Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health: Leading Public Health Authority Adopts Security Enhancing Remote Access Solution
Based in Baltimore, Maryland, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is an international authority on public health. Their Information Systems team is responsible for supporting the school's important work with leading-edge technology and systems. GoToMyPC Corporate provides the school with secure, easy-to-use remote access to the desktop for faculty and staff members working remotely. For them keeping their remote-access total cost of implementation (TCI) low was important, so it was especially appealing that GoToMyPC Corporate is a managed service.
When the school needed to replace a dial-in remote-access connection, the team initially considered a virtual private network (VPN). The team decided not to use a VPN because they needed a solution that was easy to implement and use. A VPN would have required the involvement of their network staff and additional costs such as purchasing hardware. However, with GoToMyPC Corporate the team rolled out a secure remote-access solution within hours.
