Working closely with the ASSETT team in late 2018, Attila installed GoSilent virtual servers in each of the three buildings on ASSETT’s campus in order to securely connect the company’s buildings, employees and customers up and down the east coast. In addition, the company issued employees 40 Attila GoSilent Cubes (dedicated VPN, firewall and Wi-Fi hotspots) that were each connected to the on-premise GoSilent Servers.
Getting set up with the GoSilent platform was exceedingly simple. A dedicated solutions engineer visited ASSETT’s campus to help its IT team with installation, configuration and onboarding, and Attila co-developed an everyday use guide with ASSETT for its employees.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, ASSETT faced the challenge of ensuring continuity of operations while protecting the health of its employees.
As part of the Defense Industrial Base Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce, ASSETT had to maintain full operations in support of its DoD contracts and therefore needed to quickly provide its employees with a way to work from home without compromising security.
The goal was to provide employees with a solution that they could configure and maintain without in person support from the company’s IT team, and that would meet stringent national security standards. Fortunately, the GoSilent platform is easily scalable, so solving this challenge was simply a matter of ordering enough additional GoSilent Cubes so that every employee who needed to work from home could do so securely.
ASSETT placed an order for an additional 30 GoSilent Cubes and because the servers were already set up on its campus, employees were able to self-provision the Cubes in minutes, on their own and without the need to install or configure any software, in the comfort of their homes.
The whole process was quick and easy, and Wayne Jakubowski, ASSETT’s CEO, referred to it as a “partnership.”
- Install two GoSilent Servers on ASSETT’s main campus.
- Deploy a total of 70 GoSilent Cubes for use by employees in securely connecting to the corporate network from wherever they choose to work.
- Ability to order more GoSilent Cubes at any time to quickly scale and accommodate any number of teleworkers.
