Founded in 1928, Asplundh is a full-service utility contractor performing vegetation management services for specialized markets such as municipalities, railroads, pipelines and departments of transportation. With over 30,000 service professionals throughout the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the complexity and number of endpoints have grown significantly in the past 10 years. With 95% of their workforce mobile, Asplundh struggled to manage and secure the devices in their deployment.
7The number of endpoints at Asplundh have grown significantly, now totaling over 7,000 devices. Despite security policies, users would unintentionally compromise security and compliance by either disabling DLP, anti-virus or other security applications or installing incompatible software that would remove corporate protection processes and policies.
Knowing just one vulnerable device could severely impact their business, both in reputation and in penalties for non-compliance, Asplundh began searching for a partner that could help support their endpoints.
