Amazon WorkSpaces Web Access

Users can access their WorkSpaces from any location using a web browser. This is ideal for users who must use a locked-down device or restrictive network. Instead of using a traditional remote access solution and installing the appropriate client application, users can visit the website to access their work resources.
