Below is our recent interview with Olivia Jol from Tehama:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Tehama is the safer, smarter, and more productive way to deploy a hybrid workforce. With the Tehama Carrier for Work solution, enterprises can create cloud-based virtual offices, rooms, and desktops anywhere in the world. No other solution on the market today connects remote workers with mission-critical and data-sensitive systems, with the speed, agility, and unparalleled security that Tehama offers.
Tehama is revolutionizing how businesses connect to and transmit work with the only all-in-one platform to combine Desktop as a Service (DaaS), Security, Audit, and Networking for seamless hybrid workforce enablement.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Tehama is the world’s first carrier for work. As we’ve seen happen time and time again with technology, eventually a carrier for any valuable good or service will emerge. Redex, tmobile, rogers and bell in canada, these are just a few. The emergence of a carrier of work flips the buying pattern. Organizations no longer need to grapple with the challenges of BYO when it comes to delivering productivity to the end user.
Similar to engaging with Fedex, AT&T or T-Mobile, when engaging with a “carrier for work” a standard of care for delivering productivity from point A to point B is included. The business can now choose the solution based on a standard of care where the onus of delivering the agreed upon functionality rests with the carrier and thereby reduces the overall risk.
With the Tehama Carrier for Work™ model, organizations can securely deliver productivity to their hybrid workforce in three simple steps that will take a month or less to complete:
- Validate Tehama’s standard of care
- Negotiate contracts – once
Next, they create a Tehama Workroom and can onboard users in less than an hour. And if they have to expand to a new region, there is no need to start over – they simply create another Tehama Workroom with the same security configuration in the new region, and end users will be up and running instantaneously.
So, why would a business readily choose to spend up to two years suffering through the pain of build-your-own, when they could get their hybrid workforce up and running in weeks, not months or years?
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Before Tehama, the conventional enterprise solution required the integration of costly technologies from a dozen or more vendors to manage the industry standard of care for credit card storage. The launch of the Carrier for Work challenges that norm. By offering everything needed to meet even the most stringent security and compliance challenges right out of the box, Tehama breaks the mould. In the age of cellular devices, companies no longer have in-house operators and switch-boards- after all, why would companies build their own carrier capacity from scratch, just to do less, when the repeatable, highly-scalable carrier offers so much more. What Tehama is proposing is no different: Why build your own private capacity when you could simply use the safer, smarter and more productive hybrid work solution?
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: The carrier for work is going global. Through our global network of partners, we expect Tehama’s Carrier for Work to not only be the first, but the international standard for remote work.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Cybercrime is no longer the purview of the masked hacker alone—it’s an exponential threat from all angles. Corporate espionage, state-sponsored actors and organized crime make up the bulk of the loss which, in 2021 alone, cost the world six trillion dollars.
