Virtualize IE (Thin App) VS RemoteAPP IE -we need some advise-
Posted on 2011-03-05
We are a media company and we have a group of users that because their role they have to research for news, events, etc on the internet. We had situations where their computers have been infected and this is becoming an issue because we can't keep reimaging their workstation or running the AV, troubleshooting etc.
We are evaluationg different ways to have them use VMs in order to browse the internet and use non-persitent disk so that the VM will not keep the changes. - For the time being this is what we are doing.
We are also looking into Thin App so that IE can be virtualized and executed over their workstation I think that virtualizing the app will still bring the treaths to their computers if they go to a compromised site.
The other way could be something like TS RemoteAPP but I think we are going to be in the same scenario that Think App IE.
We were wondering if someone has any suggestions about any other way to approach this problem. I am not sure if there are any way to acomplish what I want (secure IE browsing) using either ThinkAPP IR or RemoteAPP IE. Going torward the virtualizaton of IE for this particular matter will be easier for the users but I don't know if it be secure enough.
