What is an entrust Hosted Desktop?

Our flagship product, the entrust Hosted Desktop service is a cheaper and simpler alternative to owning and managing your own IT systems.

Desktop users still have the same functionality and Windows environment they are used to and the same Microsoft Office programs and specialist applications. But instead of keeping their software and data on a PC or locally based server, we deliver it to them from a secure data centre.

Users access their personal desktop through the internet (or ‘cloud’). It’s encrypted and is consequently secure but authorised users can work from anywhere with an internet connection, making them much more mobile.

Flexible, scalable and secure

Your business can stop investing in expensive hardware. You won’t need to replace your server(s) regularly; and old PCs and laptops will gain a new lease of life once their software software is stripped out and held in the cloud. Similarly, your staff can make use of their own hardware if they prefer.

We take care of the routine IT administration, support, security or maintenance. It comes as part of a fixed monthly fee per user. Upgrades and patches are all deployed automatically, and we take responsibility for Microsoft licensing, including updates to the latest versions. As a result, you save a lot of time. For example, Microsoft releases new patches at least once a month – and many companies are simply not on top of that. New users can be added or removed at immediately, either via our online portal or by calling our support desk.

When you need help, we are contactable 24/7 and will resolve problems quickly. We resolve 90% of support tickets within thirty minutes. Moreover, we guarantee 99.99% uptime.

In conclusion, you can expect great results with Hosted Desktop. Firstly, you save money & time and gain productivity. Secondly, your data security is enhanced. And finally, your workforce becomes more mobile and productive. Therefore, we support you to grow.
