Virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) are becoming more common place as they offer enterprises costs savings however, they also pose new security risks. A Gartner report that said that it expects 50,000,000 users, or 15% of corporate desktops to be deployed via VDI by 2013. For these users and their employers, VDI may offer cost savings but it makes them more vulnerable than ever to screen scrapers, key loggers, DNS redirection and malware.
As businesses strive to reduce costs associated with application and data access, many organizations are finding the solution resides in leveraging existing resources to centralize applications and services. But what happens when data is accessed on your VDI from a local machine that is possibly infected with malware? That data is now susceptible to malware and theft.
Secure Your VDI Your Way
SafeCentral™ for VDI provides data loss prevention (DLP) to ensure that the connection is secure and the endpoint data is protected when users access VDI farms. Enterprises can choose to run SafeCentral’s SafeBrowser to protect browsing activity within our secure desktop or you can utilize SafeCentral’s IE or Firefox browser plugins to automatically redirect certain browsing activity to the SafeBrowser allowing enterprises to ensure users are in a secure environment when accessing their VDI.
SafeCentral™ for VDIs has many features that work together to ensure the connection is secure and the endpoint data is protected when users access VDI farms:
- Actively protects desktop PC from malicious agents by intercepting the low-level Windows commands that allow them to function
- Rescues the user from the perils of the local network (Wi-Fi, man-in-the-middle attacks) by establishing a secure, certificate guaranteed link with a secure DNS server
- Routes the user to the VDI directly through secured DNS
- Provides visual cues with a locked down desktop, simplified browser, and cooperation with existing authentication methods (Site Key, certificates, etc.) to thwart phishing and other attacks
- Restricts application execution privileges, including application tampering and the full range of Windows functions
- Utilizes deep kernel-mode hooking to tie into the DNA of the Windows OS, below the functions exploited by hackers
- User credentials cannot be intercepted by any keylogger, screen capture or other agent as SafeCentral™ locks out their ability to function.
- Operates independently of signatures or databases, ensuring up-to-date protection at all times
- Integrates seamlessly with preventative desktop security measures and existing authentication schemes with little or no effort
