remote desktops

Instant virtual Windows desktops.

Are you looking for Remote Desktop Services for staff working from home? Maybe you need to provide staff using their own devices access to Microsoft Office products or you want to ensure key data files are not stored on unprotected computer laptops or other home based computers.

adsl-it can now provide cost effective access to secure remote computing using virtual desktop technology to data for staff working from home or the office. This system is particularly useful where staff don’t have access to equipment provided by their employer and have to rely on privately owned and possibly shared computers.

Using this solution you can get access to up to date Microsoft Office products and your data from any location with a reliable internet feed. Get the same desktop experience whether working from the office or home. Will work with most Windows and Macintosh computers.

Remote Desktop Services (RDS) is one of the components of Microsoft Windows that allow a user to take control of a remote computer or virtual machine over a network connection. RDS is Microsoft’s implementation of thin client architecture, where Windows software, and the entire desktop of the computer running RDS, are made accessible to any remote client machine that supports Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).

User interfaces are displayed from the server and overlaid onto the client computer system and input from the client system is transmitted to the server based desktop – where software execution takes place. All data remains safely in the cloud platform.

Macintosh users can download the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection client from the app store and access the virtual desktop. Also available for Android, iPadOS and iOS.

We can provide virtual private network connections for staff working whilst travelling. Our solution is compatible with Microsoft 365 subscriptions and can be used with various data stores if you prefer to keep your data elsewhere.
