This is Matthew Mulcahy, and I am the
Director of Business Development
at ProSource Family of Companies.
Today, we’re going to walk through
accessing your secure Cloud Workspace
over a web browser.
First things first,
you’ll need to navigate to:
And select the
VMware Horizon HTML Access option.
From here, you log in with your
unique username and password.
This is the same username and password
that you would use on the VMware client
if you had the software installed
on your machine.
And you also have to walk
through the same Duo process
to authenticate your identity.
Here, I am selecting the Duo Push method.
You can also opt for a phone call
or SMS text message
to receive a code to verify your identity.
What you’re seeing here is me
walking through and approving
that is is me requesting access
to the cloud on my mobile device.
And it brings me to my Cloud Workspace.
From here, I can access the full desktop
or a standalone application.
For the sake of the demo today,
I’m going to open QuickBooks,
and see how I can run QuickBooks
from my web browser.
This is great for instances where
you do not have the VMware software
installed on the machine,
or you need access in a pinch,
to your secure financial information.
All of this is encrypted
within the browser,
so it is secure to the data center.
you can close this little window.
And I can work seamlessly
within a web window
and access and run my application.
So, great for access in a snap,
and you can flip between your apps
or your full cloud desktop
at the click of a button.
So, I selected my VDI,
which is my Cloud Desktop.
And it logs me straight in.
So if I needed to access
files, applications, my Office suite —
anything I need access to —
is available to me over a web browser
as a fallback,
as most of our clients do prefer
to use the (VMware) Client
as their primary access method.
Just a great feature of VMware Horizon,
and another easy way
to access your cloud workspace.
