Sun Secure Global Desktop Software speeds the free flow of information across the enterprise by providing secure, portable access to applications and data

Organizations today are faced with an increasing demand to consolidate, secure and protect corporate applications and data. At the same time, there is an increasing demand to supply teleworkers, remote offices and mobile employees with access to applications and data from a multitude of devices, including unmanaged or non-company owned.

How does the enterprise manage these growing demands without adding complexity to existing systems or inhibit user flexibility and efficiency?

Hear from John Girard, featured Gartner Analyst, on this topic. Additionally, learn how SunTM Secure Global Desktop Software keeps sensitive information and data secure while not hindering productivity - a solution that provides high performance access to applications and data securely from anywhere, at any time and from virtually any device.

The online guide to secure computing, "Secure Virtual Computing, Simplified Solutions," offers numerous resources about keeping data secure. For example, an online interview with Girard of Gartner discusses how to keep data secure and how to regulate access for remote and mobile workers tapping into corporate systems from beyond the firewall. The Girard interview is about 20 minutes and addresses the complexity that arises from the variety of platforms, exposure of systems, the challenges of data sychronization, and how server-based computing keeps applications centralized and updated from one place. Companies need to choose which applications to run locally and which will be accessed online, based on the needs of each user, their access needs and the implications of downtime.

Also discussed in the Gartner interview is:

  • How remote programs are evolving

  • Privacy and protection available from a VPN

  • Innovations in on-demand security

  • Best practices for company-owned workstations or devices

  • The future of security technologies

Other resources available online include:

  • A 15-page whitepaper on the security features of the Sun Secure Global Desktop software

  • A webcast of the advantages of desktop virtualization featuring Mark Margevicius, VP, Gartner Research; Alan Brenner, Senior VP of Client Systems Group at Sun; and Peter Reid, security and privacy portfolio strategist of EDS.

  • A link to a free download of Sun Secure Global Desktop software 4.2
