OTTAWA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tehama, the fastest, easiest, most secure way to deploy a virtual workforce, announced today that, due to overwhelming demand in view of the Coronavirus pandemic, the company is offering a new Pay-As-You-Go service to streamline the process of enabling employees to work from home.
With the cloud-based Tehama virtual work platform, everything is SaaS; there’s no infrastructure to install, no laptops to ship, no networks to retool. Onboarding remote workers anywhere in the world can be done in under an hour, with multi-level security, activity monitoring, and a complete audit trail for every virtual desktop.
Tehama’s new Pay-As-You-Go service adds even more simplicity and removes even more risk. There is no minimum amount required to get started, no term, no professional services needed, and the service can be canceled at any time. Billing is monthly. New customers can simply select the Tehama Room type, then the number of Virtual Desktops per Room, and the Support package. Virtual Rooms and Desktops can be added or removed at any time.
“We’re in the midst of a global health crisis, people need to work from home immediately, and so Tehama is stepping in to help with a no-commitment, no-hassle Pay-As-You-Go service,” said Paul Vallée, CEO, Tehama. “Our mission is to make it faster, easier, and less risky for companies to enable their workforce to go remote. Tehama is a SaaS service, so now, with monthly billing and anytime-cancellation, when the crisis is over, the service can go away completely if the customer wants.
“But we’re confident,” added Vallée, “that once companies experience the benefits of a virtual workforce that they will continue to expand it even after the crisis is over—not only to be better prepared for the next one but also simply to be more competitive in a world where things like cost-savings, productivity, efficiency, agility, and security really do matter.”
It may seem counterintuitive that a cloud-based virtual room or desktop delivered via a SaaS model could be more secure than a laptop inside a corporate building made of bricks and protected by security guards and badge readers, but that is in fact the case. We’re told that every 53 seconds a laptop is stolen, and 41% of breaches come from stolen devices. It was in the news recently that bad actors can now use cold boot attacks to unlock encrypted disks. Privileged credential abuse is responsible for 80% of all breaches. Homeland Security warned recently of security ﬂaws in enterprise VPN applications.
Tehama uses a multi-layered approach to ensure the highest possible security. SOC 2 Type II-certified, the Tehama platform provides built-in secure perimeters, automated encryption, continuous malware protection, and network segregation. Using the platform, customers create secure virtual rooms, self-contained and complete with virtualized infrastructure and access-control policies tailored for specific roles, organizations, and geographic regions. These can be deployed to anyone, anywhere in the world, with a mouse click. From start to finish, the remote worker can be onboarded in under an hour. Once that remote worker begins to work, regulatory compliance is ensured via policy controls, activity monitoring, and deep forensic auditing.
