Industry think tank gets even more value from Tehama during the global pandemic


Confronted by the Covid-19 lockdown, this organization needed to get its employees working securely and effectively from home, and in full compliance with national data-residency regulations.


The solution

With Tehama, this client was able to bypass all the typical knee-jerk solutions for a remote workforce. Choosing Tehama eliminated the need for new hardware, as well as the security risks of virtual private networks (VPNs). The Tehama desktops seamlessly replicated the organization’s familiar Office 365 environment in a solution that can run securely in any web browser and on any device.

Of course, the client could have added other tools to a VPN to support its virtual workforce more securely. The obvious choices for this strategy would have included virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), Identity and Access Management (IAM), multi-factor authentication (MFA), privileged access management (PAM) and privileged service management (PSM). But buying all these point products separately would have meant stitching them together to create an effective, manageable and secure solution. That effort would have been complex, costly, time consuming and highly risky. By contrast, the Tehama solution was implemented in minutes, with no professional services to retain, no infrastructure to install and no networks to retool. By choosing Tehama, the client got unparalleled security in a solution that is affordable and painless to enable.



In spite of the disruption of Covid-19, the client’s Tehama environment allowed its employees to transition easily and quickly to the new work-from-home reality. And because Tehama already offers robust SOC 2 security, the solution is one that will remain sustainable as the global trend toward remote work continues.

Next Steps

Tehama expects the engagement to grow in 2020 as the client scales to meet demand for future projects.
