Secure Managed Desktop

Manage, secure and configure devices across your business. With our Secure Managed Desktop solution, all your devices are made company-compliant, quickly and efficiently.

Surveyed, Secured and Streamlined

 Automatically implement your group policies, user restrictions and hardware protections from a single Cloud portal, simplifying deployment and standardising devices.
With firewalls and encryption included as standard, and the ability to customise user privileges down to the hardware level, your users can work from any device or connection without jeopardising your company security; and if any devices don’t match the standards of the latest security updates, they’re kept away from your network until they do.

What’s the minimum license term?
1 Month, you can increase or decrease your number of users each calendar month as required.

Secure Managed Desktop is designed around Microsoft endpoint devices, however many of the same security features are available on MacOS.

What is the minimum hardware specification for a device?
A minimum specification of Intel i3 or AMD equivalent CPU, 6GB RAM and 120GB Hard Drive would be suitable.
