Speed-to-market starts with you: Your workforce is accelerating through each and every day. Is your business empowering employees with the best mobility solutions – or slowing them down?
Workforce mobility is one of the hottest trends in enterprise today, and there’s a reason why. Today’s employees are digitally savvy and want fast, frictionless access to the best tools; to collaborate easily effectively with all their partners; and to work remotely at least part of the time.
The BYOD (bring your own device) revolution has been won by workers, and there is no turning back. IT directors and teams must support employees’ mobile workstyles and continually enhance the user experience (UX).
Employees are working everywhere, and they’re using more devices than ever – up to 5 devices apiece on the job. BYOD tools help employees and their companies be more productive: U.S. workers save more than 81 minutes a week by using their own devices. That’s a boon to companies seeking to speed up business results in the digital transformation era.
Accelerating your Windows 10 migration can help you achieve mobility and business goals – and secure the enterprise. In an era of WannaCry, Petya, and more, IT directors know that running older operating systems is opening the door to a world of cyber risks. It just makes common and (cyber) sense to be on the most powerful, secure Windows platform ever.
If you haven’t gone mobile-first with AnywhereApp and Windows 10, now is the time to do so. Here’s why:
- Today’s workers consider mobility in their job decisions; AnywhereApp and Windows 10 empower them.
Mobility makes great sense for workers in a wide range of situations: Road warriors; employees with families; digital nomads; and top talent, partners, and contractors who work offsite all need access to your data, apps, and systems. In the U.S., nearly 1 in 3 employees work remotely four to five days a week, and 2 in 3 Millennials said remote working options would increase their interest in a company.
Digitally wired workers bring an Amazon mentality to work, compelling B2B companies to emulate this digital leader’s one-click ordering, personalization, and rich resources.
Give your workers the best mobility experience with virtualized Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) offerings that deliver near-native performance with sub-millisecond latency, a smooth and seamless experience across devices, and no bugs. For IT leaders and teams, AnywhereApp provides one-click provisioning to virtualized applications, desktops, virtual machines, storage, desktop image management, compute and network components, and anti-virus/security solutions. Get cost predictability for budgeting purposes, with services billed on a per-user, per-month basis.
Windows 10 enables workers to access all their apps and data from any device and access great productivity resources, including Office 365, with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, and Exchange, and OneDrive for Business. Employees value collaboration tools like Skype for Business, SharePoint, and Yammer. Scale and grow – adding new users, businesses, and geographies. Work, collaborate, and create without limits.
- Poorly managed BYOD programs can increase data and device risk; AnywhereApp and Windows 10 secure the enterprise.
As users, devices, and endpoints increase, enterprises are rethinking their approach to cloud security and seeking new ways to strengthen controls. MTM Technologies, Inc.’s AnywhereApp provides rapid provisioning and identity and access (IAM) management to add, change, or move end-users. Onboard, offboard, and determine who sees what, when, where, and how, with single-interface control over user access, authentication, and control. Protect corporate data from unauthorized diversion, such as the 1 in 2 departing employees who would seek to take it with them.
Handle the mobile BYOD explosion by supporting different device types and keeping data where it belongs – in the cloud or physical data center. If devices are lost or stolen, confidential data is not at risk. Since more than 4 in 5 companies have already experienced a data breach, it makes sense to increase data safeguards now.
Bolster enterprise security with Windows 10, the most trusted platform, and protect your firm from costly cyber breaches which cost $3.62 million per incident in cleanup costs. Move from passwords to biometrics with IAM to add another layer of security, run only trusted software, isolate browser sessions in “micro-virtualized environments,” and use automatic encryption to protect data as it travels across networks and endpoints. Leverage the best behavioral, cloud, and human threat intelligence with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection to quickly identify compromised devices and isolate and remediate them before they can access networks. Remember WannaCry? Businesses on Windows 10 didn’t hear a sound.

- Focus on mobilizing your business; let AnywhereApp handle the nuts and bolts of enabling your workers.
AnywhereApp enables companies to manage BYOD programs securely, authorizing connected devices, including our preferred solution IGEL thin-client devices, and providing one-click secured and encrypted access to virtual workspaces based on Citrix XenApp.
More companies are embracing virtualization to tame the chaos of end-user computing, consolidating their portfolio, reducing spend, and provision resources with one click of a button. However, MTM Technologies, Inc. and AnywhereApp also support physical server environments, enabling companies to maximize investments and plan their cloud migration at their own pace.
Let AnywhereApp help you create a mobility plan and roadmap. Join us at our Taming the Chaos of Enabling a Mobile Workforce webinar on Thursday September 14 and September 28 at 11:00 AM EST.
MTM Technologies workforce mobilization expert Bill Kleyman will take an IT leader-focused look at designing a customized digital workspace that significantly reduces the complexity of enabling a mobile-first workforce. Sign up today for the workforce mobility webinar – and use Windows 10 to accelerate your business results.
