This IDC Survey Spotlight examines the impact of digital workspaces and VDI on endpoint security in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ).
The demand for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and digital workspace increased as physical distancing restrictions drove work-from-home and hybrid working arrangements during the COVID-19 pandemic. These arrangements are expected to last beyond the post-COVID-19 vaccine period. Over 50% of APEJ survey respondents expect to spend more on VDI and digital workspace solutions in 2021 than in 2020. With this growth in VDI demand, endpoint security needs to be evaluated to support VDI and digital workspaces implementations.
