An innovative and DevOps approach to VDI

My I.T. teams can work with a streamlined-devops architecture instead of legacy VDI solutions and can deliver faster without compromising on quality and security. As an architect I need cost-effective options for my customer's use cases that I haven't found with popular VDI solutions until Kasm.

Pros

The main feature I like from Kasm is that, unlike conventional / popular vendors , they have a devops approach to VDI which is beneficial for I.T. teams and end users. Most VDI teams face challenges with gold image management, slow implementation, cost and user computing. Kasm has solved the main challenges of VDI gold images by using containers for the VDI so your images are code that is then executed in a pipeline, teams can see the documented code to understand what makes their image which increases confidence when making changes. Businesses often have to wait on I.T. to use technology, I was able to configure a Kasm server and a custom image in a matter of hours. Their cloud solution is also ready in case you don't need infrastructure. When it comes to cost the Kasm containers can be destroyed at logoff to not leave resources idling like other VDI solutions. The user experience is well designed and easy to follow.

Cons

Software developed for windows might be challenging to use but the shift to SaaS, web apps and increased Linux adoption are in their favor.

Reasons for Choosing Kasm

They offer the best price without compromising on quality, security and usability.

Cloud Hosted Applications and Desktops

A great way to leverage the cloud when interacting with the internet to make sure that your computer and data stays safe.

Pros

Cloud service that provides access to applications, desktops and browsers. This allows me to interact with the web without putting my browser/computer at risk. The Sharing feature is very useful for screen sharing without having to join into a web conference application. The ability to launch a desktop to have access to installed applications or to modify files with a full productivity suite is very useful.

Cons

File upload is through the control panel instead of drag-and-drop.

Reasons for Choosing Kasm

The best price of the available solutions, cloud hosted and browser-based so I don’t have to install any software.

Remote Applications and Desktops? Kasm is what you need.

Pros

We tried Kasm for a specific project to deploy desktop and remote apps, and Kasm helps us achieve this task. It was easy to deploy and easy to learn. If you need a remote isolate browse or a VDI Solutions without spending a ton of money, Kasm is what you're looking for.

I don't see any cons. Maybe nice to have support for multiples languages.

Do not require a ton of hardware to run, was easy to deploy and learn how works.

Web-based Secure Remote Access

This makes it easier for teleworkers to get access to applications on the work network without having to install any software on the devices at home. This allows employees to use personal devices and phones instead of always needing a company computer.

Pros

Home-based employees have secure access to work applications through a web browser without installing a VPN client. Since it is a web browser solution so it can be used on untrusted devices to allow secure access to internal applications and prevents any data loss.

Cons

The cut-and-paste function works through the control panel instead of directly into the browser.

Reasons for Choosing Kasm

Kasm is entirely web-based, so we don't need to install software on the endpoints.

Response from Kasm Technologies

Replied February 2021

Thanks for the review. We a pleased to hear that Kasm was able to provide a browser-based secure telework solution, without the need for installing VPN software.

Secure Desktop and Safe Browsing Experience

More productive with Client Details and less stress with privacy, especially with banking

Pros

Kasm is the first true "Workplace in the Cloud”, providing access to applications, desktops and browsers. I use Kasm for presentations of my work-in-progress. I can share my screen with participants without putting my browser at risk. The Sharing feature is also useful for remote screen sharing during web conferences or meetings without having to join into a web conference application. The broad range of powerful features of Kasm allows me to interact with the Web without exposing my computer/browser to risks such as malware or phishing attacks and data loss during a system crash.

Cons

The Copy and Paste is only functional through the control panel

Secure Desktop for Email/Files/Websites

With more people working from home during COVID, not everyone has access to the latest cybersecurity protection which makes it important to take precautions against web threats. Kasm allows me to interact with untrusted email and files without putting my own system at risk.

Pros

Kasm provides a safe way to visit websites, check webmail and open files without putting my computer at risk. As a realtor, I have to open files from clients and colleagues who may not have the latest security protections. By using a desktop in the cloud, I can ensure that my computer is not compromised.

Cons

Additional browser login when opening the desktop.
