Backcountry is using Tehama to securely onboard remote employees and

remote teams to collaborate globally and scale their workforce up during
busy periods. With Tehama, Backcountry has instant secure access
controls, isolated and collaborative workspaces, and continuous
monitoring to reduce risk when providing access to remote employees and
temporary workers.

“Backcountry’s community of outdoor enthusiasts has rapidly expanded
over the years, and as a result, we have a complex environment requiring
fine-tuned access to critical applications for employees and
contractors. We now have a real need for a platform like Tehama that
enables us to provide controlled, restricted and fully auditable access
for our workforce and contractors to internal systems without
compromising security, all the while continuing to have a full audit
trail of their connections,” said Leo Mata, Information Security Manager
at Backcountry.

The Tehama platform offers instantly compliant SOC 2 Type II workspaces
and helps to support other security and regulatory standards including
GDPR, ISO 27001, OSFI, and PCI/DSS. Tehama also eliminates the risks of
infected endpoint devices.

“Backcountry is leading the way by optimizing Tehama to ensure that
their most valuable data assets and mission critical systems are
secure,” said Gene Villeneuve, Tehama’s CRO. “With data breaches on the
rise and making headlines daily, it’s best to take a proactive approach
when it comes to securing the services supply chain.”
