Donnie Downs, CEOIn today’s world, the growing BYOD phenomenon in the business environment adds credence to the significance of technology. However, many companies fail to reap the benefits of the trend, due to the absence of security and compliance policy systems around bringing devices to work. As a result, CIOs face the predicament of maintaining world-class SLAs with their internal teams, while controlling a growing landscape of devices. “This IT consumerization phenomenon empowers organizations to function flawlessly in a mobile setting. However, when people are connected to the network there is always a risk of encountering security issues,” says Donnie Downs, CEO, Plan B Technologies, Inc. The Maryland-based company, Plan B Technologies, Inc.

The company has consistently rendered incremental success to its clients. In one instance, a premier pediatric care provider in Washington approached Plan B Tech to implement a reliable application that would enable nursing staff and medical practitioners to have data access from anywhere and anytime. Plan B Tech used Citrix’s complete VDI suite and tested it on 100 users. With the VDI implementation, the customer saw an enormous savings in the time spent by medical practitioners and care givers in logging onto the applications and devices to access data and thus a significant increase in productivity.
