Samtec: Charting a Mobile Enterprise Transformation
Samuel Jud, Founder & CEO
Enterprise mobility as the next frontier of digitalization has redefined connectivity and collaboration within the modern day corporate landscape. The widespread adoption of mobiles, tablets, and laptops across a vast section of location-independent collaborative environments has significantly transformed the functional dynamics of businesses worldwide. The mobility model has proven to be remarkably effective in improving communication and cognizant of connecting with the millennial workforce. The downside; a multitude of organizations being highly overwhelmed by a series of regulatory, compliance, security, policy and legacy technology constraints that limit the potential of mobility. In the state of this complexity, samtec stands apart as a reliable mobility partner guiding these organizations to traverse beyond these constraints and attain a constructive mobility environment. Samuel Jud, Managing Director of samtec, says, “The most significant aspect of our mobility solutions is that they are built around the factors of reinforcing security and enhancing the productivity of our clients.”
samtec has developed an innovative model to capture all the client requisites concerning their mobility strategy. Elaborating upon the company’s unique approach to understanding their clients, Jud emphasizes on samtec’s proprietary “mobility workshops” where the company presents formatted questionnaires to their client’s management and the compliance teams.
The questionnaire covers the various configuration aspects of the enterprise mobility model that the client would like to see implemented. Based on the response to the questionnaires, samtec designs the appropriate solution draft for the client with the suitable range of products that comply with all the regulatory standards. This concept will be adjusted in cooperation with the client to form a suitable solution design.
Forging strong partner alliances, samtec brings an advanced level of eminence in complying with all the crucial parameters for a successful enterprise mobility implementation. Backed by the expertise of some of the most renowned names in software technology space such as BlackBerry, VMware, and Zimperium, samtec’s mobility suite comprises device management, entitlement management, containerization, app tunnelling, data encryption solutions and mobile threat detection. Complementing these solutions, samtec offers an exclusive portfolio of collaborative product range namely BlackBerry Unified Endpoint Management, BlackBerry enterprise mobility suite, Airwatch Enterprise mobility Platform and Zimperium Protection. To ensure the security and data protection of its clients, samtec leverages Zimperium Protection. samtec offers BlackBerry’s unified endpoint management tool to optimize the endpoint security for the BYOD ownership models within the client’s environment. Likewise, for ensuring the secured sharing of an important business file, the company leverages the 'BlackBerry Workspaces' which is an enterprise files 'sync and share' solution. The tool is equipped with the Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection which provides advanced control over sharing of a file and its access, even after it leaves the clients infrastructure.
Bringing to the fore one of the success stories that spurred as an outcome of samtec’s mobility workshops and partnership programs, Jud shares the case study of Jumbo; one of the leading retail companies in Switzerland. A significant number of Jumbo’s employees were using BYOD ownership model on their devices which raised concerns about the security of information and communication. samtec, being the mobility partner, realized the gravity of ensuring a high safety standard that can protect the company’s sensitive data without hampering the functions of the device. samtec incorporated a unique approach to enabling that by implementing the BlackBerry Dynamics App container on employees’ devices. This application enabled the clear separation of business and personal data on the device making the sensitive data more secure and supplementing the security layer of Jumbo’s pre-installed endpoint management solution.
On samtec’s future partnership endeavors, Jud says, “Over the time, we have achieved success alongside our partners, and we plan to continue on that trajectory by bringing in more solutions that will complement the productivity and security of our clients in the long run.”
