DesktopDirect solutions provides Mimeo’s workforce flexible and secure remote and mobile access with little IT intervention
MILPITAS, CA – November 14, 2012 – Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application mobility, security and performance, today announced that Mimeo, an on-demand digital printing company, has deployed Array’s DesktopDirect remote desktop appliance. As Mimeo’s workforce increasingly brings smart phones and tablets to work or uses their own mobile devices to access desktop applications remotely, the company needed a secure and customizable remote and mobile access solution to provide BYOD support to the workforce.
With DesktopDirect, Mimeo has expanded the security and breadth of its remote access solutions. Mimeo’s workforce uses the appliance to seamlessly access physical and virtual office desktops from any device, including Android and iOS mobile devices as well as Windows and Macintosh PCs. Mimeo’s top executives can now access business reports, while the sales team can access the primary customer relationship management tool from any device, allowing employees to work, even when they can’t get to the office.
Mimeo’s previous VPN solution did not provide the flexibility or reliability of DesktopDirect. With DesktopDirect, Mimeo’s workforce achieves full remote access with support for almost any device. As a corporate owned, appliance-based remote desktop access solution, DesktopDirect enables secure access to office PCs or virtual desktops without the risk of data leakage or risk of malicious attack. DesktopDirect empowers Mimeo’s employees to attain maximum productivity as they utilize the solution in the way that best fits their needs – whether accessing a virtual desktop from an iPad in the office or simply accessing their office computer from a home PC device after hours and on weekends.
“DesktopDirect’s multisite scalability allows users to quickly and easily access to the closest geographic location” says Shawn Winters, director of IT Operations. “If employees cannot access New York, they are automatically routed to Memphis, the UK, New Jersey or the Tennessee locations without any IT interference. DesktopDirect’s ease of use and seamless upgrades separate the appliance from other vendors’ implementations. Our staff is thrilled with the remote access support DesktopDirect has allowed us to provide.”
“We recognize the trend of BYOD and are excited to provide a customizable solution that can provide remote and mobile access to all levels of Mimeo’s workforce” says Lior Rapaport, vice president of Mobility for Array Networks. “DesktopDirect allows Mimeo employees to access the desktop applications they need, when and how they need them.”
