Aoba Hopkins Group wanted to provide a highly secure solution for remote access to applications and project files and deliver a system that is not only easy to use but also compatible with the existing infrastructure. The challenge was to create a solution that is scalable to support rapid growth. The Aoba Hopkins IT-service division revamped the company's IT infrastructure, deploying Sun Ray 2 thin clients, Sun Ray Software, and Sun Secure Global Desktop software to replace its VPN. The solution gave the company's auditors and consultants easy, highly secure remote access to its applications, files, and data from thin-client devices. The Sun solution eliminated many PC user issues, thereby saving IT staff time and reducing IT costs by roughly 35%.
