Windows 365

Securely stream your personalised apps, content, and settings to any device with the world's first Cloud PC.

A new Virtual Desktop for hybrid work

As we seek greater flexibility in how we work and from the processes by which organisations operate, cloud-based systems are addressing this need in terms of capabilities and security.

Stepping up to the challenges of modern workplace requirements, Windows 365 securely streams a personalised Windows desktop, settings, content and apps – including all the Office 365 applications from the cloud to any device with a browser. Windows 365 Cloud PC is designed to empower individuals and organisations to be flexible, connected, and secure.

Where the complexity and cost of desktop virtualisation has historically been uneconomical; Windows 365 allows anyone to set up a virtual Windows 10 or Windows 11 desktop in the cloud in minutes. This feature makes Windows 365 accessible from any device, whether that be a Windows PC, iPad, Android, or Mac.

The design and implementation of Windows 365 comes from Zero Trust principles, which prioritises security while storing information in the cloud, rather than on the device. As cybersecurity threats rise, securing those resources is paramount. Windows 365 is just the beginning of what will be possible as the lines blur between the device and the cloud.

Employees, managers, contractors, software developers, and industrial designers all benefit from this new hybrid category which uses the power of the cloud and capabilities of the device to provide a complete, personalised Windows experience on any machine with a browser.

Set up is easy via a cloud service provider like The Missing Link. Your organisation can be set up with Windows 365 and start quickly enjoying customised and flexible options. Windows 365 is a turnkey solution, unlike complex VDI and remote working platforms.
