What is a Hosted Desktop?

Citadel’s Hosted Desktop is like working on your PC, but “virtually” in the cloud. Essentially, it is a computer controlled over the internet. The Citadel difference is that by connecting to our Hosted Desktop, you are connecting into a secure, managed environment which is looked after by the Citadel Team.

We help business by providing a consistent experience across any device, whether that be your computer, laptop, tablet or even your mobile phone! Citadel Technology’s aim is to help keep your business operating and your team working, no matter the circumstances.

Enhanced Security

Protect your business against cyber attacks and unpredictable disasters with anti-virus, firewall protection and 24/7 security monitoring, all in the Citadel bubble.
