The driving force behind the use of 1E

More than ten years ago, the company transitioned to 1E, specifically 1E Content Distribution. The rapid expansion of their network across the United States and beyond made traditional methods of software distribution, such as downloading to each machine or deploying to distribution points at every location, extremely painful and costly.

The benefits of 1E

1E became an integral part of how the SCCM administrators at the company managed various deployment, patching, and security tasks, immediately transforming peer-to-peer file sharing.

1E has realized significant cost savings for the company. Patching secures and protects the environment from outside threats and vulnerabilities, as well as fixing bugs. Since the transition to 1E, the company has not experienced any major security breaches or vulnerabilities, thanks to the effective patching facilitated by 1E.
