Fusion SecureDesktop – making it easy to stay connected with the office from home
Fusion SecureDesktop solves a real problem for many organisations currently looking at implementing a work from home strategy. They want a flexible solution that allows the option of either utilising the users home or work PC. Fusion SecureDesktop is the ideal partner, not only is it easy to install and use, it also provides a secure and manageable ‘thin-kiosk’, locked down VDI experience, keeping personal and work environments totally separate from each other. Compatible with all leading industry virtualisation protocols, Fusion SecureDesktop is available with a perpetual licence for lifetime ownership.
Secure homeworking – for home or work PC
Fusion SecureDesktop provides secure remote access to corporate virtualised Windows environments, from any Windows home or work desktop PC or laptop. Users simply launch the Fusion SecureDesktop application to access their corporate environment including apps and data.
No disruption to the host operating system or applications
When Fusion SecureDesktop launches, the user is unable to access files and applications on the home or work PC. There is no possibility of anything moving from one environment to the other – and the host PC’s applications, settings and operating system are completely unaffected.
Easy and quick to deploy
Users simply need to install the Fusion SecureDesktop application, as they would any other. Once installed, it can be launched like any application – providing secure access to your corporate virtualised environment.
Built on Fusion UEM
Fusion SecureDesktop is built on – and includes – VXL Software’s proven unified endpoint management solution, Fusion UEM. Fusion UEM provides industry-leading functionality and value – and is used by organisations worldwide.
Perpetual licence – lifetime ownership
Fusion SecureDesktop comes with a perpetual licence, for lifetime ownership, rather than a ‘yet another’ monthly subscription. A perpetual licence eliminates recurring costs – other than any optional annual support agreements.
Administrators can install those corporate applications the user may require and configure Fusion SecureDesktop to enable their use.
Administrators can monitor the PC or laptop’s assets, including memory, disk space and so on.
Administrators can fully manage the user’s PC or laptop, as they would any other Fusion UEM-managed device.
Fusion SecureDesktop works by providing a secured desktop environment, in parallel to the user’s normal Windows desktop.
Enterprise configurations: standard
All elements of the PC or laptop can be configured by the administrator, including the connections to the virtual desktop infrastructure.
Monitoring and analytics
There is a full monitoring and maintenance module allowing managing of the endpoint – with proactive actions if needs arise.
Organisational unit/group management
Desktop PCs and laptops can be arranged as logical groups for easier management.
The desktop or laptop operating system is monitored to ensure all the latest updates and patches from Microsoft are present. If required, endpoints can be patched to the latest update levels.
Remote control (optional)
Remote Desktop Protocol control is provided – and can be used if enabled on the remote endpoint by the administrator.
A full device reporting module is provided, with comprehensive endpoint data.
There is no enforced device limit. Each licence of Fusion SecureDesktop includes a Fusion UEM licence for the registered endpoint.
A full-featured tasks and templates management system is provided as standard.
Flexible working from home solution
For many organisations looking at implementing a work from home strategy, they need a flexible solution that allows the option of either utilising the users home or work PC. Fusion SecureDesktop is the ideal partner, not only is it easy to install and use, it also provides a secure and manageable ‘thin-kiosk’, locked down VDI experience, keeping personal and work environments totally separate from each other.
A simple user experience
Users simply click on the Fusion SecureDesktop application icon and are launched into a secure environment, where they receive a connection from the Fusion UEM server. When Fusion SecureDesktop is active, the user is sealed off from the host PC entirely and works normally, as if in the office. Once the user logs off, she or he is returned to their computer’s operating system – with no access to corporate data or applications.
Endpoint management included
Fusion SecureDesktop is built on the power of Fusion UEM, so includes our leading endpoint management toolset. Fusion UEM enables the management and monitoring of remote devices – however, unlike fully managed devices, Fusion UEM’s additional capabilities are only available when Fusion SecureDesktop is running, providing peace of mind for the user.
