What is VDI?

VDI, or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. is the technology and software that allows end-users to access virtual desktops and applications remotely from any location in a highly secure environment. VDI’s are hosted on an organization’s secure centralized server or as a VPN service in the cloud and are delivered to the end-users. VDI protects sensitive information by storing it in a central location with high-security protocols instead of being distributed to less secure endpoints and devices. See What does VDI stand for?

What is VDI Access?

VDI access refers to the ability of a remote end-user or employee to login, access, and utilize their corporate desktop securely from any location. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) hosts virtual desktops on an organization’s centralized server because it is more secure than an employee’s endpoint device. VDI access supports the growing trend of remote work.

At CloudBrink, we've made it our mission to put a stop to slow VDI with our high-performance Corporate VPN Replacement.

What is a VDI Connection?

A VDI connection lets you access a virtual desktop (like a remote computer) from any device. It runs on a powerful server, not your device itself. You connect through software, similar to logging into a remote computer over an internet connection.

What is VDI in Cyber Security?

VDI, or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, prioritizes security in remote work. VDI creates virtual desktops on a central server, accessed remotely by users. This central storage keeps sensitive information away from potentially less secure personal devices. Cloudbrink emphasizes VDI's security benefits over traditional VPNs, highlighting that VDI stores data centrally with strong security protocols. This approach aims to minimize the risk of data breaches on individual devices.

What is a VPN for VDI (VDI VPN)?

Cloudbrink demonstrates that a VPN isn't necessarily the best solution for VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) even though both are related to secure remote access. Here's what they suggest as an alternative and we strongly recommend Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) as a more secure and performant alternative to VPNs for VDI access
