It’s common that a company’s core systems are monolithic and not available via the public web. To achieve work-from-home capability with a variety of systems whether Windows, Linux, vendor COTS, etc., consider the following architecture patterns for desktop as a service (DaaS):

  • Encrypt and safely guarding traffic to the remote desktop and any sensitive data
  • Include default tools for managing remote employees
  • Access to the cloud desktop from remote worker/ telecommuter computers, web browsers, tablets, bring your own device
  • Enable automated backups
  • Control the identities allowed to access the remote desktop
  • Stop any data exfiltration from the remote desktop to the client machine
  • Remove admin permissions from the remote desktop user
