  • Segregate and secure customers’ financial data
  • Avoid local storage of customers' financial data
  • Ensure business continuity during pandemics or other disasters

Solution

  • Provisioned virtual desktops in the cloud using Amazon WorkSpaces—each desktop dedicated to one customer
  • Gave employees ultra-secure PCoIP Zero Clients to securely log in to virtual desktops
  • Immediately distributed low-cost Chromebooks when COVID-19 lockdown began so employees could access virtual desktops from home
  • Supplemented Chromebooks with a zero client for home use, for higher security and multi-monitor support

Results

  • Seamlessly transitioned to working from home during COVID-19 pandemic
  • Simplified IT by avoiding the need for a VPN and on-site service calls
