Workspot offers secure access to workplace data on personal devices
Mobile workforces present a number of challenges in terms of accessing data and keeping it secure. Mobile solutions company Workspot believes it has a new approach to enterprise mobility with its Workspace as a Service solution.
Workspot Enterprise supports Windows, Android and iOS access and allows users to get to their work desktop applications and work files from any PC or mobile device via the Workspot app.
It's a cloud-based service, users install a Workspot client on their PC and after entering their PIN, all their desktop applications and workspace files are made available through the service. Workspot's solution integrates the VPN, app, data and browsing for the end-user allowing them secure access to their work from anywhere in the world.
Companies benefit too as they can instantly beam new files and applications to users' devices through the app, allowing employees to be effective and up to date whether working in the office, on the road or from home and on any device. IT administrators can manage their entire workforce, regardless of device, and grant remote access to applications from a single pane interface.
"Workspot's goal is to make the enterprise completely mobile, and the launch of our PC application marks a major accomplishment toward this objective," says Amitabh Sinha, CEO and co-founder of Workspot. "Cloud-based Workspace as a Service solutions are essential for the modern enterprise, and over 95 percent of devices that users work from are Windows-based. The Workspot client for Windows provides a way for the vast majority of employees around the world to securely access their documents and data wherever they are, no matter whether it’s a company-managed or personal PC".
