About Amazon WorkSpaces

Amazon WorkSpaces is a Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) software that helps businesses facilitate remote working through cloud-hosted desktop virtualization. It enables administrators to maintain a secure user platform through multi-factor authentication, single sign-on (SSO), custom permission levels, and IP address-based access control features.

Amazon WorkSpaces allows businesses to categorize resources by adding tags across work spaces, imported images, IP access control groups, bundles, and directories. The WorkSpace Application Manager (WAM) lets users add and track usage of external applications on virtual desktops. Supervisors can also utilize the CloudWatch module to set up threshold-specific alarms and analyze performance across several work spaces.

Amazon WorkSpaces comes with an API, which allows businesses to integrate the solution with multiple third-party systems. It alsoenables users to maintain virtual desktop infrastructure in compliance with HIPAA data protection and PCI DSS payment processing regulations.
