Mobile worker protection contract

Vodafone (UK) : 13 May, 2009  (Application Story)
UK financial services group signs contract with Vodafone for the protection and management of its 3500 mobile workers
Vodafone UK has announced that leading financial and business advisor Grant Thornton UK LLP ('Grant Thornton') has awarded it a two year contract worth around £2m to protect and manage its entire mobile working estate with Vodafone Secure Remote Access (VSRA).

VSRA is an easy to implement, highly customizable remote working solution that provides fully configurable policy-based access that aligns to business and employee needs. This service enables Grant Thornton to enforce IT policy for all its mobile staff, providing high-speed data transmission. In addition, Vodafone's solution not only lowers the cost and complexity of supporting mobile staff, but also gives them a user-friendly and secure 'one button' connection to a range of mobile and fixed networks such as 3G, WiFi and fixed broadband.

Grant Thornton has over 3,500 mobile employees who regularly meet with its more than 25,000 individual and 15,000 corporate and institutional clients. With staff working from so many varied locations, Grant Thornton needed an enhanced, cost effective and easily manageable way for them to work remotely. It also keeps Grant Thornton people within immediate reach of the Grant Thornton International organisation of independently owned and managed accounting and consulting firms. Following a detailed examination of available solutions Grant Thornton selected Vodafone.

The VRSA solution provides Grant Thornton with many benefits for managing its remote staff, from a specifically tailored reporting capability to a centralised and comprehensive IT security policy enforcement platform to protect its corporate resources.

Greg Swift, National IS Director for Grant Thornton, said: 'By centralising the management of our mobile network, our staff have another enhanced service delivery tool that further increases our already high client satisfaction.'
