VDI Alternative for Third-Party and Employee BYOD Access

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions such as Citrix and VMware Horizon are often deployed to secure third-party and employee BYOD access. They are notoriously difficult to administer, expensive and tend to deliver poor user experiences.

That is why organizations are adopting Talon’s secure enterprise browser as an alternative. Unlike a VDI or 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 third-party and employee BYOD access for a fraction of the cost of VDI or DaaS solutions.

Why Secure Enterprise Browsers are Emerging as an Alternative to VDI

Reduce VDI usage with TalonWork

Secure workspace on any device 

Create a secure workspace on any endpoint in just minutes. Isolate web traffic locally, on the endpoint, for a responsive, native user experience. 

Prevent Data Loss 

Encrypt data to prevent sensitive files from being shared externally or stored on endpoints. Leverage granular clipboard, printing, and screenshot restrictions. 

Threat protection 

Prevent access to malicious domains, URLs, and phishing websites with enhanced safe browsing functions. Defend against malware with native file scanning capabilities or optional CrowdStrike Falcon X Threat Intelligence integration. 

Zero Trust access 

Continuously authenticate and authorize users and endpoints. Validate an endpoint’s security posture based on the underlying OS, patch version, installed security software, etc.
