Many companies today face a daunting challenge protecting endpoints from persistent attackers, so it's no surprise that more organizations are seeking alternative ways to design security into their infrastructures.

Virtual desktops are one option; they provide an efficient way to standardize the baseline image for all desktops, plus they can easily be destroyed and recreated in the event of a malware incident. However, a virtual desktop deployment also brings with it new security concerns.

In this podcast, virtualization security expert Dave Shackleford discusses the various virtual desktop security capabilities offered by virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) products, including encryption, application and role-based policy management, virtual sandboxing and data protection assurance. Shackleford also highlights use cases that enterprises are currently evaluating and implementing, as well as best practices for how to leverage VDI for remote access and endpoint security.
