Top 3 Security Considerations for Virtual Desktops

Is your Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) secure?

As the world has adapted to remote work in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, DaaS solutions like Amazon WorkSpaces have become the de facto operating model for companies of all sizes.  

However, if a virtual desktop solution is not properly configured and secured, it can act as a gateway for cybercriminals to access the company’s data and systems. With almost half of businesses reporting cyberattacks since the lockdown started, it is imperative that you implement best practices so that your system does not become the next target.  

Failing to properly secure your virtual desktop service can have serious consequences for your organization, including:  

  • Costly data leaks and breaches 
  • Crippling ransomware attacks 
  • Unauthorized user access
