Baker Tilly, a leading firm of accountants and business advisers in the British Virgin Islands, provides international clients with a variety of services including auditing, accounting, and taxation. Eighty percent of Baker Tilly’s workforce of tax advisors, auditors, managers, and others work in the field.
Baker Tilly employees were using BlackBerry devices to check work email, calendars, and contacts. And while there are still some BlackBerry users, many workers wanted to use iOS or Android devices. Due to strict internal security policies, Baker Tilly had to find a solution that would protect confidential information on non-BlackBerry devices and allow employees to continue to be productive out in the field.
Baker Tilly chose Citrix XenMobile and, in particular, Citrix WorxMail because of the rich features that let workers perform a variety of tasks on their mobile phones, on both personal and managed devices. Previously, some workers were relying on their laptops to finish tasks. Baker Tilly’s IT department has found XenMobile easy to install and manage on a daily basis. It’s easy, for example, to shut off access and secure data if employees lose or misplace their phones. “We needed to find a solution that would help us prevent information from walking out the door. XenMobile was the right solution for us,” says IT manager Norman Allen.
XenMobile makes it simple for iOS and Android users to enroll their mobile devices and quickly get up and running with WorxMail, to stay on top of appointments with its secure calendaring features.
Baker Tilly’s employees are constantly meeting with clients in the field, and they now have the tools they need to accomplish work on their mobile devices rather than waiting to use their laptops back at the office. The result? A noticeable increase in productivity.
Like many financial services organizations, Baker Tilly has strict security policies. It now has a mobile solution that is user-friendly and protects company information including email. With the end-to-end security of XenMobile, which includes encryption of data on devices and in transit, Baker Tilly is much more confident that its data is secure.
To continue to drive worker productivity, Baker Tilly’s team is actively looking at Citrix ShareFile to help employees securely access their files, including email attachments, from their mobile phones.
