  • Case Study #1: Remote Mobile Workers
    Business Challenge
    Estimates of 40% of employees unable to come into the office at the peak of this year’s winter flu season due to H1N1 pandemic
    Significant productivity losses will occur for those companies unable to support at-home workers during this flu season
    Purchasing new laptops and/or netbooks for all employees who currently use a desktop was both cost prohibitive and operationally inefficient.
    Desktop Virtualization Solution
    Transform home PCs into enterprise desktop computers by deploying vDesk virtual workspaces on portable encrypted USB drives
    Leveraging best practices for remote access and security including endpoint security enforcement (VPN, Antivirus, Firewall, Anti-spyware) and policy controls (Domain join, GPOs, OS patch level checks) enabled both inside and out the vDesk workspace
