Are Virtual Desktops More Secure?

Presented by

About this talk

Everyone says to virtualize your desktops and you will be more secure, but is that really the case, we will look into the concept around 'more secure' with why this could be and most likely is not the case. Can it be more secure, perhaps, is it? The reality is a bit less than people realize and could open the door to more risk.
