The publication startup.info has interviewed Félix Casado, CEO of Virtual Cable, about his vision on the role of technology as an essential engine to facilitate remote working and distance learning during the health crisis. This company has been developing UDS Enterprise for ten years and providing professional support to its clients. It is a connection broker for desktop, application virtualization, and remote access to physical and virtual machines. "Lockdown has led to a digital acceleration, it has consolidated remote working as a totally valid option to work. In many cases, it brings lots of advantages for both the company and the employee. Remote working is not a conjunctural situation. It is a structural action. It has come to stay," says Casado.
A multitude of organizations around the world had already implemented UDS Enterprise for years. Working from anywhere and using any device is just one of the many benefits this software offers. Precisely these organizations that have already been betting on this cutting-edge technology have been the ones that have adapted the fastest and most readily to the situation we are experiencing. "Those who had implemented VDI technology to reuse their older equipment, to simplify the IT management of their IT infrastructure, or to allow the mobility of their employees, only had to scale their platform or make a few small adjustments to serve all workers at the same time," explains the CEO of Virtual Cable. "That is why we think it is important to be at the forefront of new technologies and choose efficient solutions that become fundamental pillars of the IT strategy," he adds.
Since the pandemic began, Virtual Cable has supported all affected sectors to ensure their business continuity. "We have launched campaigns to provide free cloud platforms to all SMEs worldwide, offer our product free to public administrations and universities, special discounts to large corporations...," he comments.
The objective of Virtual Cable has been, is, and will be to help all organizations that need, among other things, to tackle the complexity of their IT environment with VDI, facilitate the mobility of their employees, guarantee the security of their data and IT systems and save costs in licensing and acquisition of new devices. "In the future, I see ourselves helping organizations in more countries and more sectors," states Casado. "Lockdown has made even more evident the need to implement a technology like ours, has accelerated its adoption, and has made IT departments of all companies discover that its benefits go far beyond remote working. Universities, educational centers of all kinds, public administrations, as well as other public and private entities around the world, are daily interested in the benefits of implementing UDS Enterprise. We already have more than three thousand references from more than one hundred countries. These figures show that our international expansion is on the right track and that confidence in our software knows no borders," he concludes.
