Dell today announced the launch of its Desktop Virtualization Solutions for Government (DVS-Gov), an end-to-end desktop virtualization tool designed specifically for government customers. This secure and efficient enterprise-class solution helps government agencies manage “geographic sprawl” through greater mobility and the ability to power almost any device virtually anywhere, allowing government workers more flexibility. DVS-Gov can allow customers to securely access information anywhere in the world to manage operations that require a powerful, IT backbone that meets tough federal security and compliance standards.
Government agencies looking at optimizing endpoint management often gravitate to desktop virtualization as a solution to this problem. DVS-Gov also ensures simple management for agencies requiring telework as well as greater overall mobility functions. However, many government customers are also beginning to field demands from their workforce to have their networks accommodate any device, anywhere which can open up new security loopholes, such as secure data leaving a secure area, which has prevented many agencies from accommodating telework or greater mobility in the past.
The Dell DVS-Gov solution addresses these issues and enables more secure mobility in a fully end-to-end validated technology stack. In conjunction with newly acquired Wyse technology, DVS-Gov helps federal agencies meet strict regulatory mandates for data access by meeting government certification and security standards. Additionally, in partnership with AppSense and ActivIdentity, DVS-Gov also gives government customers granular control over security and access policy which allows them to give their employees the freedom to securely access their work in more places with more devices. This solution makes viable initiatives like telework, allowing employees to work remotely out of necessity or allowing for greater flexibility.
“We’re committed to helping our government customers accomplish their mission anywhere, anytime,” said Jere Carroll, general manager of civilian and intelligence agencies, Dell Federal. “With IT becoming a vital tool government customers require to accomplish their mission, we at Dell are constantly looking for ways to empower these very important customers by giving them the flexibility they need – and DVS-Gov is a perfect example of that.”
