Even just a decade back, it was difficult to envision mobile offices. It was actually a far-fetched dream for us to spend more time at our residences than in offices, which probably are located some distance. Computer science has progressed manifold. Therefore, today we can in reality spend a greater share of our time at home than the workstation and still fulfill our professional targets. With the introduction of remote desktop software, people are able to strike a healthy balance between work and home and carry on with both simultaneously.
In the recent past, leading IT companies came up with new age remote desktop solutions that enabled users to access offline PCs or virtual desktops from any part of the world. This provides them with the flexibility to carry on operations from anywhere. Such desktops use high-end technologies and allow the user complete desktop control and access. Other benefits are-
* Help in reducing security threats
The structural pattern of remote desktops uses a strong encryption, gives centralized real-time control to administrators, and has efficient data leakage security. All the information is stored within a trusted network. Any security risk that might occur from any third party intrusion is never a problem. At the same time, the administrative control over the remote user activity helps in eliminating data leakage threats.
* Prevents data leakage
Remote desktops ensure that data is not transferred beyond the corporate network. Employees have all the access to any and all corporate information. At the same time, they do not have to worry about data threats.
* Use of Tablets
Tablets are economical, simple, portable and light. Many organizations are offering their employees tablets, and employees too are getting their tablets to work. Remote desktop solutions allow users to access the laptop or workstation through a low bandwidth connection. This helps them to prevent information leakage and official security protocols.
* Puts into use the concept of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Bring Your Own Device is said to be an IT consumerization. People use their own smart phones and tablets and access the required corporate applications. With the help of remote desktop solutions, employees have the freedom to choose a device or combination of devices that suit their requirements.
Remote deskstops are not only used by IT professionals but also by various cyber savvy people. It is efficient in data and file sharing. Along with increasing productivity, the software also enables you to avoid business disruptions.
