TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 4, 2020 — Chris Howard, vice president of U.S. public sector at Nutanix (Nasdaq: NTNX), said that desktop-as-a-service platforms could help agencies manage security of and access to data or applications when they implement a telecommuting strategy amid the pandemic, ExecutiveBiz reported May 22.

Even if hackers attack an agency employee’s browser, DaaS offerings have the ability to erase any modifications made before a user’s next session because the attack took place in a virtual desktop interface with no way of damaging the organization as a whole, Howard wrote in a GCN guest piece published Tuesday.

He added that DaaS works to facilitate the delivery of individual or multiple apps via a browser without requiring additional software and hardware.

“As federal agencies prepare for work’s new normal, they must each identify and adopt the technologies and cultural practices that will allow them to continue operating as close to usual as possible and align with their transformation goals.”
