Desktop as a Service and Device as a Service
Offering everything needed to provide any organisation’s end user computing (EUC) requirements. Simplistically, it turns your current IT Service into a bespoke SaaS service for your organisation. We provide a fully managed and supported Windows or thin client device to your end users, with managed application deployment and full security.
There are two elements to Fordway’s DaaS service; device management, and application deployment and delivery, each of which can be purchased individually. The full service comprises both elements.
Device management comprises asset management within our secure CMDB, device warranty and maintenance management, with advance hardware replacement where this has been set up, OS patching, anti-virus and other security updates with security management plus secure web proxy for Internet access and browsing.
Application deployment and updates are provided in three ways, which can be mixed and matched according to customer requirements:
- Locally installed applications with centralised deployment, configuration and management
- Streamed applications and simple shared desktop using RDSH/Terminal Services
- Streamed complex desktops delivered through individual VDI sessions per user
Fordway DaaS can also manage Windows tablets/convertibles, Apple MacOS PCs, iOS and Android tablets, plus iOS and Android smartphones. The service allows any user to access their corporate desktop from anywhere, using their choice of client device or a corporately supplied endpoint and provides flexibility to add or subtract users in line with organisational requirements. You only pay for what you use.
