Come look around. If you haven't visited with us lately, you should see some of the exciting things we're doing today. We are proud of our networking heritage and of being a member of the Utah Valley community, but we're equally proud of our focus on developing new technologies to solve today's real-world problems.
Take a look below at some of the trends changing the IT industry today, and meet the six people whose problems we are here to solve.
The real world is about serving real people
Klaus / CIO
I need you to make sure the business is secure & productive.
Kristie / Sales
I need the tools to make this sale.
Esteban / IT Admin
I need to serve up these apps without creating more work.
Divya / Support
I need to connect to our customers.
Oliver / Finance
I need to know how much data storage will cost us.
Gavin / Intern
I need to print this document from my iPhone.
Mobile is the New Black
Our customers' employees are going to bring their smartphones and tablets to work no matter what. That's OK; we believe workers should be productive on their own terms (and devices) without compromising IT goals. We design our products to help our customers give mobile employees the tools they need. For us, mobility isn't a special category. It's just life.
There are more iPhones sold each day than babies born in the world.
02 Endpoint Security
IS SECURITY &
Personal smartphones and tablets increase productivity, but can quickly become a liability without proper security. A CIO's top priority may be security, but employees value productivity most. We don't think IT professionals should have to choose between these often-competing goals. We let them say "yes" to both.
120,000 cell phones are lost in Chicago taxi cabs every year (nearly 329 per day).
CO-WORKERS ARE MAKING CONNECTIONS
When employees across an organization get the tools to connect the way they do in their social life, productivity results. So how do we help our customers' employees hook up? We create intuitive social tools that let workers follow, tag, rate, micro-blog and more.
Most employees who use Facebook and Twitter in the workplace keep it open in the background all the time—just like email.1
39 percent of IT leaders have a major employee collaboration implementation planned this year.2

04 File & Print
Think good old-fashioned files aren't relevant anymore? Ask the end users who fuel your organization's productivity engine. Whether they're sharing files with collaborators across the globe, printing them for Human Resources or organizing them on your intranet, they know how critical files are to the daily business round. We began working with file and print before most of your employees were born, and we're still innovating to make sure your users can leverage this classic tool of productivity to drive success.
Three billion pages are printed per day in EMEA. If we lay down the pages printed daily in EMEA one after another, they would reach the moon and back.
05 Data Governance
MORE DATA, MORE PROBLEMS
Data is amassing on the horizon, and in order to comply with regulations, organizations will be storing even more tomorrow. When dealing with the inevitable data explosion, some organizations might convince themselves that storage is cheap. Well, it isn't free. We help our customers control their data, instead of forcing them to beg the finance department for more funds.

06 Application Management
YOUR SECRETARY IS A DICTATOR
Everyone in the modern organization needs a different application—and they need them now. Company policy seems like a thing of the past, and IT staffs can barely keep up. Giving employees the apps they want doesn't help the business if IT costs soar. The trick is to give employees what they want without giving away the farm.
In large organizations (that is, 5,000 to 50,000 users), there is typically one application for every 10 to 20 users. Therefore, an organization with 10,000 users typically has about 500 to 1,000 applications.2
