Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) can pose challenges for employers around security. Vital compliance standards, like PCI DSS, are at risk if agents are introducing unknown elements like personal devices into corporate environments.
Secure Remote Worker solves this problem by providing a secure, PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR compliant workspace environment on the agents’ personal devices. It provides all the benefits of BYOD around scalability, cost and onboarding, with the highest-tier endpoint lockdown security, preventing data leakage as well as providing application control.
With Secure Remote Worker and the ThinScale Management Platform, employers can quickly and easily scale their BYOD deployment based on customer and seasonal demands.
Using ThinScale's intuitive central management platform, the employer and IT can easily manage, troubleshoot and update software, profiles and security settings on their entire BYOD environment from a single console, further they can easily and quickly scale up nd down their environment as needed.
Deploying a BYOD scheme has many advantages, especially when an organization has a remote desktop or remote application solution (RDS, VDI, DaaS, etc.) in place.
An organization can reduce the capital expenditure costs linked to device purchase and delivery and provide agents with the freedom to choose the device that best suits their individual requirements.
Secure Remote Worker also reduces costs that result from the downtime associated with work at home. The Validation Tool reduces agent onboarding time from over an hour to under 10 minutes.
This along with the Single Click Installer, means that Secure Remote Worker can be installed and ready to go on agents’ personal machines almost immediately.
Embracing BYOD allows BPOs to save on costs by eliminating the need for the costly recovery/loss of these devices. BYOD solutions like Secure Remote Worker can allow for the remote uninstallation of software and applications, meaning not only are devices not causing any extra cost to the BPO, but the risk of data leakage from ex-agent machines is eliminated.
Secure Remote Worker turns a non-corporate or personal Windows device into a secure BYOD solution that allows secure remote access. With built-in location awareness, Secure Remote Worker is capable of dynamically updating permissions based on an endpoint's local network and centrally managed policies.
"The big thing for us has been how do we enforce compliance and how do we check endpoint protection? As we are doing BYOD, we want to make sure we are installing Secure Remote Worker as our key security enforcement".
