Remote PC access for secure, direct connections to office PCs (1:37)

Business increasingly must face the issue of providing remote access to enterprise PCs while protecting highly sensitive intellectual property and customer data. Many organizations lock down the corporate network and turn to an SSL VPN solution for remote access, but this approach extends the secured network to unsecured remote devices, increasing risk rather than protecting against it. XenDesktop with Remote PC allows IT to centrally deploy secure remote access to Windows® PCs on a corporate network, giving users fast, high-fidelity remote access to all the corporate apps and data residing on an office PC.
