Today is the European Data Protection Day. A date established by the European Commission, the Council of Europe and the Data Protection authorities of the member states of the European Union to raise awareness about the importance of privacy and user data protection. At a time when technology has become an indispensable engine to guarantee the continuity of most businesses, it is worth reflecting on the suitability of the solutions we are using to work remotely from the security perspective. Desktop virtualization has emerged as the best bet for keeping computer systems, sensitive information and user data properly shielded.
In many cases, and now more than ever with the rise of remote working, security breaches originate in the workplace. An employee-owned device that is not adequately protected or a user who inadvertently opens an infected email can jeopardize the security of the entire corporate network. But only if the appropriate measures have not been taken or the best technology to prevent it has not been adopted.
The implementation of a VDI system allows all the data to be stored centrally on a server instead of being stored on each of the computers used by employees. This way it is much easier to secure them and control access. Data never leaves the company, users only view it and work with them remotely. The IT team can apply the measures they consider the most strict so that the server or servers where the data is hosted are safe.
Desktop and application virtualization solutions such as UDS Enterprise can help you maintain absolute control of corporate systems and data. They allow having centralized monitoring of computer systems and communications 24x7.
UDS Enterprise includes a key component when it comes to guaranteeing the security of all connections and that data travels safelyfrom the servers to the device from which the user views them. It is a tunneler that encrypts information from end to end. In addition, UDS Enterprise integrates with federated authentication systems, allows the installation of special certificates and the implementation of two-factor authentication.
This connection broker also offers the possibility of adopting the Zero Trust model, defining which devices are authorized to connect to the corporate virtual desktops and applications. Likewise, with UDS Enterprise IT professionals can establish the security policies that best suitthe needs of the company, set least privilege policies and, in the event of a security breach, the threat can be quickly isolated and fixed.
