Industry:  Field Services

Location: Tabor City, North Carolina, USA

Product: SureLock and SureFox

The Solution

SureLock and SureFox by 42Gears

42Gears had the tools that Aerial Solutions needed to safely give employees tablets. In particular, 42Gears helped Aerial Solutions implement SureLock, the 42Gears kiosk lockdown solution, and SureFox, the 42Gears secure browser solution. Together, these two tools helped the company quickly overcome its tablet-related challenges. 

  1. Using SureLock, the company blocked access to any apps that were not essential for the job. 
  2. SureFox permitted employees to visit necessary sites, but did not allow them to visit off-topic or dangerous websites. 
  3. SureLock and SureFox allowed employees to safely relay data they needed.

Benefits

  1. Employees stayed on-task thanks to SureLock and SureFox, ensuring their safety under dangerous conditions.  
  2. The ability to safely transmit paperwork and other information has allowed the company to coordinate with its customers more quickly and at lower cost.

Testimonial

“With the implementation of SureLock and SureFox, we are able to control what our employees install on company tablets and prevent them from using the tablets for anything other than company business.”
