WaaS - Workspace as a Service
Workspace-as-a-Service, or WaaS, is a form of desktop virtualization that companies utilize to provide their employees with access to business applications and data from anywhere at any time using the employee's device of a choice.
With workspace-as-a-service solutions, employees can log in to the WaaS provider's service and be provided with a virtual workspace desktop environment that appears and operates like their actual physical office desktop. In this manner, WaaS solutions enable employees to be more productive and capable of accessing critical applications and data regardless of their geographic location.
How WaaS Complements BYOD and BYOA
Workspace-as-a-Service solutions can typically be accessed by a variety of means, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones. WaaS services complement corporate strategies for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Bring Your Own Apps (BYOA) and even Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC), while helping to minimize potential security risks to the enterprise by ensuring security policies and best practices are implemented and followed.
