Keep your data safe
Give your workers freedom
The utilisation of the cloud enables the sharing of resources across geographical regions and promotes innovation.
Organisations are moving towards Smarter Working, the technology component of which is to enable a digital workplace that is mobile and accessible, enabling collaboration, document sharing and communication.
Remote working solutions were rapidly implemented because of Covid, initially thought to be temporary, but now working from home principles are included into long term IT strategy.
There is a need to implement more tailored and secure solutions that allow users to access their applications from any device, anywhere but through a more robust way both technically and contractually.
Hybrid cloud along with hybrid working is forecast to become the norm. Data, and the workforce accessing that data, will not be in one location. Data will be held in private or public clouds depending on its sensitivity/confidentially and users will need access to it through a seamless interface from any location.
Traditional desktops and laptops are costly, not easy to manage and pose security challenges. The management and support of a large number of desktop and laptop workstations with locally installed software is time consuming and expensive. Bring your own device (BYOD) policies, popular over recent years, introduced many compatibility problems for support teams.
Security is also a concern. In 2018 alone, there were multiple reports of data breaches from laptops that were stolen or lost. According to a Forbes article, “Nearly 41% of all data breach events from 2005 through 2015 were caused by lost devices.”
Organisations are increasingly turning to Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solutions to satisfy digital workspace needs. DaaS is provided by a third-party provider and eliminates the need to own and manage infrastructure.
DaaS allows control of the desktop through the cloud
The Millennia DaaS provides a standardised, secure desktop which can be accessed from any device anywhere.
Greater flexibility users work from anywhere, on any device and collaborate more easily with co-workers, partners and suppliers.

Bring your own Device can be enabled as all the data is held in the cloud and safely isolated from the users device
Consume the cloud through DaaS without having to learn new technology terminologies. Millennia multi cloud means that users are not locked into one public cloud provider
