Desktop Virtualisation Balancing Security and Flexibility
The modern office space and serviced office has come a long way in the past few years. What started with simple hot-desking has evolved into full-blown desktop virtualisation – which has revolutionised the way office workers access company infrastructure.
According to technology writer Ryan Faas, innovations in virtualisation have meant service office users have had to strike a balance between data security and worker flexibility – particularly as smartphones and tablet PCs increase in popularity.
Writing for IT World, Mr Faas said secure, remote access to sensitive data is something a huge number of tech firms have been striving for in recent years.
“It is heartening to see vendors responding quickly and across a range of approaches to what is becoming a major issue for almost any IT department,” he concluded.
Recently, IT analyst Quocirca questioned whether office spaces of the future would even have desktop PCs in them.
