Cut BYOD Costs Using Virtual Mobile Infrastructure - VMI

  1. 1. Most Secure and Cost effective Way to Protect Mobile Data Cut BYOD Costs with Virtual Mobile Infrastructure (VMI)
  2. 2. BYOD Access Is a Reality 95% of organizations allow employee-owned devices “in some way shape or form”1 44% of job seekers prefer employers that support BYOD policies2 $950 - $3,150 per U.S. employee per year can be saved by implementing a BYOD program through increased productivity3 1 Cisco IBSG Horizons Study 2 3 Dell Global BYOD Survey 2013 4 Ovum Multi-Market BYOD Survey 2013
  3. 3. Mobile Devices Introduce Risk Insider Abuse Accidental Data Exposure Cyber Attack Physical Theft
  4. 4. VDI Isn’t the Solution for BYOD Expensive VDI Shortcomings PC apps not suited for touch input or mobile screen sizes VDI = $700/user/year Citrix + MS CAL Not designed for cellular edge, 3G networks 1 Microsoft Desktop OS $187 per user, Citrix $100 per user Requires High Bandwidth Designed for Windows
  5. 5. A VDI deployment will need 4 different Licenses. Microsoft OS License $10,000 Per/server SQL Server, Windows 2012 Server Citrix/VMWare VDI License fees $300+/user Multiple Annual fees Microsoft RDP/RDSH License $170/user $100/VDA Expensive storage, Hardware and IT budgets
  6. 6. VDI was never designed for Mobile Average cost of VDI is above $1000/user Depends on MDM, Anti- virus for Security. Wastes bandwidth. VDI was for LAN, not for 2G/3G/4G
  7. 7. Cut BYOD budget by 90% with VMI RDSH VDI Server Hardware $100K $175K Microsoft OS $50K $100K Microsoft CAL $171K $100K VDI (Citrix/VMWare) $300K $300K Storage/Network /IT etc $250K $300K Per-User $870 $1000 Typical 1000 user deployment. • Android has no per user license • Much lower hardware needs • Easy to deploy with minimal IT changes VMI Advantages
