Like many organizations in the recent past, Kramp experienced a rapid change from a situation where users were located in the office and always connected to the corporate network to one where users began working from home and other locations — a scenario we refer to as the Everywhere Workplace™.
Following this period of rapid change, Kramp found it difficult to connect to these remote devices, to keep them updated and to maintain user productivity. By adding Ivanti® Cloud Relay to the existing Ivanti Workspace Control environment, Kramp can now communicate with these remote endpoints as though they were located in the office.
Kramp workers can now use secure devices
As long as users’ managed devices are connected to the internet, new configurations and security rules are applied immediately. A consistent environment is maintained across any location or device. Because devices now behave as if connected to the office network, IT response time is faster and the user experience is better overall.
Kramp’s IT organization also benefits from the Ivanti Cloud Relay. Specifically, remote endpoints can be managed, even if they aren’t connected to the corporate network. Management actions — including for the Everywhere Workplace — are centralized, and implementation is quick and easy. The solution is intuitive and easy to use for administrators. What’s more, obtaining approval from the Security Team is much easier, as there is no requirement to open inbound firewall ports.
