Evolve IP, the Industry’s Leading DaaS Provider
Purpose-Built Virtual Desktops for Your Users & Your Business
We’re willing to bet that having tricked-out cloud desktops for all of your employees is overkill. In fact, with so many applications moving to SaaS models, having a full Windows or Mac OS for each associate is no longer necessary!
There’s a better way … Evolve IP Workspaces.
Evolve IP Workspaces, a comprehensive virtual desktop /DaaS solution, delivers just the applications your users need on the devices that make the most sense for the business.
For example, you can build SaaS-only profiles for employees that only use Web applications like Office 365 and Salesforce.com. Another profile could be built around access for legacy software such as Dynamics along with SaaS applications. And for power users that still require a full Windows OS you can easily provision cloud desktop profiles.
Delivering DaaS in this way dramatically reduces costs compared to traditional virtual desktop platforms, and with our self-service tools and management portal, you’ll make your IT team more efficient than ever. Provide a tailored DaaS solution from Evolve IP and make work better for your employees and IT.
Secure Identity and Access Management
Evolve IP’s virtual desktops leverage our leading Identity and Access Management platform – which is relied on by over 200,000 users around the globe every day. This approach unifies access to all of the applications used in the business under a single identity and password and is controlled by IT.
Users only need to remember one password to access their various SaaS applications, hosted applications, and cloud desktops. IT can rest easy knowing that they can apply appropriate password strength and lockout rules across various applications. Plus, with our self-service password feature, IT can essentially eradicate helpdesk requests for password assistance.
