Desktop as a service, or DaaS, is an emerging cloud offering that allows users to access their applications and network resources from anywhere and on any device. It is a subscription-based service and can be accessed either directly via a web browser on the internet or by using a downloaded application. One can utilize a desktop as a service from any device ranging from a personal computer, laptop, mobile phone, iPad, etc. Therefore, it provides excellent flexibility and freedom to the end users and aids remote work. Employees are no longer bound to a single corporate-issued device, and can securely conduct business from anywhere and on any device. DaaS is a major shift in traditional computing as it allows employees to securely conduct business with the utmost flexibility. Employees benefit from working on a device that they are comfortable with and companies gain the advantage of not having to purchase and maintain expensive hardware. With a predictable pay-as-a-go subscription model, DaaS makes it easy to scale up or down on-demand.

Why DaaS?

Employees expect to access their work from anywhere on any device. And companies are looking for a low-cost, simple solution to securely deliver the apps and desktops people need to get their work done. Traditional PC environments are burdened with IT management challenges ranging from simple employee password resets to complex data security patches and updates.

Top Benefits of DaaS

  • DaaS has flexibility – Employees, seasonal workers, and contractors can securely access their applications, remote desktops, and sensitive data from anywhere on cost-effective devices. This helps people stay productive no matter where they work, and makes it easy for IT to support Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs.
  • DaaS Security – DaaS provides a secure access point for users and simplifies management. With access to applications and desktops in the cloud, data is securely stored and protected against data loss or device theft.
  • Cost savings – With DaaS, you pay for only what you use through monthly or yearly subscription models. In addition, DaaS can be used to reduce capital expenses and gain a more predictable operational expense model.
  • Business continuity – DaaS can be a simple way to support disaster recovery and business continuity plans. Organizations can quickly enable secure remote access to apps and desktops, which allows the workforce to stay up and running in the event of a natural disaster, pandemic, or another unforeseen event. Users can be added quickly, and the organization pays only for its uses.
  • Scalability – DaaS platforms must offer easy scalability to all their clients. So that if there is a need to scale up or cut down on resources, it can be done quickly and cost-effectively.
