FastDesk

Desktop-as-a-service software (DaaS) for multiple endpoints

About FastDesk

FastDesk is a desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) software that helps sales, support, finance, application development, design, and editorial teams set up virtual desktop infrastructure across multiple endpoint devices. Administrators can configure two-factor authentication, manage data backups, and use built-in antivirus tools to provide a secure user experience.

FastDesk lets supervisors set up custom user permissions, restricting employees from logging in at predefined hours and revoking access to specific files, applications, databases, and IP addresses. The white-labelling functionality allows users to customize the platform and add images, colors, or logos according to business requirements. It also lets organizations maintain compliance with several regulatory guidelines, such as ISO, PCI, and Cyber Essentials.

The virtual desktop infrastructure enables employees to use external applications, including Microsoft Office, Sage, Power BI, AutoCAD, and Adobe Creative Cloud. It also allows staff members to access multiple desktops from the platform and use the favorites option to pin and quickly access specific desktop environments.

Does what it is supposed to

Easy.

Easy.

Pros

Easy integration, very rare downtime, just sits and does what it is supposed to, which is the highest compliment in my book.

Cons

Well if one wanted to be really picky I suppose it would always be nice to have a faster 'log in/start up' time.

Response from UKFast

Pros

The platform is reliable and it is good to be able to access it wherever you are working. The support is good and they normally manage to resolve issues quickly

Cons

The numerous usernames and passwords required to use all the features and the Shared Folders function is fiddly as you can't create a new folder without going into the admin area and it also doesn't block a second user from working on the same document when you are
