Clients can control the security of their businesses' information on employee mobile devices with Mobile Device Management. Digicel Mobile Device Management enables completely secure access to any business application, using any device.”

Tom O'Neill, Digicel Bermuda Business Solutions director said: “At Digicel Business, we aim to keep our clients at the forefront with leading technology solutions. Citrix, Cisco and Microsoft are recognised as global leaders in the cloud industry.

“We have the highest level of service provider partner accreditations with each of these global leaders, which reflects their recognition of our commitment in this regard.”

Mr. O'Neill continued, “Digicel Business is equipped to bring the high quality Enterprise Private Cloud Solutions to Bermuda with a full-service offering that enhances the user experience and delivers significant value to our business clients.”

Digicel said that after a rigorous process, Citrix has selected Digicel as a strategic go to market partner for Desktop as a Service.

Speaking for Citrix, Scott Swanburg stated, “The Desktop as a Service (DaaS) market is growing rapidly and our Citrix Service Provider (CSP) partners are delivering hundreds of thousands of cloud-hosted desktops and applications to businesses that are looking to go mobile and enable bring your own (BYO) device programs.

“Digicel is the first regional telecommunications company outside of the US to offer these services as part of the CSP programme. Digicel Desktop as a Service will bring significant value to customers across the Caribbean and Central America, allowing them to take full advantage of the flexibility of hosted desktops and applications with maximum uptime and productivity.”

Mr. O'Neill added: “There is no capital expenditure, their employees can bring their own devices, they can have a mobile workforce, their data is secure and protected, and maintenance and upgrades are included.

“Businesses can focus on what they do best rather than spending important capital and resources on purchasing and maintaining expensive, depreciating equipment.”
