Venn Partners with Ekran System to Further Enhance Remote Work Security and Productivity on BYO Laptops

New York, September 15, 2023 — Venn, innovators of the first purpose-built technology for Secure BYO-PC, is excited to announce a partnership with Ekran System a recognized cybersecurity software vendor delivering a full-cycle insider risk management platform. Remote and hybrid work have become a permanent part of most organizations. The integration provides a powerful remote work security solution for companies who want to embrace BYOD laptops (BYO-PC) without sacrificing security, performance, or fundamental control over your organization’s data and applications.

With Venn, work lives in a company-controlled Secure Enclave installed on the user’s PC or Mac, where business activity is isolated and protected from any personal use on the same computer. When integrated with Ekran, organizations can monitor employee productivity for applications opened inside the Venn Secure Enclave, whereas personal applications and data are kept private. This unique integrated solution is tailored for BYO use cases, where user privacy in their personal space is essential to reduce friction and accelerate adoption, while the Secure Enclave is being monitored as usual.

Many companies are embracing a blended workforce that includes remote employees, third-party contractors, and offshore workers. IT and security teams are tired of shipping laptops or relying on complex and costly virtual desktop technology to support remote workers and stay compliant.

With Venn, remote work can now easily be secured on any BYOD or unmanaged computer while giving IT more control, without the backend infrastructure. As we talked with customers, it became clear that they wanted to find ways to monitor user activity to ensure their remote teams were both secure and productive. This partnership with Ekran addresses the needs of our customers.

Benefits of the integration include:

  • Secure and private workspace on BYOD laptops
  • Real-time user activity monitoring.
  • Centralized administrative controls
  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA)
  • Alerts and incident response
  • Security incident investigation
  • Compliance-focused features

About Venn

Venn is the first purpose-built patented technology for Secure BYO-PC. Venn secures remote work on any unmanaged or BYOD computer with a radically simplified and less costly solution than virtual desktops or having to lock down every PC. Similar to an MDM solution but for laptops – work lives in a company-controlled Secure Enclave installed on the user’s PC or Mac, where all data is encrypted and access is managed.

Work applications run locally within the enclave – visually indicated by the Blue Border™ – where business activity is isolated and protected from any personal use on the same computer. Company data is now protected without having to control the entire device, and as a result, remote work is secured without the cost, complexity and performance issues of VDI. As happened in the past with mobile phones, employees want to use their preferred computer – not have one for work and one for personal – while companies are eager for ways to avoid buying, shipping and locking down computers.

With Venn, Secure BYO-PC technology is now a reality. Over 700 security and compliance-driven organizations, including Fidelity, Guardian, and Voya, trust Venn to meet FINRA, SEC, NAIC, and SOC 2 standards. To learn more, visit venn.com
