Chennai, 27 April 2012:TaurusQuest has adopted a state of the art Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution to enhance significantly the secure handling of client data. The VDI solution has been deployed at Taurus Quest's third delivery facility in Chennai.
In a VDI environment, the desk top user layer is virtualized in a central server eliminating the need for PCs at the desk top. In this "zero-client" environment, all the software and hardware required to support desktop users are deployed in a VDI server. Computing power and data storage are held at the VDI server. Users connect to the VDI server using only user-interface devices such as keyboard, mouse and monitor. In a VDI setup, users run a virtual copy of the required software on the VDI server. Users have the option of connecting to the server using their handheld devices as well. The distinguishing feature of VDI over a traditional desktop environment is that in VDI, there is no local storage capacity at the desk of the users. This significantly reduces the probability of loss of data at the desktop.
TaurusQuest serves several clients in the US, Europe and India in outsourced management of business processes in accounting and legal areas. These engagements require secure handling of data. TaurusQuest strives to continuously improve security and confidentiality practices though a multitude of policies and practices. TaurusQuest’s information security management processes are certified to be compliant with ISO 270001:2005 standards.
"By adopting VDI technology, TaurusQuest demonstrates its firm commitment to data confidentiality & information security as a business priority. Securing confidential data was the prime objective behind TaurusQuest’s decision to adopt VDI technology. However, this has the additional benefit of bringing down the carbon footprint of our service delivery operations since the power consumption per user is reduced in this zero client environment. This contributes to a greener environment," said Suresh Illath, Vice President, Service Delivery
