Shared Desktops | Hotdesking
With the rise of hybrid workforces, shared desktop environments are becoming increasingly popular.
This brings IT challenges around device management and security, as well as ensuring that each employee has the correct desktop image when they log in.
Reduce the complexity of shared desktops, with a consistent UX for each employee on any endpoint.
How does ThinScale simplify shared desktops?
ThinScale enables IT teams to deliver personalized workspaces to any on-premises device based on the user’s credentials.
Workspaces travel with the user, not the device. This means employees can have their personalized desktop image on any device.
ThinScale’s encrypted data storage and other data loss prevention features eliminate risk of cross-contamination on the same device.
IT teams only need to assign a secure workspace profile to a user’s authentication credentials. ThinScale takes care of the delivery.
Reduce hardware expenditure by converting existing devices into thin clients, suitable for delivering shared desktops.
Frequently asked questions
Learn more about how we simplify shared desktops
We have a hybrid workforce and want to ensure are our employees connecting securely to our VDI / DaaS on shared machines, can ThinScale do this?
Yes, ThinScale is designed to do exactly this. The secure environment is attached to the user credentials, so when the end-user logs onto the corporate shared desktop, that end-user’s bespoke secure environment is retrieved and presented. Secure environments can securely present anything from VDI / DaaS access to legacy applications depending on IT policy.
Yes, so long as the device they are using while working from home is secured with ThinScale then the profile attached to their credentials will work the same way as on premises. The user will experience no change in their workspace, and the workspace will be just as secure.
We have employees that work for a number of our customers, each with different requirements, applications, and security expectations. How can ThinScale help with this?
Using ThinScale’s user-based profile assignment, an employee can have multiple logins and credentials depending on the customer they are working with. In the same way that there is complete separation between employees on a shared desktop, there is complete separation between specific customer environments on a single device.
