SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A new, fully-managed engineering virtual desktop that dramatically simplifies collaboration and enhances productivity of engineering and design resources is being introduced by Secure-24 (www.secure-24.com), a leading provider of managed IT operations, application hosting and managed cloud services.
Secure-24's Engineering Desktops solution simplifies the management of engineering workstations used for 3D intensive applications such as AutoCAD, CATIA, Revit and Photoshop and secures high-value creative content by providing a virtual desktop with a dedicated, hardware-based graphics processor, in the company's secure data centers.
By implementing Secure-24's Engineering Desktops, customers will benefit from a reduction in capital expenditures of high-use graphic workstations, reduced overhead of maintaining these workstations, increased data security and faster onboarding of new engineering, design and creative staff. By leveraging NVIDIA Grid vGPU and VMware Horizon View, remote and mobile users can access workstations from any Internet-connected device, increasing overall productivity and team collaboration, from both onsite and in the field.
Users can connect to Secure-24's Engineering Desktops securely using multi-factor authentication, decreasing the likelihood of unauthorized access. Corporate data is secured by Secure-24's Defense in Depth model within enterprise class data centers, eliminating the risk associated with storing creative data on local workstations. The company's 3D virtual desktops also provide enterprise back-ups and recovery of end-user data in the event of data loss. In addition, Secure-24's concurrent model enables additional staff to access graphics processing resources reducing the amount of workstations required by a customer.
"Standard engineering workstations are costly to procure and maintain, and can lead to data security issues by storing creative data locally," said Scott McIsaac, CTO at Secure-24. "Our Engineering Desktops replace the need for high-end workstations with cost-efficient 3D virtual desktops. This solution provides engineering and design users with a fully-managed, high-performance, highly-secure infrastructure that will allow them to increase productivity, decrease overall costs and enable collaboration between distributed teams."
Secure-24's Engineering Desktops leverage VMware Horizon View and run on a cluster of high-performance servers with the latest NVIDIA Grid K2 Graphics Cards. VMware Horizon View with NVIDIA GRID vGPU enables designers, architects and engineers to run the most advanced, graphics-rich applications in a remote desktop—using NVIDIA professional 3D graphics and certified application drivers.
