VDI Alternative for Third-Party and Employee BYOD Access

Businesses often use virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions like Citrix and VMware Horizon to provide secure access for employees and third parties using unsanctioned devices. VDI solutions are notoriously expensive and difficult to administer, and tend to deliver poor user experiences.

That’s why many organizations use Talon’s enterprise browser as an alternative. Unlike a VDI or Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution that hosts desktop instances remotely, Talon isolates web traffic locally on the endpoint, preventing malware spread and data loss without adding latency or impairing UX. Operations teams gain deep visibility and tight control over unmanaged and unsanctioned devices for a fraction of the cost of VDI or DaaS solutions.
