Virtual desktops were seen as a luxury, adopted only by enterprises and businesses for whom remote working was non-negotiable.

The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for the ‘work anywhere’ flexibility and virtual desktops provide that. Here are the other benefits:
1) A secure working environment
