Azure Virtual Desktop Services

Enable a secure remote desktop experience from virtually anywhere

OVERVIEW

Set up Azure Virtual Desktop in minutes to enable secure remote work...

Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is a comprehensive desktop virtualization service, that runs on the cloud through Microsoft Azure. AVD delivers users a cost-effective, locked-down Windows 10/11 PC desktop experience. AVD can also enable secure access to on-premises servers and remote applications with security controls defined through your organisation’s policies.

We understand and solve your key issues

We provide services which are designed to solve our customers' key challenges.

  • Enabling a secure remote workforce

    With employees working from anywhere and on any device, security is a top concern, as it expands the attack surface and makes it harder to gain thorough network visibility. With AVD, you can configure familiar Azure security Services, benefit from a reduced attack surface due to reverse connect technology, gain granular access control and implement isolated user sessions.

  • Hardware shortages & rising costs

    With the ongoing chip shortage, many businesses simply cannot find enough devices to replace all of those required. Also, if businesses want to upgrade to Windows 11, all devices need to have a TPM 2.0 chip which are in short supply. Azure Virtual Desktop solves these challenges by moving the computing power away from the device to the Azure Cloud. Employees can also run Windows 11 through AVD, even with older hardware that lacks a TPM 2.0 chip.

  • Achieving agility without increasing costs

    Each employee within a business has a different compute requirement and typically, the only way to accommodate this is by purchasing a device that is overpowered for 95% of its use, leading to increased hardware expenditure. AVD enables intelligent compute scaling, so you can allocate & deallocate additional resources to a VM when required so you only pay for the computing power you use.
