Secure Mobility and BYOD
Today’s employees need to work from anywhere—a customer location, a home office, an airport lounge—with full access to all of their apps and data with a great user experience. As personal devices flow into every organization, you also need a way to deal with the ad hoc bring-your-own device (BYOD) program that likely already exists in your environment, whether sanctioned or grass-roots. In either case, Concero Cloud Desktops makes it possible to deliver a user’s complete mobile cloud desktop on any device they choose to use—including their own personal devices—over any network while you maintain full security and control. Mobility is one of the many benefits of Cloud Desktops.
Concero Cloud Desktops enable secure productivity on any device, anywhere, by providing users with seamless, secure access to their desktops, apps and documents without having to join your corporate network. This unified solution enables the secure delivery of Windows and web apps to all type of devices, including Windows and Linux desktops, Macs, thin clients, tablets and smartphones.
IT gains a single point to manage access control and can limit actions based on both user identity and the endpoint device, providing better application security, data protection and compliance management. A seamless login process leads the user to an enterprise StoreFront to select the apps or desktops they want to use. Concero Cloud Desktops also optimizes the network traffic for the remote connection by caching video traffic to reduce re-transmitting, and by prioritizing interactive traffic like voice and video over bulk file transfers and print jobs to ensure a high-performance experience.
Able to work from anywhere with the same, consistent portable, always-available cloud desktop, employees can achieve higher productivity and job satisfaction while driving business agility and competitive advantage for the organization.
Secure Web Apps
As web browser-based apps continue to grow in popularity in the enterprise, IT needs to ensure that they remain as secure and manageable as any other type of application. In many cases, web apps have been developed for specific browsers or plug-ins that may now be outdated or pose security threats. Frequent browser updates compound the challenge, especially when multiple browsers are in use in the organization, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Edge.
By using Concero Cloud Desktop to access web apps, sensitive information is retained in the data center, not in the user’s local browser cache, eliminating the risk of loss or theft. Nothing is left behind on the end user’s device when the network connection is terminated.
Concero Cloud Desktops also reduce web app management costs. Administrators can pre-package the best web browser and the plug-ins needed for each web app. As a result, updates on the user’s device have no impact on the compatibility of the web apps they use. A consistent user experience across any device and browser can considerably reduce costly help desk calls as well.
Its the first month of a new Microsoft OS release and already there is urgency for IT to support migrations. For PC-based IT infrastructures this an arduous process. Compatibility testing with hardware and applications is time consuming and BYOD poses an additional layer of complexity.
Concero Cloud Desktops solves this two ways. First, regardless of the OS running on the end-user’s device they can securely access their Concero Cloud Desktop (desktops, applications, data, and documents) at the data center. Thus, OS upgrades on end-user devices cease to be a major concern to IT.
Second, the OS used by the Cloud Desktop itself can be easily upgraded. Concero Cloud Desktop has technology that lets applications be installed independently from the underlying OS. As a result, applications can be moved seamlessly from one OS to another. This dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of OS migrations and makes your business more secure, agile and productive.
