The Cloud and BYOD

Published on

DaaS has been adopted by many companies that want to gain visibility into and control over the desktop environment, while making it much more cost-effective to manage. With BYOD on the rise, DaaS is even more compelling.

RapidScale offers solutions that enable you to introduce BYOD efficiently and securely in your business. Our CloudDesktop and CloudOffice are perfect for companies that want to embrace this new way of working.

CloudDesktop virtualizes the user’s desktop, allowing your employees to connect to a fully functioning and familiar environment from any location and device. You can remain focused on your core business while everyone is connected to a virtual workspace that allows for privacy, collaboration and scalability.

CloudOffice is our secure all-in-one solution that combines our four core products and services, including CloudDesktop. This product replaces the physical IT infrastructure and moves everything into the cloud. The environment is controlled, monitored and backed up, and allows businesses to have remote workers that are equally as productive as those in the office. The product supports collaboration and mobile workforces, as well as BYOD.

Though security is often first on the list of concerns when it comes to new technology, our secure solutions will ease your worries. Even with the use of personal devices, your company data resides in a secure data center where it remains safe even if something happens to employee devices. With our solutions, your users can be controlled in a simple admin panel that gives you the ability to secure and manage your users. If a device ends up in the wrong hands, you can wipe the information and maintain control of your data. We also offer government-grade encryption for your virtual desktop, keeping your confidential data safe behind protected walls.

By 2017, half of employers will require employees to supply their own device for work, so why wait? Get on board now and begin to improve your business with BYOD.

The Cloud and BYOD

  1. 1. BYOD …and how it’s changing the world www.rapidscale.net
  2. 2. Increased productivity and innovation: Employees are more comfortable with a personal device and become expert using it — making them more productive. Personal devices tend to be more cutting-edge, so the enterprise benefits from the latest features. Also users upgrade to the latest hardware more frequently. Employee satisfaction: Your people use the devices they have chosen and invested in — rather than what was selected by IT. 83% of users considered their mobile device more important than their morning cup of coffee. Allowing employees to use personal devices also helps them avoid carrying multiple devices. Cost savings: BYOD programs sometimes save budget by shifting costs to the user, with employees paying for mobile devices and data services. However, this often results in little to no savings, so do not base your decision primarily on anticipated savings. BYOD Benefits www.rapidscale.net
  3. 3. Unavoidable: 81 percent of companies to allow BYOD by year's end So, how do YOU cash in? Source: TechRepublic BYOD business Strategy Survey, 2013
  4. 4. Length of Time BYOD is in Place BYOD isn’t a new idea in the workplace Source: TechRepublic BYOD business Strategy Survey, 2013 www.rapidscale.net
  5. 5. expect smartphones to play a “crucial role” in business productivity in two years of employers ALLOW personal devices of employees use TABLETS for both personal and business Source: The Mobility, Resources and Experts by Fiberlink, 2013 72% Of employers do not reimburse for BYOD practices
  6. 6. 34% of CIOs think employees are accessing their network with personal devices and 69% of users confirm they are indeed accessing corporate network with personal devices 94% of users would be “very frustrated” if their company wiped their personal data off their mobile device 43% would be “very unwilling” to give up the use of data- intensive apps such as Pandora or Spotify on their personal device in exchange for access to corporate information 64% of users would be “very frustrated” to have to enter enterprise passwords every time they wanted to access their favorite apps, such as Facebook RapidScale eliminates these concerns by introducing the most advanced virtual desktop that can be accessed through an individual app, eliminating the security issues of using a personal device, and giving a user freedom to choose any device they want. Source: IDC, 2013 www.rapidscale.net
  7. 7. Conduct a cost/benefit analysis while deciding how you will enable mobile and who will have access. Not determining a policy is risky: if you don't, BYOD will "just happen" without controls. RapidScale allows users to be controlled in a simple admin panel that gives an organization the ability to secure and manage its users. 71 percent of CEOs and IT managers say that security is their most significant mobile enterprise challenge. RapidScale has carefully chosen which technologies will be used to manage and secure mobile devices. A smartphone containing confidential data can be stolen or lost—putting sensitive information in the wrong hands. RapidScale gives you the ability to wipe a device that is in the wrong hands. 39 percent of organizations have already had a data breach due to an employee's or contractor's lost or stolen mobile device. Do your people understand the risks? RapidScale makes it easy to manage and control devices that fall into the wrong hands. Plus, RapidScale offers government grade encryption into our virtual desktop, keeping all your data safe behind protected walls. RapidScale makes sure that we have someone available at all times in the event you need some help. We offer 24x7x365 support, so no matter what time or what day it is, there is always someone available to talk to.

  8. 8. By 2017, HALFof employers will require employees to supply their own device for work purposes. Source: Gartner, 2013 www.rapidscale.net
  9. 9. "Bring your own device" (BYOD) drives innovation for CIOs and the business by increasing the number of mobile application users in the workforce. BYOD improves employee satisfaction, resulting in a favorable perception of CIOs and their organizations. CIOs can use BYOD as a cost reduction and avoidance mechanism. BYOD increases risks and changes expectations for CIOs. www.rapidscale.net
  10. 10. DaaS has been adopted by many companies that want to gain visibility into and control over the desktop environment, while making it much more cost-effective to manage. With BYOD on the rise, DaaS is even more compelling. RapidScale offers solutions that will enable your customers to “BYOD”. RapidScale offers two different environments for BYOD environments. • Dedicated/Customizable Environment: This is designed for 100+ user accounts with custom needs. RapidScale can virtualize all their applications and users can leverage Citrix to log into their virtual desktop on any device. • Multi-Tenant “Cloud Office” Environment: This is designed for SMB customers with basic application needs. This package includes all of the most common SMB requirements and allows users to log in via Citrix. RapidScaleDesktopasaServiceSolution
  11. 11. Quick on-boarding of new employees With a few mouse clicks, IT can provision new users to a corporate desktop and get them working right away. Enhance Security and make it easy to enforce Support the corporate desktop, not the device Company data resides in your business’ data center and not on their personal device. The corporate desktop is insulated from any viruses that attack the personal device or applications. Boost workforce productivity IT can easily support the corporate desktop from a central location and require that employees maintain support of the BYOD and any personal applications. Business applications can be accessed from anywhere, on any device. Ensure positive user experience DaaS is ideal from companies that have a distributed workforce and want to adopt BYOD.
  12. 12. BYOD Questions • Is your organization looking to refresh any devices in the next 12-24 months? • Are you having a hard time managing your employee’s devices? • Are you spending a lot of CAPex on desktop/laptop refreshes? • Would your employees be more productive if they could log into their applications from any device? • How much money is spent on maintaining desktops/laptops? • How much time is spent on break-fix? • Would you like to allocate your hardware budget to other areas in the business? • How many of your laptops/desktops get infected with viruses? www.rapidscale.net
