USA: Gone are the days when cyberattacks were targeted solely on servers. Today, end users have emerged as the weakest link to IT security. Consequently, it has become imperative for organizations to secure their business applications running on their users’ device. As there is an uptick in cyber scams with ransomware in the forefront, Vijender Yaday, CEO and co-founder of Accops opines that Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) technology can shield the organizations from intrusion wherein critical data is stored where it’s most secure: the datacenter. VDI migrates the entire desktop environment to a datacenter, facilitating enhanced security of data and automation of desktop management, which enables users’ to access virtual desktops remotely. This is precisely where Accops comes into the picture with its expertise in developing application and desktop virtualization, thin clients and secure remote access products.

In an instance, Accops assisted a large U.S. based financial data analytics company in analyzing the spending behavior of their end users. As part of compliance, the company could not deliver financial data access to desktop/laptop PC as it becomes prone to leakage. As their development center was located outside U.S., the company needed to securely access the transaction details of millions of consumers and process them through their systems. To make the data available to their staff, while meeting stringent compliance, the company evaluated VDI solution from one of the large VDI solution provider vendor. The company also evaluated Accops and found that Accops’ solution was more integrated and provided required security controls and obtained faster response from the support team and product management to address additional specific needs of the company.
