A BLUEPRINT FOR SECURE MOBILE WORKSPACES: What Organizations Need to Consider when Implementing a Secure Mobile Workspace Strategy

The concept of “remote work”, or teleworking, has become an increasingly important concept for organizations attempting to become more flexible and agile, while driving down costs. IDC reports that there are 1.3 billion mobile workers today; that number is expected to grow to 1.6 billion by 2015.

This whitepaper examines how enterprises can deploy the Secure Mobile Workspace, or “PC on a Stick” portable desktops. With the advent of Windows To Go as a feature of Windows 8, this emerging “bootable USB workspace” category holds the promise of allowing an IT organization to embrace worker mobility, workplace agility and “bring your own device” (BYOD) – while safeguarding data and network access with more granularity and security than with a corporate provided computer.
