Code42 Software has unveiled that its Incydr product fully supports all major Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments. The Code42 Incydr product detects when valuable and sensitive files are moved to untrusted locations, including personal email and cloud accounts, and removable media – and allows security teams to respond in order to stop data leaks and theft.
According to a recent survey of IT professionals published by Citrix, nearly 70% of organizations are planning to implement VDIs to accommodate hybrid or remote work strategies, with just under 60% accelerating the adoption of cloud tools.
Though DaaS and VDI solutions help security teams better protect against vulnerabilities, malicious actors and other external threats, they do little to reduce the risk from insiders, as virtual environments inherently depend on cloud tools.
“We’ve seen a notable uptick in the number of teams that have deployed DaaS and VDI solutions throughout their environments. Given the continued popularity of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and remote work, coupled with an unstable hardware supply chain, we absolutely expect this trend to continue,” said Rob Juncker, CTO of Code42.
“In virtual-first organizations where there is pervasive use of cloud collaboration tools, such as Git, Salesforce, GDrive, OneDrive and iCloud, Incydr wraps a layer of protection around data put at risk by insiders, complementing solutions that focus on external threats and malicious actors.”, Juncker continued.
