Hosted Desktop

We provide a highly secure hosted desktop service that allows you to securely access your data and applications from any device with an Internet connection, at any location worldwide.

What is a hosted desktop?
The desktop on your computer is what has your personal background image and shortcuts to all your applications and documents. As this physical desktop is tied to your computer, it takes skill and expertise to access it from any other device.

On the other hand, a hosted desktop isn’t linked to one specific device. To put it simply, a hosted desktop doesn’t ‘live’ in your computer; as a virtual desktop, it ‘lives’ in the cloud on a remote server and can therefore be accessed from any device anywhere, with the same functionalities and capabilities as a physical desktop. You can also access the same applications and files, exactly as you would on your computer’s desktop.

LSA Systems’ hosted desktop solution
Our hosted desktop service is fully compatible with all operating systems, including Windows, Mac and Linux, allowing you and your employees to work much more flexibly as no one will be tied to their in-house PC.

With your business’s data and applications stored remotely on our servers, our hosted desktops have industry-standard SSL encryption to guarantee that all your information is fully safeguarded. We also provide unlimited security support as part of our hosted desktop package for added reassurance.

Benefits of our hosted desktop solution
As with our other cloud solutions, like hosted email and hosted accounts, our hosted desktop service offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Cost effectiveness: There is no need for upfront capital expenditure as you don’t have to purchase servers, software, and new PCs, or pay for future upgrades. We provide a three-month rolling contract payment plan that allows for long-term budgeting, giving smaller businesses access to enterprise-level software—without the hefty price tag. Older PCs can also be replaced with more affordable ‘Thin Client’ workstations, making hosted desktops even more budget-friendly.
  • Optimum security: As hosted desktops are stored remotely in the cloud, only the screen images of the virtual desktop are sent to your devices; the actual data doesn’t leave our highly secure remote server. In addition, the screen image data is protected by the strongest possible SSL encryption.
  • Convenience: There’s no need to worry about backing up or securing your business’s data, or upgrading your server and computers. At LSA Systems, we take care of all backup, security and software upgrades for you as part of our hosted desktop package.
  • Secure data storage: Our hosted desktop service is the ideal cloud solution, with your data being backed up to the Datto Cloud.
