As the security and service landscape has changed, we are providing an alternative, and hopefully better, method of working remotely.  This is known as VDI, or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.  The University provides VDI through VMware Horizon which does not require a VPN connection but is inherently more secure than the older methods we have used while offering a more flexible experience that is available from a variety of devices including mobile, as well as access directly to many applications without running a separate remote desktop.  With the help of virtual desktops using VMware Horizon, University licensed applications such as ImageNow and EMS as well as mapped network drives are now available to any employee, from any location, on a variety of devices.
