Natively Integrated Webex Virtual Desktop Client Provides Great Experience and Extra Security

Expanded Native VDI Support Finance & Healthcare Virtual Desktop Workflows

As companies transition their workforce to WFH, more industries are making the move to the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) in order to deliver a secure and productive experience for their employees at home. VDI technologies increase mobility, security and efficiency, while providing an amazing experience to their users. Organizations choose to deploy VDI technologies to deliver best-in-class media quality and industry-leading collaboration to their users.  

For example, in the financial services industry, a Webex Meetings VDI client ensures data security by keeping customer information protected and off vulnerable devices.  It also improves employee’s productivity by enabling them to work from any station at any location. We have been on the forefront of providing HD video, audio and content sharing on VDI thin clients over the years, helping users to seamlessly collaborate with each other and get their work done. Our latest release expands our VDI capabilities even further. Users can now join a Webex meeting via a natively integrated VDI client and enjoy a similar experience as the Webex Meetings Desktop App. 

The Webex Meetings Virtual Desktop software uses the same Webex Meetings Desktop app that is used in a non-VDI environment. It supports similar functionalities and enables users to start and join meetings, share content, access in-meeting controls, record and much more.

Simple and First-Class Experience to Users

The Webex Meetings VDI client doesn’t require any additional Infrastructure such as Cisco Unified Call Manager and Cisco Expressway. All audio and video streams automatically get directed between the VDI thin client and the Webex Meetings Cloud without going through the hosted desktop. The Webex Meetings VDI client keeps media on the edge, and eliminates network bandwidth usage, and lowers data center compute costs while delivering superior real-time audio and video quality.

The Webex Meetings VDI can easily be deployed and is available for Citrix Desktops 7.15, 7.16, 7.17 and 7.18, VMWare Horizon 7 version 7.6, 7.7, 7.8, 7.9, 7.10, 7.11, and Thin Client OS running Windows 10.

VDI continues to be an important part of our collaboration suite and it will continue to be enhanced to increase productivity and deliver a simple and first-class experience to our users.
