LONDON & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--1E, the global leader in IT efficiency software, today announced the release of "Mobilizing Your Workforce – Bring your own PC (BYOPC) without the Risks". The e-book explores the increasing demand for BYOPC, along with best practices and the profound impact that improved BYOPC policies and security measures will have on companies as this movement gains additional traction.
According to a Regus Global Economic Indicator, 48 percent of business managers worldwide work remotely for at least half their work week, though Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)—long promoted as the solution for home/remote workers—is still not widely deployed throughout organizations.
Recognizing this need, 1E recently launched MyWorkNow, a client-hosted virtual desktop (CHVD) solution that provides a secure, fast and low-cost solution for mobilizing a workforce. MyWorkNow uses a virtualization model, where the virtual desktop runs locally on the host PC, allowing it to run completely offline. By using the enterprise’s chosen desktop management framework, such as Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), MyWorkNow eliminates the need for additional central infrastructure.
With analysis of the great expectations and disappointing reality of VDI, an outline of the BYOPC security challenges and an exploration of the steps to successful BYOPC, the e-book investigates why it is now more imperative than ever for companies to stay ahead of the technology curve and implement a solid BYOPC policy.
"While today’s workforce is demanding a more flexible environment, organizations need to provide solutions that satisfy employees while not compromising the organization’s security concerns," said Sumir Karayi, CEO of 1E. "In order to successfully and securely implement BYOPC across their organizations, IT departments need to deliver the same secured operating environment to employee-owned devices, but without the hardware requirements, so the operating environment can be wiped out remotely and leave nothing behind on the employee’s device. This incremental shift to implementing a BYOPC policy is expected to reduce support expenses in the long term as IT departments continue to focus on driving down costs.”
1E is changing the world of IT and empowering organizations to run IT for less. Its suite of disruptive IT operations management tools save billions, solve problems and simplify the management of large, complex IT environments – in record time. Designed with a singular focus to help drive down costs, 1E’s solutions include tools for IT asset management, Windows systems management and BYOPC.
