Microsoft has this week announced an extended partnership with TruGrid, a company that works with Redmond for remote desktop tools. Together, the collaboration has unveiled a furthering of the relationship.

Specifically, the companies have entered a licensing agreement for TruGrid to access Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).

“This partnership combines Microsoft’s cutting-edge technology and TruGrid’s innovative approach to connectivity and solutions based on Azure,” said Micky Minhas, head of Microsoft Technology Licensing. “This deal is an example of the ways we can help partners around the world meet their customers’ evolving business needs in the cloud.”

TruGrid already uses Remote Desktop Services (RDS) to simplify desktop integration through network access to Enterprise Workspaces. The company provides integrated cloud and security scalable across remote connections.

Through the expansion with Microsoft, TruGrid will now be able to access Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) into its Simple & Secure Workspace platform. The company hosts the solution in Microsoft Azure and the RDP integration brings an easy way to secure access solutions for cloud-based business.

Expanding the License

Microsoft yesterday announced that they have entered into a license agreement with TruGrid to enable access to Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) technology for TruGrid’s Simple & Secure Workspace, hosted in Microsoft Azure. The partnership will offer customers with simple yet secure access solutions to do business in the digital marketplace.

“This agreement with Microsoft enables TruGrid to enhance Microsoft RDP to support and secure millions of simultaneous connections via our integration with the Microsoft Azure Cloud,” said Peter Ayedun, CEO of TruGrid.

Remote Desktop was launched in 2016 and is described as: “The Microsoft Remote Desktop app is designed to help you get your work done wherever you are. You can connect to remote Windows PCs or resources made available to you by your admin and be productive as if these resources were running locally.”
