Desktops in the cloud are no longer revolutionary. For a long time, these have been offered as so-called desktops by players such as Amazon AWS or Citrix. Nevertheless, it will be exciting when Microsoft takes the stage here.
Everything Is Good As Long As It Runs On Azure
The idea of the remote desktop started more than two decades ago when Citrix ported its multi-user operating system, which was actually designed for IBM. But shortly afterwards it became clear that Microsoft would no longer want to renew this license with the next update. This started with a violent crisis at Citrix ultimately and turned into very successful years of a good partnership. Almost exactly a decade later, VMware customers came up with the idea of using the virtualization function to operate several Windows desktops in parallel on a server, because the terminal server was ultimately still a server and not a real desktop operating system. The virtual desktop was born.
Microsoft Azure and the cloud in general have a strong network of security technologies and procedures that have been set up to protect the data as best as possible. Attacks on the infrastructure are warded off, access to the Azure environment is secured and customer data is protected, encrypted communication and a defense system against threats enable this security.
Microsoft Azure Protects Your Customer Data Using:
-Manage and control identities and user access by merging user identities in Azure Active Directory and enabling multi-factor authentication
-Secure transport protocols are used for data transmission and various encryption options are available for dormant data
-To avert threats, Azure offers anti-malware software for cloud services and virtual machines, attack detection, prevention of service (DoS) attacks
