Bahrain Bourse, a self-regulated multi-asset marketplace, has adopted Amazon WorkSpaces, a managed, secure desktop-as-a-service solution, to improve business continuity, operational agility, and resilience.
According to the company statement, “With Amazon WorkSpaces, Bahrain Bourse can provide a secure, managed, cloud-based virtual desktop to its employees that is accessible from anywhere, anytime.”
Further, Bahrain Bourse has completely leveraged and adapted the workspace to replicate its disaster recovery (DR) site, including all of its functionality and features, in order to maintain business continuity at all times. Amazon WorkSpaces is deployed in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), with a secure login, and its services are available 24×7 to serve its purpose efficiently.
“The past two years have reshaped the way capital markets firms operate. As Bahrain Bourse, we are always keen to discover new opportunities and rethink our operating models to increase efficiency, strengthen security, and provide unwavering business continuity to our employees and investors. We understand the importance of adapting and embedding reliable, secure, and innovative solutions to maintain communication, collaboration, and productivity in an unprecedented time.”
Mr. Vinod Krishnan, Head of the Middle East and North Africa at AWS said, “It’s great to see how Bahrain Bourse is leveraging Amazon WorkSpaces to be more flexible and equipped to respond to changing business needs. The ability for organizations to change where and how their workforce gets the job done is more important than ever.”
“Amazon WorkSpaces gives organizations the ability to scale up and down in minutes as their needs change, on almost any device, so their end users can get the job done anywhere, and at any time, securely and reliably,” Mr. Krishnan further added.
Amazon WorkSpaces is a fully managed, persistent desktop virtualization service that lets users access data, applications, and resources from any device that supports it. The service reduces expenses tied to on-premises solutions such as onsite hardware and building costs, physical security, and server technicians required for storage, backup, and disaster recovery.
