Allegis Group uses Absolute Secure Endpoint to Bolster Endpoint Protection and Asset Management
Absolute Application Resilience Delivers the Reliability the Staffing Company Needs
Allegis Group is one of the world’s largest privately-held staffing companies. Its specialized network of companies includes Aerotek; TEKsystems; Allegis Global Solutions; Aston Carter; Major, Lindsey & Africa; Allegis Partners; MarketSource; EASi; AllegisBN; and Talent2. The company operates more than 500 offices across 50 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Allegis Group works with more than 20,000 clients, 90,000 contractors, and 15,000 employees.
Optimize Productivity for Employees off the Corporate Network
With more than 25 years of recruitment and staffing expertise globally, Allegis Group has earned itself a reputation for providing professional talent solutions. The company serves its customers through several business units that provide staffing services and solutions to a wide range of industries.
As Allegis Group expanded globally and engaged with new contractors in different regions, the number of remote staff increased. IT was tasked with putting in place architecture that optimizes productivity for employees working off the corporate network. In addition, Allegis Group needed to address the integrity of its data security, with many employee devices containing personally identifiable information. The company required a comprehensive and streamlined security protocol to ensure the protection of this data on behalf of its business partners and clients.
How They Did It
Improve Asset Management and End User Operations
As part of building a world-class security infrastructure, Allegis Group enlisted Absolute Secure Endpoint to serve as a critical layer in its overall security posture. “We follow and adhere to a comprehensive security incident response plan through our service desk system,” said Jeff Reinsfelder, Infrastructure Distribution Manager at Allegis Group. “In the event of a security incident, a ticket is automatically generated and distributed to key internal stakeholders to assess the potential risk and the need to take action. Absolute is obviously a key part of this security process.”
Manage and Secure All Endpoints and Validate Encryption Statuses
Absolute worked diligently with Allegis Group’s IT department to identify where Absolute Secure Endpoint could deliver greater value in managing and securing the organization’s assets. An opportunity was also identified to leverage Absolute Secure Endpoint to validate the existence of other business-critical software applications.
Ensure Application Health With Absolute Application Resilience™
For Allegis Group’s remote workforce, the company heavily relies on VPN connectivity to optimize employee productivity. When the company experienced challenges verifying the health of the VPN client, Absolute Secure Endpoint delivered an Absolute Application Resilience™ module as part of its Application Resilience catalog. This allowed Allegis to automatically repair and/or reinstall the VPN application in the event that the application is uninstalled, inactive, or disabled on any device.
Improve Security Posture While Instilling Peace of Mind
The bottom line: using Absolute allowed the Allegis Group to improve security and feel confident that their devices and data were protected.
For Allegis Group, Absolute Secure Endpoint:
- Validates the encryption status of devices
- Automatically reinstalls business-critical software that is covered in the Absolute Application Resilience catalog
- Instills peace of mind for partners and business clients
