Cloud virtual desktop with top data protection grade
thru passwordless access via smart card

This VPS is aimed at freelancers or startup administrators who want the best data protection for its data.

All VPS features are based on Microsoft technologies so the PC client configuration does not require third-party software.

Furthermore, on purchase form, buyers can opt to equip the VPS with a data partition which can be encrypted by BitLocker via smart card to exponentially increase data protection grade.

Windows 11 PC owners can use built-in TPM device as a smart card (Microsoft Virtual Smart Card) so they don't need to buy a physical smart card or USB token.

VPS resources and BitLocker partition can be accessed via multiple smart card or via multiple virtual smart card based on TPMs.

Once the VPS has been created, multiple client PCs can be configured by a VPS specific script which can be downloaded from the Customer Area.

The client configuration allows smart card to be used to access to embedded VPN login, network shares, remote desktop (thru RDP NLA protocol) and encrypted documents in the data partition if present.

Finally, the IP address of the VPS is shielded by NAT technology in order to prevent unwanted connections due to incorrect firewall configuration.

Price includes both on site daily backup and backup located on disaster recovery located in another European country. Backups are kept for 7 days.
