Shoring Up Security with a Virtual Desktop

As more small businesses begin to open sensitive applications and data to employees across the company—be they mobile employees, temporary workers, or consultants—there is a growing need to easily control information access while also ensuring security and compliance requirements are met. Traditional identity management and network access control solutions were designed before the Internet and have proved unable to adapt to current business needs.

"Unified identity and service delivery" is a new approach to providing users with access to everything they’re authorized to retrieve via a bookmark entry in their Web browsers. This virtual desktop gets them productive quickly, greatly increases security, and enhances the massive investments in current infrastructure and procedures. Unifying identity across the enterprise, thereby creating "identity presence," requires a platform that allows access to appropriate resources as defined by a user’s rights and privileges.

Today’s competitive workplace demands flexible access whether an employee is at work, home, or traveling. Virtual desktops and unified identity are the new solutions favored by leading companies wanting stronger security, easier compliance, lower administration costs, and less integration complexity.
