Access Windows 10 desktop and apps from anywhere, on any device through Microsoft CloudPC.

Windows Virtual Desktop, also known as Microsoft CloudPC runs on Microsoft’s Azure platform, providing virtualised desktops and applications in the cloud. This gives the end-user the ability to work from the same desktop and applications, securely, from anywhere in the world and any device.

Your business data is completely contained within the environment and regardless of the device it is accessed from, no data will ever be on that device. Giving you the peace of mind that your team are always working within your cybersecurity policies.

Regardless of your device type (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android or any other device with an HTML5 web client) bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and remote connect to your enterprise experience with Windows Virtual Desktop. With Windows 10 multi-session, you can run multiple concurrent user interactive sessions easily with the same deployment for more cost efficiency.

Take advantage of compliance certifications

Leverage Azure security offerings such as Azure Firewall, Azure Security Centre, Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender ATP for end-to-end security.

Take advantage of Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop (CloudPC) compliance certifications, including ISO 27001, 27018 and 27701, PCI, FedRAMP High for Commercial and HIPPA.

Deliver Windows 10 desktop on any device, anywhere

Access the same desktop, securely, from anywhere in the world. Work within a contained environment through the Microsoft Azure CloudPC experience. Remove access to, or delete compromised systems at the click of a button.

Onboard and offboard team members fast, providing a remote access to company desktops and applications within Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams.

Securely store all of your company data in Azure instead of local computers

Manage compliance requirements and cybersecurity risk by keeping all of your company data safe, backed up and protected on your servers and not on employee computers.


Both platforms are great and offer different benefits. This discussion should be around what you need cloud services for. If you are already using or planning to use other Microsoft services, generally Azure will be the better choice.
One of the great things about utilising large scale cloud platforms, like Azure, is you are accessing enterprise grade technology for a fraction of the cost. Microsoft invest billions of dollars into their infrastructure, giving you access to security technology that you may not otherwise have had.
We can help you setup multi cloud backup or, if you prefer and it works out to be more suitable, cloud to on premise backup. We’ll work with you to determine the best setup for your business.
