Enabling a secure remote workforce with
Insight and Microsoft

Get up and running rapidly, so your team can get back to business.

We recognize that the current global climate demands a new approach to enabling your employees and your business.

Organizations are asking IT to provide the ability for remote and work from home scenarios, to enable and enhance collaboration, and to do it all in a secure manner.

By utilizing Insight’s expertise, combined with best-in-class Microsoft solutions, you can accelerate your adoption of new services and quickly get your teams back to supporting your customers. We can assist you with the Microsoft technologies critical for today’s workers.

  • Microsoft Teams — A remote workforce calls for new capabilities and solutions for collaboration. Microsoft Teams is the new platform for organizational collaboration and communication that offers a truly unified set of tools for chatting, document collaboration, and video/audio calling and conferencing. To get you up and running with Microsoft Teams, Insight is excited to offer our Teams Rapid Deployment to existing Cloud Service Provider (CSP) program customers at no additional cost.
  • Microsoft 365 Security — Remote access and collaboration comes with its own set of security concerns. Utilizing tools like Azure Active Directory Conditional Access, Multifactor Authentication, and Intune Device Management, you can ensure that your users are equipped with the capabilities to be productive, built on top of the security your organization requires.
  • Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) — In certain circumstances and work environments, remote work requires a remote workspace. Many organizations do not have traditional virtual desktop infrastructures to fall back to. By using WVD, you can enable your remote workers with true, multi-session Windows 10 environments that are optimized for Office 365. We are currently assisting customers in getting WVD environments set up and scaled with built-in management and security.
