Q Desktop takes your standard network access and transforms it into a convenient, secure, and affordable virtual experience.
The past year transformed how we use technology for work, and it also changed how many businesses approach data security. When hordes of employees gathered up their office supplies, went home, and started using their personal networks to do work, companies faced new security concerns they hadn’t considered previously. Our customers, however, didn’t have to worry about security—they had Q Desktop to keep their data safe.
Accessing a remote desktop as an end-user appears no different than accessing a physical desktop. You log into your computer, access web browsers, software, and stored files, and do your job as usual. However, even though a remote desktop looks the same as a physical desktop, there’s one key difference between the two: When you access a remote desktop, you’re not actually running any programs or saving files on your device. What you see is a simulation of what’s happening in an entirely different location.
Secure remote desktops may sound like something out of a science fiction movie, but they’re actually an incredibly effective method for secure data storage. When your employees access your network during a remote desktop session, they use a secure, encrypted connection. Additionally, even though employees use and save data, none of that data sits on their devices. Instead, data lives on secure servers. If your employee loses their work laptop, you don’t have to worry about losing information.
If you’ve heard of a virtual private network (VPN), you might think it’s the same as a remote desktop. However, desktop as a service (DaaS) and VPN service providers offer different things. At Virtual-Q, we offer DaaS because it’s a more flexible remote work solution than VPN. Whereas VPNs use substantial bandwidth to provide users with a secure network connection, Q Desktop uses less bandwidth while providing faster and stronger processing capacity.
We can tell you how fast, convenient, and secure Q Desktop is, but it’s better to see it firsthand. Get in touch to request a live demo today.
Our secure remote desktop offers many benefits, including:
- Affordability: Think about how much you spend each month on IT. In addition to paying for the electricity needed to power your hardware, you may spend thousands of dollars one month to upgrade your outdated desktops. If you house an on-premises server room, you pay to maintain your servers, cool the room, and keep it secure. What if you could trade your inconsistent expenditures for an affordable flat monthly fee? As a Virtual-Q DaaS partner, you get faster processing times, a secure connection, storage capacity in an off-premises data center, and a bigger return on investment for a predictable monthly service fee.
- Flexibility: When businesses sent their employees home during the pandemic, IT departments around the country had to work overtime to get their remote capabilities up and running. Even if a company managed to switch its business operations to a remote model, it often experienced lower productivity and internet connection issues. Our Q Desktop customers didn’t deal with any problems—they went home and logged in to their remote desktop connection just like they did in the office.
- Convenience: Did your employee leave their work laptop at the office before a work-from-home day? For most businesses, that employee would have to drive to the office and pick up their computer. With Q Desktop, employees can use any device, such as a personal Windows or Linux computer, an Apple device, or a smartphone, to continue working from their remote session. Plus, they can pick up right where they left off the day before. Q Desktop doesn’t close your applications when you log out, even if you log back in from a different device.
- Safety: At Virtual-Q, we back up users’ data every day to ensure nothing gets lost. Additionally, we monitor your connection while you work and immediately address potential security issues. We securely store your data across servers located at our 250+ data centers around the nation, so you never have to worry about losing your private information.
Give your IT department the time they need to tackle important issues and leave the day-to-day network management tasks to Virtual-Q.
