Empowering Information Security with Desktop Virtualization

Since the dawn of personal computers and distributed computing, IT has faced an uphill battle to manage, control and protect enterprise applications and associated data. Recent computing disruptors-including the consumerization of IT and bring your-own device (BYOD), flexwork where people shift work to optimal locations and times, broad mobility expectations and the advent of cloud computing-have further complicated the challenges of protecting sensitive enterprise information.

To control risk across the increasingly diverse computing landscape, organizations must centralize control of sensitive enterprise Windows applications, ensuring that only authorized and authenticated users have access. This paper describes how desktop virtualization offers IT a powerful solution for today's information security needs.
