Test your knowledge of mobile VDI access

Users require access to virtual resources on their mobile devices. IT can manage VDI on smartphones and tablets using authentication methods, individual virtual app delivery and more.

Delivering virtual desktops and applications to users' PCs is complicated enough. Throw in mobile devices -- with their smaller screens and touch-based interfaces -- and VDI admins have a lot of work on their hands.

Users expect to have access to the same apps and data on their mobile devices as they do on their PCs, so VDI shops must be prepared to deliver virtual resources to smartphones and tablets. IT must be familiar with technology such as two-factor authentication and understand the security implications of mobile VDI access.

Show off how well you understand mobile VDI, including options for authentication, what goes into delivering virtual apps and more.
