More and more, businesses are recognising the importance of a digitally connected team and the power of enabling agile working for their workforce from a location of their choice. During these challenging times, it’s increasingly important for businesses to carry on operating using a workforce that’s all remote/home-based.
With Amazon WorkSpaces, your workforce can access their enterprise desktop no matter where they are, and stay connected with their team.
What is Amazon Workspaces?
Simply put, Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) to help streamline your digital communications solutions to a single, secure platform.
With cloud-based technology, Amazon WorkSpaces eliminates the need to manage complex hardware inventory or on-premise Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) – making it an ideal solution to activating your business’ remote working.
Amazon WorkSpaces offers a full-spectrum package with simple-to-use software integrations, giving you the option of running Microsoft Windows or Linux.

A scalable solution for a changing workforce
There may be times your business demands a flexible, scalable workforce. Current challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic means this has never been so true.
Many centres have vastly increased customer communications to handle demands, potentially leaving the team depleted. Additionally, back-office staff need to liaise with their internal teams and customers from a variety of locations – and potentially more frequently – yet still retain access to the applications they use day-to-day. With Amazon WorkSpaces, you can easily scale up or down depending on your changing demands, avoiding the needs of investing in a set number of licenses.
Central management and enhanced control
A growing need to expand the workforce requires speedy setup and launch of integral systems – even if increasing your team members is only for the short-term, granting and revoking access should be simple.
Efficient provision and de-provision capabilities, and centrally managed deployment is possible with Amazon WorkSpaces. You’ll gain full control over your workforce’s access, no matter where they’re based. And whether you choose to use Amazon WorkSpace as a standalone solution or connect it to your on-premise directory, your users can pick up right where they left off.
Greater data security than ever before
At a time where your team and customers alike will be facing demanding and competing priorities, don’t let your business’ security suffer.
Your Amazon WorkSpaces is deployed and managed through Amazon Virtual Private Network (VPC) to give each of your users access to encrypted storage. Multi-factor authentication ensures additional security for your business data, while integration with AWS Key Management Services means your data will never be stored on a local device.
Disaster recovery capabilities
No one can see what’s around the corner – and that’s never been so evident. But building the right infrastructure for your remote working now will help prepare your business for the future.
Thanks to cloud-based deployment, Amazon WorkSpaces is an ideal solution to incorporate in your Business Continuity Plan. Plus, remote desktop access enables your user to stay connected with their team, no matter what.
Reducing overhead costs
If your business is facing unexpected costs as a result of Covid-19, or you’re uncertain how long your increased workforce will be deployed, reducing expenditure is vital.
With its scalable, flexible capabilities, Amazon WorkSpaces eliminates the need to buy multiple desktop or laptop resources, minimising overhead costs and wasteful purchases. Additionally, the solution offers a range of flexible payment options to suit your business.
