Remote Access Services for home workers and BYOD

When remote working, one of the biggest challenges is feeling removed from an office environment without access to the usual facilities. An RAS (Remote Access Service) from Parallels provides a centralised and securely managed desktop experience, allowing users to feel like they are working from the office as part of a team. They will be able to print from an office printer or access a local hard drive with seamless access to virtual apps and desktops anywhere, anytime.

RAS can also be used to offer a universal and consistent BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) experience. For instance, education establishments can provide a common look and feel for everyone, whichever device they decide to bring into school. Parallels RAS gives a best-in-class user experience on any device—including HTML5 browsers, iOS and Android.

Whether remote working or BYOD, the RAS services offer enhanced security with highly granular permission policies. Data security is improved by centralizing, monitoring and restricting access while reducing total cost of ownership (TCO). The architecture is flexible and scalable, allowing organizations to quickly adapt to changes in the workplace or classroom.

Parallels also offers a fast, easy and powerful way for anyone wanting to run Windows applications on their Mac, or to transfer their entire operating system from a PC to a Mac. It gives you the ability to use thousands of resource-hungry Windows programs (e.g. Office, Internet Explorer, Access, QuickBooks, Visual Studio) with no compromise on performance and no need for constant rebooting. You can even use graphic intensive games and CAD programs on a Mac with no problems.
