Telecom master agent Telarus has announced that it’s teaming up with Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) provider Nuvestack to offer virtual desktops to its channel partners.
“We are excited to be working with Nuvestack to address the massive uptick in demand we've seen for secure desktop virtualization for businesses of all sizes," said Paula McKinnon, vice president of supplier management for Telarus (News - Alert). "This new partnership with Nuvestack will enable our channel partners to offer a virtual desktop solution to their clients that is simple, easy-to-use, and most importantly, easy to manage without having to have a large IT staff.”
Virtual desktops are becoming popular in businesses because they allow companies to keep confidential information on company computers without storing them on personal machines, such as laptops or tablets. If the device is stolen, access can be simply revoked. This is essential for sectors that have strict privacy and security requirements, such as healthcare.
They also offer a traditional desktop on tablets for productivity under BYOD policies. These desktops offer a consistent interface regardless of the actual device type, from Windows and Mac computers to iPads to smartphones.
Nuvestack offers DaaS without a specialized IT department having to provision them, which appeals to smaller businesses.
"Nuvestack only works with the best of the best in the IT channel, and Telarus certainly fits that bill," said Nuvestack senior vice president Lanny Gray, who also happens to be a former Telarus executive. "Speaking from experience, Telarus has an impeccable reputation for innovating and creating software that helps its partners see what others can’t. With this unique technology, Telarus has attracted the best partners in the industry – many of whom are beginning to see the value in offering DaaS to their clients. We look forward to seeing Telarus have success with Nuvestack as they continue to help their partners evolve in addition to attracting new ‘born in the cloud’ partners."
