In 48 Hours, Netrix Enables Financial Services Firm to Collaborate Remotely

The Client

Our client had an all-too-familiar need: Get its workforce working remotely as soon as possible.  We implemented a secure and effective solution.

The Challenge

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our client, a financial services company, had an immediate need to get its employees working from home. Staff needed to be able to collaborate and communicate online seamlessly without sacrificing security. 

The client wanted to be assured that the solution was not a quick fix that would need expensive replacement or maintenance in the near future. 

The Solution

We implemented a Windows Virtual Desktop infrastructure and created a brand new Microsoft Azure tenant that could cover all of our client’s users.

Security and privacy are built into the Azure platform. Azure offers comprehensive compliance coverage—including meeting the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

As a Microsoft Gold Partner, Netrix is well positioned to deploy the Azure solution in a way that ensures our client gets the most out of its use. 

The Azure tenant was configured to run in the Citrix Cloud. 

The Result

The order came in Saturday and our solution was serving 50 employees working from home by Monday. All the client’s 50 users were able to run their core business applications and the Office Suite. 

 As it was done with Azure, Microsoft’s cloud-based platform, the client receives automatic system updates from Microsoft, ensuring that they’re always current. Yep, that’s a future-proof solution.

Our client’s employees were able to begin working from home with virtually no interruption. All the while the company’s privacy and security are maintained.
