|OPSWAT’s Secure Virtual Desktop SDK (SVD) protects sensitive data accessed from unprotected devices such as home computers, public kiosks and guest laptops. Ideal for shielding corporate applications, networks or data, SVD allows organizations to extend the reach of their security policy to unmanaged devices by ensuring that no traces of any activities inside a secure session remain on the machine at session end.||
Because of the expanding reach of web-based applications, sensitive data is now accessible by employees and business partners on a variety of remote systems. Company financials and customer information are available through web-based CRMs such as Salesforce, and other SaaS solutions can make organizations' intellectual property available remotely as well. Corporate security departments face an increasingly difficult task of ensuring the integrity of endpoints and preventing the compromise of confidential enterprise assets.
SVD is able to extend the corporate security policy and enforce data leak prevention by creating a fully sandboxed environment for employees working on any computer. This secure workspace, existing inside an isolated clone of the file system, protects information provided by web applications and erases all saved changes at session termination.
|SVD is a virtual clone that sits between a system’s applications and hardware (hard drives, registry, copy/paste buffers, external media, printers, etc.). SVD allows applications to read from these sensitive areas, but as applications try to write to the system, SVD intercepts them so that everything is written to the cloned desktop. SVD also applies security policies from a configuration file, providing control over user access to system resources and over authorization of data sharing to and from the isolated environment. When the session ends, the virtual environment is deleted along with everything that has been written to it during the session.|
During the secure session, users can navigate their system to access all of their saved files and applications, use the applications as normal, and edit and save files. On Windows 8, Secure Virtual Desktop adds the Start menu back to the desktop to allow users to access directories. Once the user exits the secure session, all traces of activities and saved changes are securely deleted.
