Amazon WorkSpaces is a secure, cost-effective Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering hosted on the AWS Cloud. With Amazon WorkSpaces, you can provide your users with a fast, consistent, and familiar desktop experience on the device of their choice globally.
Easily and securely provision cloud-based desktops
Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering hosted on the AWS Cloud. With Amazon WorkSpaces, you can deploy your corporate desktop environment on the AWS Cloud, providing your users secure, convenient access to the applications, documents, and resources they need, on the device of their choice from anywhere in the world. Amazon WorkSpaces tightly integrates with your existing resources, so you can derive all of the benefits of virtual desktops while continuing to use existing policies and practices. No upfront investment is required, scaling is simple and quick, and it is built on the secure AWS infrastructure. Amazon WorkSpaces is available in multiple AWS regions worldwide, so you can deploy in a single region, or globally, and scale at your own pace.
Integrate with your existing corporate infrastructure
Amazon WorkSpaces can be smoothly integrated with your on-premises network and Microsoft Active Directory, allowing your users to continue using their corporate credentials, and your IT department to maintain existing policies and processes. When you launch a new WorkSpace, you can choose to encrypt its volumes using AWS Key Management Service (KMS). KMS makes it easy to create and control encryption keys and uses Hardware Security Modules to protect the security of your keys. You can also bring your existing Windows 7 and 10 Desktop Licenses to Amazon WorkSpaces and run the Windows 7 and 10 Desktop OS on hardware that is physically dedicated to you. If your organization uses multi-factor authentication, you can incorporate your existing MFA practice by connecting your RADIUS server with WorkSpaces for increased security.
