Watch Now

Government employees – like citizens – are increasingly mobile. For many departments, having employees return to headquarters to do their work can be a drain on productivity. At the same time, it’s critical that government agencies protect themselves against cyber criminals who want access to their applications and data.
Join Government Technology on Dec. 4 at 11 a.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Eastern for our latest webinar, “Safeguarding Apps and Data for Mobile and Remote Workforces.” Our panel of experts will discuss some of the pain points for agencies who depend on the mobility of their employees and their ability to access critical software and applications – and how these challenges can be solved with a digital workspace powered by virtualization.
Specifically, we’ll look at how departments of transportation can:
· Increase productivity around graphic intensive applications
· Maintain control and security of intellectual property both internal and external to the agency
· Simplify management of IT systems without sacrificing end-user performance
