Secure Corporate Data—Adopt Strict Mobile Security Controls Through Application and Desktop Delivery

VDI offers affordable, streamlined methods to protect against malicious users and malware by restricting data access from network-connected mobile devices

Information security is a key responsibility for any corporate organization's IT department. However, the mobile-enabled "bring your own device to work" (BYOD) environment can cause security problems for IT teams when data is stored on unsecured mobile devices. As a result, certain companies are implementing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions to address mobile security in the workplace. In the VDI approach, corporate information is stored on a central server or in the cloud instead of on the employee's device. Client devices in the VDI network don't directly store data on the phone or tablet; rather, the employee works with virtualization images over a secure connection. Therefore, the information never actually leaves the centralized storage environment even as it is accessible to mobile devices connected to the remote network.

Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) centralizes and protects sensitive corporate data using SSL encryption. Moreover, IT administrators can restrict access to sensitive material based on user, group, MAC address, IP address, and incoming gateway. With more granular privilege settings, users are only authorized to access certain levels of data. Finally, IT administrators can add another layer of security with the option for two-factor authentication. Parallels RAS offers an excellent solution to secure corporate data from malicious activity and data leakage.
