Being productive is key to the growth of the business, but more importantly, being secure ensures the integrity of the business. The most successful businesses marry the two – they are highly productive in a highly secure environment. Security is a 24/7 job. The threats we face never sleep. Having the right tools, deploying them correctly and monitoring them is key to securing our customers.
The rapid shift to remote working has underlined the need for company networks to be secure, safe and efficient. The initial scramble by IT professionals at the outbreak of the pandemic led to remote access solutions that were often cobbled together and not totally secure.
It’s fair to say that Microsoft Azure Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) has been a game-changer, especially since the Spring 2020 update which introduced a number of additional management features.
Azure WVD allows you to deliver a virtual desktop experience and Remote Applications for your customers to any device. It brings together Microsoft 365 and Azure to provide users with the only true multi-session Windows 10 experience.
Customers of all sizes are already actively using WVD and reaping the rewards both technically and commercially, combining the best of Azure with the best of M365 to create a productive and secure environment which can be easily managed and monitored remotely.
Starting on January 1 2021, for any new WVD customers you can save 30% of Windows Virtual Desktop computing costs in D-series and B-series virtual machines for up to 90 days when using Microsoft’s native solution and activated before March 31 2021.
Activate the promotion directly in the Azure Portal in just a few clicks.
MicroWarehouse partners availing of this opportunity are also eligible for one complimentary seat to any WVD Hands-on Digital Workshop throughout 2021 (subject to availability).
