Windows PC in the Cloud

Windows 365 is now available, providing a full “cloud PC” solution.

How can this fit into my organisation? Well, for example, you may have staff who use their own devices in your business (BYOD).  In this scenario the question of “how will our business data be kept secure” will be raised.

  • Does the user have anti-virus?
  • Is their personal drive encrypted?
  • Is there a risk the business data could be captured in their personal backup?
  • Could data be accidentally or maliciously transferred elsewhere?
  • Is their device powerful enough to run business applications?

Windows 365 provides the solution.

With Windows 365 users can click an icon on their desktop and be connected to a PC in the Microsoft Cloud.  This is a fully functional Windows PC but leaves no data or footprint on the users device.  This resolves a wide range of security concerns and ensures staff have a device powerful enough to run their daily tasks.

This is similar to Citrix / Remote Desktop.  This provides the solution for staff working on their own devices and need access to company resources, such as business applications (standard and custom), access to shared drives.  This is perfect for standard office users, utilising tools such as Outlook, Adobe Acrobat, SharePoint, OneDrive.  This means no company data is stored on the personal device and the performance of their own device is irrelevant, providing the user has a stable internet connection this will work.
