Supporting Remote Workers
As you find your organization needing to support remote employees for an indeterminate amount of time, consider the technologies you already own. ACTS will partner with you to evaluate your business needs and support your flexibility with the cloud.
Microsoft Azure and Windows Virtual Desktop
If you have Azure today, you have access to Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) to get started immediately. WVD allows you to increase remote employee performance with low latency from anywhere in the world. WVD works hand-in-hand with Azure AD to provide security without increasing infrastructure complexity.
Through the power of the Azure Cloud, you can virtualize both desktops and apps giving you the ability to scale your desktop demands as needed and avoid hardware limitations. You can gain access to WVD from any device that contains the WVD native client app or a WVD HTML5 web client.
With WVD you can:
- Migrate your windows server remote desktops and apps to Azure simplifying your management and deployment of virtual machines.
- Centrally manage the security of your user’s desktops with a lower IT management overhead.
- Reduce the likelihood of confidential information being left on a personal device because the compute environment is separated from user devices.
Microsoft Teams in Office 365
With 80% of corporate employee’s time spent collaborating, you want to ensure they are set up for success. Whether you already have Office 365 Teams licensing or need to take advantage of Microsoft’s 6-Month Office 365 E1 free trial license, you can get started immediately.
Teams is built with Microsoft’s enterprise-grade security and compliance including auditing, reporting, built in information protection, multi-factor authentication and a single pane of glass administration. Users can share, edit in real time and access the latest files, enabling your remote employees to work efficiently across boundaries. This allows you and your team to stay connected and get work done during impactful events using features like
- Video conferencing
- Screen sharing
- Persistent chat
- Outlook integration
Teams brings all the familiar Office 365 services (e.g. Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Power BI) together along with other custom applications.
