Virtual Desktop Software for Secure Remote Access

Enable your remote workers to securely access IT resources without sacrificing end-user experience and performance. Implement virtual desktops to access critical applications and data from anywhere, anytime, without compromising security.

Access Control Solution

How Virtual Desktops Enhance Secure Remote Access

Secure remote access refers to multiple security modules brought together under a single solution. You can control which users access your resources, their permission levels, and methods of authenticating their identity.

  • Centralized Management: Virtual desktops allow IT administrators to manage all user desktops from a single environment.
  • Data Isolation: With virtual desktops, sensitive data remains on secure servers, not on end-user devices.
  • Enhanced Monitoring and Logging: Virtual desktop solutions offer advanced monitoring and logging capabilities.
  • Automatic Backup and Recovery: Regular backups and recovery options ensure that data can be quickly restored.

Zero Trust Network Access

Secure access based on strict access control policies, ensuring only authorized users gain entry. V2 Cloud employs a zero trust security model, where trust is never assumed and verification is always required.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Adds an extra layer of security with biometric or device-based authentication. By requiring users to provide two or more verification factors, V2 Cloud ensures that only legitimate users can access the virtual desktops.

Single Sign-On (SSO)

Reduces password fatigue and enhances security by allowing one-time authentication per session. With SSO, users authenticate once and gain access to multiple applications without having to re-enter credentials.

What Are the Security Risks of Remote Access?

Remote access can pose significant security risks, including unauthorized access, data breaches, and malware infiltration.

  • Unauthorized Access: Malicious actors can gain unauthorized access to corporate networks.
  • Data Breaches: Data transmitted over unsecured remote connections can be intercepted, leading to data breaches.
  • Malware Infiltration: Remote access points can serve as entryways for malware.
  • Insider Threats: Insiders with malicious intent can exploit remote access to steal data or sabotage systems.
  • Lack of Endpoint Security: Remote devices, such as laptops, may lack adequate security measures.
  • Compliance Risks: Inadequate security measures can result in non-compliance, leading to legal penalties and reputational damage.

How to Choose a Secure Remote Access Solution

Selecting a secure remote access solution can be challenging. Here are the crucial factors to consider:

  • Robust Security Measures: Ensure comprehensive protection against unauthorized access and data breaches.
  • User Authentication: Implement strong authentication mechanisms to verify user identities.
  • Ease of Use: Choose a solution that balances security with user convenience.
  • Compatibility: Ensure compatibility with existing systems and infrastructure.
  • Scalability: Opt for a solution that can grow with your organization’s needs.
  • Support and Maintenance: Look for solutions with reliable customer support and regular updates.

Why Choose V2 Cloud as a Secure Remote Access Provider?

  • Multi-factor Authentication: You can enforce Multi-factor authentication for your users for added security, requiring users to provide a biometric pass such as a fingerprint, or a device token such as a mobile phone.
  • Single Sign-On (SSO): V2 Cloud integrates with your preferred SSO provider such as Azure SSO, OneLogin, Okta, Google SSO, V-KEY, or any other SAML-compatible SSO provider. Users can securely authenticate remote access sessions with multiple applications and websites by using just one set of credentials.
  • IPsec Virtual Private Networks: Employees can securely connect from remote locations to cloud resources even when using the public internet.
  • Active Directory Integration: V2 Cloud can integrate with cloud-based or on-premise Active Directory for identity and access management services.
  • Ransomware Protection: Even in the event of a ransomware attack, V2Cloud protects your resources with daily snapshots retained offline for complete ransomware protection.

A virtual desktop is similar to a normal computer desktop, but everything is on a software package and runs on a cloud server. Multiple virtual desktops can be run on a single server, which eases the collaboration between users and reduces costs. A virtual desktop solution is a way of deploying multiple virtual desktops similar to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Creating a virtual desktop can be difficult and depending on the provider you’re with, it can require IT skills and certifications. That’s different with V2 Cloud’s virtual desktop services—you can create a virtual desktop in 20 minutes. Simply create an account, build your virtual desktop in the cloud, and after 20 minutes you can start using it.

The cost of virtual desktops varies depending on user licenses and resource consumption such as CPU and RAM. Prices start at approximately $35 USD per user, which includes a bundle of computing resources, like 2 CPUs and 8 GB of RAM. These resources are pooled in the cloud desktop with a per-user licensing fee. For geographically dispersed users, dedicated virtual desktops may be necessary, precluding resource sharing.

Virtual machines or VM, are virtualized computing environments similar to physical computers. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure or VDI is a system that is using VMs to provision virtual desktops and applications. You can keep in mind that VDI > VM > Virtual Desktops. VDI is the infrastructure where your virtual machines are hosted and those virtual machines have virtual desktops.

With the right infrastructure, there is no limit to the number of virtual desktops you can create. We recommend a limit of 250 users per virtual desktop because it’s more manageable. However, virtual machines (VM) should not have more than 32 cores according to Microsoft.

Virtual desktops are notoriously safe because your data never leaves the cloud. Virtual desktop solutions are usually safer than physical desktops. Since no business data is stored on the physical machine, multiple layers of security and encryptions are built-in with cloud desktops. Multifactor authentication(MFA) and single sign-on(SSO) on a cloud PC are protecting end-users way more than mixing personal data with business data on a physical desktop.

There are many advantages to using virtual desktop software. The key aim of virtual desktops is to better manage workloads by transforming traditional computing to be more scalable, efficient, and economical. Virtual desktop software is quickly being adopted by organizations and the academic community due to its ability to offer a reduction of investment outlays and operating costs. Some benefits of virtual desktop software are:

– Simplified management
– Increase productivity
– Flexible and cost-effective
– Environmentally friendly
