Securing Your Remote Workforce Through Azure Virtual Desktop

Hybrid workplaces are here to stay, and organizations are faced with new challenges surrounding securing their remote workforce. Businesses are invested in pivoting to a cloud-first approach, but how can you properly secure your environment when the workforce is dispersed, using their own devices, and connecting from unknown networks? Microsoft’s Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) allows organizations to quickly deploy managed workstations for a modern and flexible remote workforce. AVD enables organizations to control the workspace of its employees even in a BYOD environment; the organization controls the virtual desktop and employees can remain responsible for their own devices. This separation allows for a lower administrative overhead, a more secure environment, and a highly scalable solution for organizational growth. This session will focus on how your organization can leverage AVD to empower your remote workforce while maintaining control of your data and securing your cloud infrastructure.
