Achieving Greater TCO Benefits Using a Secure Workspace Solution: Comparing TCO for Three Telework Approaches

An increasingly common trend in commercial organizations and government agencies of all sizes is “telework” – enabling employees and contractors to work remotely on a part-time or full-time basis. These teleworking employees and contractors need:

• A reliable and secure work experience when away from the corporate office and when working on their personal or home computers.

• The environment needs to mimic the in-office experience to the greatest extent
possible in order to enhance remote workers’ productivity.

• The environment must minimize or eliminate the potential for data leaks or other inadvertent loss of data to maximize the security of the sensitive and confidential information with which employees work.

• Finally, the solution must be as inexpensive as possible for IT to configure,
deploy and manage.
