Managing and securing computer resources in school, college and university environments can be challenging. That is why many education organizations have deployed virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI).
Here are a few of the benefits of this technology. To gain a deeper insight, please read the related articles below.
Increased endpoint and data security
- Data and applications are centrally managed and controlled in the datacenter – no data stored on student or classroom devices.
- Stronger end-point security better protects the network from malicious attacks.
- Streamlines compliance and policy governance.
- Reduces the risk of data being lost or stolen on student devices.
Improved IT manageability
- New applications can be quickly and easily deployed. Patches, updates or changes are made once centrally.
- Support workloads are reduced as IT staff no longer have to move from station to station to modify each legacy PC.
- Staff have more time to focus on strategic projects such as bringing in new technologies.
- Reduced ongoing desktop support costs due to lower support call volumes.
- Better control of software licence costs.
- Reduced power consumption.
- Reduced air-conditioning costs through lower heat emissions.
Secure access from anywhere
- Students can access their work from any computer – in the classroom or study areas.
- Enables secure access from student computers.
