It is no longer surprising to hear about the rate at which Desktop as a Software (DaaS) is increasingly adopted over the last few years. The trend that sees DaaS growing in popularity over VDI as a computing solution does not look like it will be slowing down anytime soon.
More and more organizations operating VDIs are switching to DaaS. To face modern market changes, it is important to see what service providers’ new strategy would be. vCloudPoint has been providing DaaS services long enough to become one of the top-quality companies in its field.

Existing problems in DaaS
Since 2017, the DaaS market has witnessed an impressive growth of up to 50%, which should continue in the years to come. This number shows a tendency in companies adopting cloud-hosted virtual desktop solutions instead of on premise VDI.
One of the remaining reasons why some organizations are still hesitant about adopting DaaS is due to the probability of an endpoint security breach. Since it is cloud-hosted, there is lower control of configuration which may result in information leaks. Besides, there is also the problem of the rising cost of hardware as the number of users grows.
Ultimately, even though VDI requires the company to hire IT professional working personnel. VDI signature has been empowering the users with more control as compared to DaaS which forces the organization to rely strictly on its service providers. Because of few drawbacks of DaaS, it has not yet been claimed as the best choice among the two.

As there are fewer hardware requirements, endpoint security breaches are reduced along with the necessity to run periodic maintenance checks. Zero Client system uses minimal hardware and makes DaaS safer than ever.
