Securing Your Desktops with .@Amazon #WorkSpaces



Learning Objectives:
- Learn the benefits of using virtual, cloud-based Microsoft Windows desktops
- Review the security benefits DaaS provides for both IT and end-users
- Discuss best practices for migrating to virtual cloud-based desktops

End-user security is a constant challenge for IT leaders who must balance the business needs of BYOD, distributed workforce, and ready access to business resources, against protecting those same resources from hackers and malware. Amazon WorkSpaces provides a more secure environment over conventional desktop infrastructure because data and applications reside in the cloud, is encrypted during I/O, at rest, and in snapshots, and is not located on end-user devices. In this tech talk we will discuss how you can better secure your IT infrastructure, intellectual property, and sensitive information, and provide recommendations for best practices to help you protect your desktop computing devices using a managed Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution.
