The desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) method for managing IT (Information Technology) is finally gaining significant traction. A report reveals the rise of remote work coupled with increased consumption of cloud services will accelerate the DaaS transition. Increased awareness of the need to better secure data in a centrally managed IT environment has also become a significant factor.
Organizations can save costs and reduce attack surfaces
DaaS is dependent on virtualization technologies designed to deliver a desktop experience remotely. If a company transitions to DaaS, there is an opportunity to reduce the total cost of IT as the management of application environments becomes more centralized.
Companies are still aware that cybercriminals are targeting endpoints. A switch to DaaS enables a company to reduce the overall size of the attack surface that needs to be defended.
Today there is no shortage of DaaS options to choose from in the cloud, so the total cost of setting up a DaaS environment has been reduced. It may be a while before traditional endpoints disappear entirely but given the current economic climate and growing concerns over security, more organizations are reconsidering all their options.
