monitoring, endpoint compliance checks, and advanced data protection, making it a game changer in the realm of hybrid work solutions. Here’s why VPN is good, but ZTNA-based access gateway is better.
Customizable desktop offerings
Accops presents a robust catalogue of pooled and personal desktops compatible with Windows 10, Windows Server OS, or Linux OS, depending on your users’ preferences and needs. This versatility means organizations can create a tailored solution that perfectly meets the demands of their workforce.
Contextual access & data protection
Security is the prime focus of Accops DaaS, as demonstrated by the zero trust-based access and contextual policies. Access can be granted, denied, or further authenticated based on the context of requests, providing an additional layer of protection. In addition, endpoint control features safeguard your virtual environment from unauthorized access and control user activities, such as data copy/paste, downloading, screen printing, and sharing, to prevent potential data leakage.
Strengthened security with MFA
Accops enhances security with a robust multi-factor authentication (MFA) capability that supports various methods, including SMS, email, mobile app, and even biometric evidence (face and fingerprint), significantly bolstering your organization’s security posture.
Seamless integration with Azure
The DaaS solution integrates seamlessly with Azure, providing a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI) to simplify cloud management activities. The integration extends to all Azure features, including Windows 10 multi-session, FSLogix app attach, and audio-video optimization of Microsoft Teams, providing an inclusive solution for your cloud-based needs.
Cost-effective power management
Accops DaaS provides native power management options and idle timeout features, enabling organizations to optimize virtual desktop utilization based on usage patterns and user activity. This intelligent system aids in achieving cost savings by enhancing operational efficiency.
BYOD enablement & zero Capex
With Accops, organizations can enable employees to work from their preferred devices – personal laptops, desktops, or smartphones. Accops Nano, a customized, hardened Linux-based live operating system free from keyloggers or malware, can be provisioned for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) users. Furthermore, Accops offers an accurate pay-as-you-go model, ensuring enterprises get access to top-tier virtual workspaces for just a monthly subscription fee, thereby reducing capital expenditure (Capex).
Managed services & customizable security
The Accops DaaS solution goes beyond providing robust virtual desktops; it also simplifies their management. As part of its offering, Accops delivers professional services for managing the VDI environment, reducing the complexity typically associated with such systems.
Security features and policies can be customized based on the user’s role and the data’s criticality, providing granular control over access and permissions. With Accops, contextual access can be enabled to evaluate each request based on parameters like user role, the device used, geolocation, and time before granting permissions.
Flexible provisioning & cost optimization
Accops DaaS is designed for inherent cost optimization. It allows you to access private applications through an access gateway or choose a solution based on your requirements. It also offers flexible provisioning models to suit your needs, allowing you to choose the topology and design that best aligns with your IT demands. Harness the potential of DaaS to fuel business agility and scalability.
Accops DaaS is a state-of-the-art solution for organizations seeking to optimize their remote working capabilities. With its seamless integration, robust security, and cost-effective design, Accops DaaS stands out as a valuable tool for IT managers and business leaders striving to enhance operational efficiency in an evolving hybrid digital landscape.
