As the digitalization of the workplace charges forward, the workforce of today is no longer handcuffed to their workstations, forced to utilize ageing, expensive, company-issued hardware. Rather, today’s workforce is mobile; and the ability to access company resources anywhere, at any time, and on any device is paramount.
In this case study, we consider a Unified Endpoint Management solution enabling the sales force of a Large Canadian Insurance Company (“the Company”) to be freed from the traditional workspace, allowing them to obtain full, secure access to their company applications and data using their personal devices.
Frustrated with the increasing costs of maintaining and upgrading hardware, a Large Insurance Company was searching for a solution to break away from the limitations of a closed network while still keeping a high level of control and security around their data. The Company’s sales force was similarly frustrated; forced to utilize ageing hardware, they needed a solution that allowed them to access company resources anywhere, at any time, on any platform.
Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) is a solution designed to secure, manage and update all corporate data across devices. Traditionally, a company would require an MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution to manage PCs and mobile devices in order to provide security and control; an EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) solution to manage desktops, laptops, and push policies; and finally a CMT (Client Management Tool) to update, maintain, and manage inventory. UEM encompasses these features and provides one unified console to manage, authenticate, control, secure and audit all device types. This approach helps reduce IT overhead while providing better security and minimizing oversight.
StrataPrime worked alongside the Company – supporting them in their requirements definition, solution selection process, as well as conducted cost, security, and integration evaluations.
We believe that Cloud workplace tools are the foundation for collaboration and productivity. Using our partnerships, StrataPrime can offer platforms that provide best-in-class solutions for messaging, documents, storage, collaboration, mobility, and identity management.
In a short period of time, StrataPrime was able to design, create an architecture for, and implement a complete UEM solution that coexisted with their existing infrastructure, allowing the Company to securely deploy endpoint assets as well as protect corporate data on any platform.
