Your employees are your company’s most critical asset.
Supporting them is one of your largest expenses.
To further complicate the issue, your associates are working 7 days a week from just about any location you can imagine. That’s great for your business. However, the combination of providing anywhere access to data and applications while securing and managing their multiple devices is making IT’s job harder than ever.
Evolve IP Desktop Services meet the diverse needs of any organization by providing a unified desktop management solution for physical and virtual desktops alike – enabling IT departments to deliver the most appropriate desktop solution for each end user while maintaining control through the cloud and improving end-user support.
An untethered “virtual” workspace
DaaS frees businesses from the endless cycle of purchasing, supporting, upgrading and ultimately replacing local PCs by providing an untethered “virtual” workspace that can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, on nearly any device, all for a predictable monthly fee. By leveraging desktop virtualization from VMware, IT managers are freed from the need to “touch” each desktop when adding or removing users or to fix problems and deliver new applications, saving staff time and keeping employees productive.
Secure point-to-site connectivity ensures authenticated access from remote locations to the Evolve IP cloud. Additionally, all data within DaaS environments is encrypted and stored in one of Evolve IP’s state-of-the-art data centers, protected behind a firewall. With built-in virus protection and the ability to remotely wipe data, Evolve IP’s Desktop Services deliver security-by-design, with the freedom to add additional security solutions including The Compliance Cloudtm which is 3rd-party audited to support compliance standards (HIPAA, PCI, HITRUST, etc.) In addition to signing a Business Associate Agreement (BAA), Evolve IP can support the need for off-site, encrypted backups eliminating risks associated with storing electronic protected health information (ePHI) on end-user devices that can be lost, stolen or otherwise compromised.
Unified Desktop Management
Utilizing Evolve IP’s Desktop Services, IT personnel can rapidly provision or decommission users without access to endpoint devices. Maintaining control through the cloud, IT can seamlessly configure, deploy and support the most appropriate solution for each end user, while employees have the ability to access their virtual desktop from any location and on any device.
Why Evolve IP?
The right Virtual Desktop Solution can help transform your business.
Virtual desktops are simple to use and increase productivity across your organization, for both IT and the end-user. Users access their virtual desktops from any location on any device and administrators can support and deploy desktops from a centralized location. Additionally, IT saves valuable time and gets employees back to work quickly because they are able to rectify issues remotely; an especially helpful feature for associates working offsite or on the road.
Users are able to access their virtual desktops on any device enabling organizations to extend their Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs from cell phones to tablets to laptops, without compromising organizational control or security. In fact, IT is able to enforce security across all users, regardless of the device they are using to access their virtual desktop. If a user’s device is ever lost or stolen, the company apps and data will be locked down and not be accessible.
Desktop services can be purchased and hosted at multiple Evolve IP availability zones. With geographically redundant data centers, you are ensured that your services will remain available regardless of conditions at your location. And for the ultimate in business continuity, DR Desktops is a service that delivers on-demand desktops in an emergency. In the event of a declaration, these desktops are taken out of standby, already configured with the corporate image, applications, and connectivity necessary to access resources on the corporate network.
As is common with other cloud-based solutions, desktop virtualization enables organizations to quickly and easily scale as needed, spinning up a new desktop or adding resources to multiple existing desktops with the click of a mouse. Evolve IP’s DaaS delivers virtualized end-users desktops and applications with the cost and complexity of maintaining an on-premise Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
Microsoft Office 365
Evolve IP is one of the only vendors in the country that is able to legally support O365 licensing in a multi-tenant cloud desktop offering. As an approved Shared Computer Activation (SCA) program provider, Evolve IP can deploy your eligible licenses to your chosen cloud infrastructure solution and can provide US-based support 24/7/365.
When using Evolve IP’s virtual desktops, each user retains his or her own instance of the desktop OS and software applications, which is actually running in a virtual machine on a server. The user then accesses his or her desktop via a variety of lower-cost devices, such as a netbook, a Chromebook, tablet, thin client, as well as a laptop.
