Common Reasons for Adopting Azure Virtual Desktop

There have been significant changes in the last several years in the way organizations of all sizes serve their customers. The same applies to their internal operations. The challenges of remote work, supply chain issues and the ever-present cybersecurity threats, have led organizations to look at different technologies to help them continue to operate securely, profitably, and successfully.

One of the areas receiving considerable attention is end user computing and technologies that can address the above challenges. Specifically, Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD).

Let’s look at some of the common reasons organizations are adopting AVD.

1. Ability to Support Remote and Hybrid Workforces

As hybrid work environments continue to be the norm, organizations need to have a solution that gives them the flexibility to provide their employees with secure access to the applications, tools, and data they need to perform their work no matter where they are working from or what device they happen to be using. Azure Virtual Desktop provides the flexibility organizations are looking for to ensure employees are productive and secure wherever they might be on whatever hardware they are using as long as they have internet access of course.

2. Scalability

Organizations can easily scale their resources up and down based on their business requirements. Leveraging AVD’s central management hub simplifies the configuration of network settings, adding and removing users, enabling security, and deploying desktop applications. Savings on infrastructure, desktop management and other support costs can be realized with AVD.

3. Supply Chain Constraints

As we have all experienced in the last little while, product constraints are affecting all industries and markets. Technology has not been spared. By leveraging AVD, companies can change their computing model to the cloud. AVD is device agnostic and can work with PCs, tablets, iPads, Chromebooks, or similar devices. Even outdated or aging devices can be used to access the cloud. This allows businesses to provide employees with secure access to perform their work regardless of what device or how old the device is.

4. Security

With the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscapes and the remote and hybrid work environments that have become the norm rather than the exception, security is always top of mind with any service or solution being implemented. Fortunately, AVD has been developed with state-of-the-art security that provides businesses the ability to set up their virtual environments on a secure foundation.
