Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD)

Enable a secure remote desktop experience from virtually anywhere 

A secure remote desktop experience with the latest generation of remote desktop services

Access your desktop and applications from virtually anywhere and help secure your employee and company data by storing in Azure cloud, rather than local desktops.

Azure Virtual Desktop (formerly Windows Virtual Desktop) enables secure remote work with the familiarity and compatibility of Windows 10 and Windows 11, providing employees with the same experience as on their local desktop or laptop – whether they’re managing their inbox with Outlook, sharing files in OneDrive or collaborating with colleagues on Microsoft Teams.

Bring your own device (BYOD) and access your desktop and applications over the Internet using an Azure Virtual Desktop client such as Windows, Mac, iOS, Android or HTML5.

Receive the best virtualised experience with scalable multi-sessions and save costs by only paying for what you use. AVD can be used with your existing eligible Microsoft 365 or Windows per-user licence.


  • Ideal for any size business
  • Speed, scalability and familiarity with multi-session windows 10 or 11
  • Make the most of Azure Hosting with a highly secure and globally accessible workspace with the added advantage that applications can be run remotely from users' machines
