PROTECTED
Desktop-as-a-Service

Manage multiple workspaces securely and with ease

Empower your employees to access the tools they need, when they need them, where they need them

As your organisation transitions to the Workplace of the Future, it’s important to find the right solution to enable a more cohesive and integrated digital workplace. For many companies today, that means a cloud-based virtual desktop (VD) solution.

But when it comes to the needs of government and Critical National Industry organisations, you can’t pick just anything. You need the ability to deliver virtual desktops and workspaces as needs change, with as little setup time and onboarding as possible. Your cyber security requirements also far exceed anyone else’s, and you need your data securely hosted on Australian soil.  

With AUCloud’s PROTECTED Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), you get all of that and more.

What’s the difference between virtual desktop infrastructure and Desktop-as-a-Service?

Virtual Desktop Infrastruture (VDI) solutions enable organisations to remotely host desktop operating systems on endpoint devices from a centralised server, conferring security and control.

DaaS takes the VDI model and operates the solution from cloud infrastructure. These deployments can therefore take advantage of the cost, scalability and agility advantages of cloud-based services.

One of the main blockers for organisations wishing to migrate from costly, high maintenance VDI solutions to a DaaS offering is concern about potential security risks. AUCloud addresses this by hosting DaaS in our highly secure, sovereign cloud environment that meets, in fact exceeds, the security requirements of the Government’s ISM.
