While technologies such as firewalls, antivirus, access control and perimeter monitoring remain an important base, they're increasingly bypassed, as today's skilled attackers directly target applications, data and devices.

Desktop virtualization provides that additional security layer, allowing full freedom for organizations to embrace business initiatives including mobility, flexwork and BYOD, and to deploy personnel and resources wherever and whenever they're needed. At the same time, desktop virtualization complemented by secure file sharing and enterprise mobility management helps fortify information security and compliance across apps, data and devices in support of business and IT priorities.
