To start, what is DaaS? DaaS stands for Desktop as a Service, which is a form of virtual computing that offers a complete desktop solution to employees through a hosted cloud environment. With more people working from home than ever these days, DaaS allows a safe and secure way to let your employees do remote work from anywhere. Simply put, DaaS is a “hosted desktop” where all of your applications and services run on a DaaS host’s servers, instead of your employee’s computers.
What are some of the benefits of DaaS?
Increased Device Flexibility
If you’re a business looking to offer remote work options and increased device flexibility, then DaaS may be right for you. Desktop as a Service allows flexibility in creating a quick and easy-to-use digital workspace. It allows users to log in to their virtual desktop from anywhere, through many different kinds of devices, and their desktop will look the same as when they last used it, no matter the location – the only necessity being an internet connection! Since all of your company’s data lives in a centralized, secure, and remote location, it can be constantly backed up, without the need for employees to manage back-ups on their own or worry about data existing on a computer at the office but not at home.
When you use DaaS, all of your data will be secure in your company’s data center in the cloud, protecting against data loss or device theft. Since none of the data lives on personal devices, the risk of a thief accessing any sensitive data from a stolen device is minimal. On top of that, security patches and updates are also easier to install in a DaaS environment because all of the desktops can be updated simultaneously from a remote location.
One of the major benefits of using a DaaS solution is that it can be less expensive than traditional services where you generally have to pay for a perpetual license. With Daas, you pay for only what you’re using, either through a monthly or yearly subscription model. DaaS can be used to reduce capital expenses and gain a more predictable operational expense model. DaaS can also save your company money on security, technical support, and maintenance, thanks to the fact that all sensitive data is stored in the cloud. If an employee’s device gets stolen, all the IT team has to do is change the password to that user’s cloud service.
