Desktop Obfuscation and Managed Attribution Through Armored Cloud's New VDI

These days, the only real solution to remove an employee’s digital footprint and contain or obfuscate their digital exhaust is through a strict policy of managed attribution and non-persistent computing.

Enterprise level obfuscation and managed attribution—appearing to be somewhere you are not online, thus masking your true location—is fast becoming a critical cybersecurity need for global organizations. This challenge can now be solved with the non-persistent virtual connections available through Armored Cloud’s new Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI).

Every online activity—webpages visited, forms filled out, purchases made, and applications used—is actively and passively stored on a user’s local hard drive and used primarily by advertisers to deliver targeted ad content.

However, this digital footprint is no longer being used solely by ad networks, but has become a prime target for hackers, crooks, and those looking to profit illegally from a user’s online presence.

As applied to the enterprise, a user’s uncontrolled digital exhaust and traceable footprint can lead hackers directly to valuable corporate assets. Controlling digital exhaust and managing online attribution can be achieved by either hiding a user’s source and location or by broadcasting a false source and location. Traditional solutions to this problem, like Tor and other one-hop proxies, can be traced by today’s sophisticated hackers and carry predictable performance challenges.

“These days, the only real solution to remove an employee’s digital footprint and contain or obfuscate their digital exhaust is through a strict policy of managed attribution and non-persistent computing,” says Michael Howland, CEO of Armored Cloud. “In order to truly secure enterprise assets, a multi-nodal, secure infrastructure must be put in place that offers the necessary performance required for a user to perform their daily job without suffering the latency blues.”

Armored Cloud, with a network presence in over 100 countries, created their new Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) to allow enterprise users to globally manage their attribution from the convenience of their existing computer with no impact on performance. A user sitting in a coffee shop in Boston is able to log on to their preferred computing device and through the VDI appear to the outside world as though they are currently present in London, with no traceable connection back to Boston—all with no discernable latency.

Demos and trials of Armored Cloud’s new Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) are available to qualified organizations and businesses. Additional information about the Armored Cloud Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) is available on our website.

Armored Cloud offers an enterprise suite of unique and innovative global enterprise solutions for organizations looking for competitive leverage and anonymized online activities. Operating under the philosophy that you can’t exploit what you can’t see, Armored Cloud offers a completely anonymous way for modern companies to do business, connect global resources, conduct research online, and collect threat intelligence data—all with minimal latency and zero impact to current business processes.
