Recruitment specialist SThree has deployed Good for Enterprise from Good Technology for its 1,000 employees.

As part of a newly introduced bring your own device (BYOD) model, SThree has implemented secure and managed enterprise mobility and collaboration tools to manage multiple mobile devices being used by nearly half of its workforce.

Garry Lengthorn, director of IT services at SThree, said: “Being able to finalise contracts and share information securely, remotely and flexibly means the difference between a sale and a missed opportunity.

“Consumerisation is an interesting opportunity in our organisation due to the proliferation of Generation Y graduates, but it comes with serious security risks and the BYOD element can be complicated to implement effectively.

“Good Technology offers a managed secure ‘turnkey' solution for all devices and platforms, which enables BYOD and generates efficiencies and cost-savings, allowing us to nurture the flexible working culture our business needs without compromising on security.”

SThree specialises in placing permanent and contract staff in niche markets, and said it recognises BYOD as an opportunity to increase productivity, efficiency and client service.

Andy Jacques, general manager EMEA at Good Technology, said: “SThree needed to support its BYOD strategy while maintaining absolute security of its critical data.  It also needed to do this quickly and with absolute confidence in the technology.

“By implementing Good for Enterprise, the company has given its employees the freedom to bring their own personal devices to work, while ensuring confidential client and candidate information, which is vital to their business, is completely secure.”
