According to a report by Gartner, 54% of HR leaders have cited that poor technology and/or infrastructure for remote working is the biggest barrier to effective remote working.

Seqrite Workspace


Enterprise adoption of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) culture wherein employees can work from their own mobile devices is surging. Although, this ecosystem is mutually beneficial to both, employees and employers, personal devices when left unguarded become vulnerable to data leakage. Seqrite Workspace helps businesses avoid this scenario by securing sensitive information ensuring complete control over their data in a BYOD environment.

Seqrite Workspace is an intelligent application, designed and developed keeping these organizational challenges in mind. It resolves the impasse by creating a virtual partition in a personal device wherein business and personal data reside as mutually exclusive entities. Workspace further ensures that a bi-directional exchange of personal and business information is rendered impossible.
