Myths That IT Believes About Client Virtualization – Computerworld
Myth No. 2: Desktop virtualization is a security risk. Perhaps you’ve been told that desktop virtualization is less secure than a physical desktop-in reality, it actually enables a more secure client environment. Most importantly, hosted desktop virtualization removes all of the applications and data from the endpoint device. This means that your data security is immediately improved because you no longer need to worry about devices with sensitive data being lost or stolen.
OK, cloud computing is green. So what? – InfoWorld
