In the ever-evolving landscape of remote work, where flexibility and efficiency reign supreme, organizations grapple with the challenge of balancing accessibility and flexibility with security. We recently spoke with a healthcare services organization with a large distributed organization. They have a large number of remote and traveling employees as well as many contractors. The company found themselves at a crossroads for securing remote work. 

The Landscape: A Quest for Efficiency and Security

This healthcare services company has clinics scattered across the United States. They have a diverse team that keeps getting bigger. They struggled with buying, setting up, and managing laptops, as well as making sure equipment was ready to use. Also, the organization’s focus on security and following healthcare regulations like HIPAA made their operations more complicated.

Due to acquisitions and growth, there is variability in how some of their clinics operate. The majority of their users need to access SaaS based apps, Office 365, Sharepoint and One Drive. For contractors, they were also using VDI which was really expensive so they were looking to pursue a BYOD model. Their goal was to transition away from company owned devices and make efforts to be more accommodating to new employees who wish to use their own devices and work in their preferred manner. Simultaneously, they need to exert greater control over their security and networks and offer improved alternatives for the company.

A Plan Emerges: Secure BYOPC Transformation

Venn’s approach to Secure Bring Your Own -PC (BYO-PC) presented a paradigm shift in how they could implement remote work security. With approximately 2000 users, they would work through a plan to phase out their managed hardware and as things retire, they could provide a stipend system so users could choose their device of choice. Overall, with Secure BYO-PC transformation, it would provide them with a simpler secure solution that provided the cost effectiveness they needed to scale faster.
