CORPORATE VISION / Issue 6 2019 51 , Nov18559 Syncing Safely Remote working is no longer a thing of the future, but how canwe ensure that our online safety is not being compromised? This is where innovative firm, SyncDog Inc, comes into play. With todays’ digital age in full swing, mobile working is becoming common- place and almost all companies today have employees who want or need the ability to work outside the four walls of the organisation. However, the current mobile security solutions being uti- lised today still have them tethered to their laptop and office. The latest GSMA Intelligence report predicts North America will reach 300 million mobile sub- scribers in 2018. More employ- ees than ever now are working remotely, and this is the new norm. More than ever, employ- ees need a secure mobile app experience that is as good as the end-user app experience they get while working in the office on their desktop or laptop. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is creating great challenges for IT departments worldwide as enterprises try to continue to deliver workflows as good as in the office on their mobile devices. And, as security increases farther away from the data centre, so too does a favourable end-user app experience. “This trend is a huge challenge for IT departments when it comes to managing devices, data protection and most importantly, security,” explains Jonas Gyllens- vaan, SyncDog’s Chief Executive Officer and Founder. “Companies need a solution which is simple and flexible, both in terms of roll- out and everyday maintenance, and one which can be adapted to various types of terminal devices and infrastructures. “While it’s important that en- terprise data can be accessed quickly from mobile devices, these devices are also in- creasingly targeted by hackers because of their limited security. Furthermore, mobile devices can be lost or stolen, and it is critical for companies to prevent the wrong people from accessing their data and other intellectual property. As long as employees have a need to conduct work business on personal devices, security risk will remain high.” SyncDog’s SaaS platform, Se- cure.Systems™, provides a se- cure DLP application workspace for employees accessing enter- prise mobile productivity apps on BYOD or CYOD (Choose Your Own Device) technologies. “Employees should be able to do their work from wherever they are,” continues Jonas. “Our Secure.System solution easily integrates into existing endpoint management solutions and can be deployed from the cloud, on-premise or as a hybrid deployment.” SyncDog combines a suite of of- fice applications (email, calendar, contacts, office editor, file share, location services, messaging etc) along with an architecture that protects and secures your mobile workforce through FIPS 140-2, AES 256 bit encryption that finally removes the technological struggle of having to choose between increased security or increased productivity. In short, SyncDog enables users to have both. “SyncDog challenges the status quo and changes the game on how organisations empower their mobile workforce,” he contin- ues. “We enable companies to reset expectations on how their employees can get work done on the go.” The platform is a containerised application that companies can deploy over the cloud, on-prem- ise, or a combination of both, to employee’s devices to ensure security and convenience for remote employees. “We also recognise that compa- nies need to flex to confidently leverage talent over a diverse geography and our solution provides a secure approach to an integrated workforce,” Jonas embellishes. “A single instance of our Secure.Systems solution can be utilised across your mobile workforce as well as third party contractors and consultants.” Jonas is an information tech- nology leader with a career that reflects entrepreneurial vision and development. He has achieved ongoing success in the enterprise mobility space, having founded and sold two highly suc- cessful mobility start-ups. As an advisor to other businesses, he understands the intersection be- tween technology and business that drives growth and positive performance outcomes. Jonas’ work involves engaging with executive leaders, technologists, and others to introduce ideas and implement transformative projects. He has worked in over a dozen countries to introduce strategies and tools to facilitate improved operations for both public and private entities, as well as government agencies. “We just want to continue to ensure an easy and secure mobile work environment for all organizations!”
