VDI Deployments are in over 90% of all the Fortune 1000 companies and are used in almost all industry verticals, but are they secure? With the rise of Work From Home VDI deployments have grown and become much more common with the pandemic in 2020. The goal of most VDI deployments is to centrally deliver applications and/or desktops to users internally and externally, but in many cases their basic security recommendations haven’t fully deployed, allowing an attacker to gain access. This talk will review the basic design of the top two solution providers, Citrix and VMware along with some notes on Windows Azure Virtual Desktop as a growing solution. We will go over these solutions strengths and weaknesses and learn how to quickly identify server roles and pivot. We will also examine all the major attack points and their defensive counters. If you or if you have a client that has a VDI Deployment you don’t want to miss this talk.
