Today City Network, one of the fastest growing IaaS providers in Europe, announces the launch of a new service for the Enterprise market. With Desktop as a Service (DaaS) customers can give their employees secure access to their unique desktop configuration and apps from any hardware platform as they work in a completely cloud based desktop solution.

By optimizing companies’ investment in hardware for end users, as well as enabling centralized distribution of updates and patches, DaaS from City Network will save both time and money for any organization.
