DesktopDirect solution improves employee productivity and job satisfaction by enabling tablet access to office applications without the risk of data leakage
MILPITAS, CA–August 22, 2012– Array Networks Inc., (TWO: 3664) a global leader in application, desktop and cloud service delivery, today announced that Travis County in central Texas has deployed Array’s DesktopDirect remote desktop access solution to increase productivity and address growing demand from employees to work from anywhere via personal tablets and smart phones (BYOD). Using the Array solution, Travis County is able to publish essential information and applications to tablets without the risk of data leakage—greatly improving productivity and job satisfaction for county employees.
With DesktopDirect, IT maintains full control of corporate data while employees are able to choose their own mobile and remote access devices, including Android and iOS mobile devices as well as Windows and Macintosh PCs. Providing a secure window to office desktops from non-work computers and mobile devices, DesktopDirect allows Travis County to prevent business data from mixing with personal data and disallows sensitive data from residing on devices out of the control of central IT. Moreover, because the DesktopDirect mobile app can be launched from any iOS or Android device, Travis County does not need to support specific devices, platforms or software versions.
Leveraging DesktopDirect, Travis County is able to provide secure mobile access to physical desktop PCs and laptops. Workstations, desktop PCs and laptops—whether powered up during work days or powered down at night or on weekends—can be activated remotely to enable anytime, anywhere access to business resources.
“With DesktopDirect, our county employees can connect to their office computers from any mobile or remote device and have access to all of the files and programs they need to be productive,” said John Stark, division manager at Travis County. “The people who have used it really like it. For example, our IT folks no longer need to go to the office to fix issues on the weekend. In addition, being fully confident about security makes the Array solution easy to justify.”
“We are delighted to see Travis County using DesktopDirect to provide secure mobile access to productivity-enhancing applications,” said Lior Rapaport, vice president of mobility for Array Networks. “Their ability to isolate the network from outside threats while providing full access to applications is a textbook example of how to use DesktopDirect to support mobile access and BYOD.”
