The Benefits of Windows Virtual Desktop

The benefits of Windows Virtual Desktop are plentiful:
- Access your desktop applications from anywhere – Once you’ve set up Windows Virtual Desktop – which takes mere minutes – you will be provided the familiarity and compatibility of Windows 10 with the new scalable multisession experience for your end-users and save costs by using the same Windows licenses. Regardless of your device type (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android or any other device with an HTML5 we b client) bring your own device (BYOD) and remote connect to your enterprise experience with Windows Virtual Desktop.
- Deploy and scale in minutes – Simplify deployment and management of your infrastructure and quickly scale based on your organization’s needs.

Along with the convenience of Windows Virtual Desktop, there’s the peace of mind to be had knowing you can trust the platform with the strength of Microsoft behind it.
