Security is one of the chief concerns facing VDI deployments. In fact, it could be argued that security is the chief reason for virtual desktop infrastructure. It acts as a safety precaution against exploits that target endpoint devices, against natural disasters, theft, and beyond. Additionally, VDI allows IT to manage thousands of devices from one central location. Furthermore, with VDI, no data is stored on the endpoint itself, and yet, end users get the advantage of a full computing environment.
“Great white paper that is worth a read. Thin Client technology is still alive and well and in this age of frequent cyber attacks and security compromises, protecting one’s data is more important than ever.”
