HQ RIO Notice to Individual Reserve Airmen

BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --

Air Force Reserve Command has implemented Desktop as a Service also known as Desktop Anywhere to help Reserve Citizen Airmen access critical applications on their personal computer (PC). Whether on a PC, Mac or Chromebook, Desktop Anywhere will provide Airmen 24/7 secure access to military applications on a user’s personal computer using the same look and feel of their computer at their desk on base.

The Desktop Anywhere application is completely isolated from the rest of the data on a PC. It replicates the Air Force desktop environment without downloading or uploading anything from the user’s computer.

The system will provide mobile accessibility with CAC readers for Win­dows, Mac and Chromebook computers. Members using their phones will be able to use a “virtual CAC” enabled for phones running iOS and Android.

Desktop Anywhere integrates telephony, data, applications video/audio conferencing and security to the mobile workforce in a fast, flexible and simple environment.
