Reduce IT costs with secure BYOD
With Parallels Secure Workspace, you can implement BYOD and reduce your end-user computing costs (hardware and services) by up to 44% without compromising on security.
Our analysis says BYOD can reduce total EUC costs between 29% and 44%
A study performed by our team shows that combining Parallels Secure Workspace with a sensible BYOD policy can save you up to 44% in end-user computing costs
Even if BYOD is not the default for all employees, it’s worth investigating what user-groups can adopt a BYOD policy or otherwise be equipped productively.
Why you should implement BYOD right now
BYOD or “bring your own device” is a trend that has been on the rise for the past decade. Many companies have either fully deployed their BYOD strategy or are investigating how to loosen their policies to enable their workforce to work from anywhere, on any device — even if it’s not one that is owned or managed by the company.
Parallels Secure Workspace supports your BYOD strategy with zero trust security
Parallels Secure Workspace makes all software — including legacy applications — and files available via browser. Accordingly, it runs on any device with an HTML5 browser. And that covers a lot!
Log in via any browser. There is no need to install any agents or plugins, nor to maintain and manage these locally installed agents and plugins.
No local data
Parallels Secure Workspace runs inside the browser. As such, there is no local data on the device (if you don’t want to). This is obviously a big benefit from a security and compliance point of view.
Parallels Secure Workspace optimizes access rights based on the user’s context (e.g., blocking access to critical apps or files in defined foreign countries).
MFA is built-in
There is no good reason to use simple passwords. Parallels Secure Workspace comes with built-in multi-factor authentication capabilities.

Platform-agnostic is the only way to go
Businesses have started to adopt different form factors such as tablets, laptops and thin clients. The range of options is almost endless and will only continue to grow.
BYOD and CYOD
Many businesses have started to adopt choose your own device (CYOD) or bring your own device (BYOD) policies. This trend will only grow in the future. For IT, this often involves managing the setup of an MDM solution. But these solutions require management and are therefore not truly agnostic.
Contractors need access to applications and data, but they don’t require organizations to provide and manage a device, but this is typically the case. Accordingly, costs are enormous, yet the value is small.
Windows 10 upgrades
Operating system upgrades — such as Windows 10 — are painful for many organizations due to legacy IT platforms and security. In platform agnostic implementation, the best practice is still to upgrade operating systems to the latest version. Yet this practice should not be impacted by the requirements for older IT platforms in the back end.
