Bring Your Own Device – It’s an incontrovertible fact that people have fairly strong preferences when it comes to their devices. You can allow your employees to work on the devices that suit them best by utilizing a virtual desktop infrastructure that allows your corporate data and applications to be accessed securely on a variety of platforms.
Not only does Bring Your Own Device have the potential to increase employee productivity, it reduces your IT costs.
However, there are certain operational complexities and security risks that have to be contended with. At Sequential Networks, we have a variety of Bring Your Own Device solutions that can help you to take advantage of the benefits of Bring Your Own Device, while reducing the attendant risks.
Collaboration between the office and the remote employees can be significantly improved when you have a solution that’s customised to your business needs.
It’s a simple fact – your people are already bringing their own devices to work. In fact, over 95% of them do. There’s no stopping it, and you can actually make it work in your favour.
We’ll help you get your policies and infrastructure in place so that your employees can bring and use their own devices at work safely and securely.
Bring Your Own Device works for your entire organisation:
Executives/owners see an increase in productivity on the part of their employees, and customer care improves. HR can attract and then retain the best people in part by allowing them to choose the tools they prefer to work with.
IT regains control over your network and security. Finance saves money because devices no longer need to be purchased and maintained. Employees are less frustrated because they can work on their device of choice, and use it for both business and personal use.
As IT departments continue to face challenges regarding maintaining security while still empowering the end user, integrating personal devices into the company becomes a consideration that every company is finding it necessary to deal with. The current generation of devices consists of highly reliable tools, and businesses would do well to leverage them.
We partner with leading security vendors to ensure that the integrity and security of your data is maintained when it’s being delivered to Bring Your Own Device. You can be sure that your data is secure regardless of device or platform.
In cooperation with our partners, we can offer complete Bring Your Own Device service, including:

Sequential Networks identify IT departments servers are challenged by increasing demands for virtualisation-driven computer power and high-performance applications. The challenge is to provide scalable server platforms that are able to respond quickly to changes in business. Sequential Networks has solutions ranging from standalone to blade architectures that are adaptable to your individual needs.
The cornerstone of any IT infrastructure is its server. Virtualisation has resulted in servers needing more processing power and memory, reduced footprints, and simplified management. Our account managers can advise you on the technology involved, and we can create servers that are fully configured before they’re deployed. We also offer rack and power planning, performance testing, power consumption analysis, and servers IO acceleration products.
With advances in technology and reductions in cost, server solutions have become increasingly accessible to virtually any business. Solutions are available across the continuum, from small application blades to huge, cloud-based server farms.
Today, businesses find it necessary to store staggering amounts of Data Storage. Additionally, you need to be able to manage and protect it, and your workforce has to have access to the data. This can be a challenge, but at Sequential Networks, we can devise the right data storage solution for you in order to shrink backup windows, reduce costs, and be certain of being able to retrieve your stored information whenever you need it.
It can be hard to control rapidly growing data. Often, businesses find that it’s an expensive, complex procedure, and they need to identify ways of maximising Data Storage efficiency without adding layers of complexity, disrupting business, or incurring more costs.
We offer storage portfolios that deliver performance, simplicity, and cost-effectiveness, regardless of scale – entry level, Tier 1 Data Storage across branch office, data centres for block, object and file workloads, and for solid state media and HDD.
Traditional technology stacks are usually comprised of multiple vendors or “best of breed” solutions for specific projects. This creates vendor sprawl and operational difficulties. Converged infrastructure consolidates computing, networking, Data Storage, management and virtualisation into a single platform. This means that businesses can reduce their need for IT personnel and their dependence on various vendors. It also means that operations run more smoothly.
We can advise you on the best converged infrastructure solution for your business. Our solutions are fully customised to suit your specific needs, whatever the size of your operation.
We are in the midst of a digital revolution unlike anything experienced by previous generations, with technology expanding exponentially Networking Security are critical subjects. This means that the demand and the need for access to online services is greater than it’s ever been. In fact, it’s estimated that by the year 2020, there will be approximately 4 billion people online, and about 31 billion devices in use.
Along with the increased demand for online access comes a need for secure, unified Networking Security. Currently, broadband offers 24/7 access, but the security challenges are huge.
Intrusion prevention and detection systems, and next generation firewalls, are only as effective as the policies and rules that regulate them. We’re no longer able to just “set and forget” the security parameters, since now many different applications share data, users and networks. Malicious attacks are focused, frequent, and constantly evolving in order to target and appropriate your data.
We approach Networking Security in a flexible, consultative manner. Whether you want to leverage your current investments, or design a unified system for the future, we can advise you on the most effective approach.
