Customer Success Story: Barge of the Heart

The Péniche du Cœur, translated the Barge of the Heart, founded in 1994, is an Emergency Shelter Center. It welcomes men of age who are homeless or those who are suddenly confronted with a lack of housing. Their missions: to respond to basic needs, to offer a friendly welcome that helps stabilize the person, to offer personalized social support to initiate a path towards social autonomy, and to revitalize the person through individual and collective activities. Thus, the center provides housing, meals, and accompanies the 53 residents in their project of social reintegration, opening of their rights, search for housing and return to work.

Not all guests own their computer equipment, so they must borrow equipment that other guests will use. This raises a question about the confidentiality of the use of the hardware: their browsing history, the applications they use, etc. So our question was “How do we ensure that their use of the hardware guarantees their privacy and confidentiality?”

We were mainly looking for a guarantee of complete confidentiality for a hosted person’s use of the hardware by ensuring that we systematically erase all of their activity after they use a tablet. Also, it is crucial to limit the installation of software to prevent hacking or damage to the tablets.

By restricting mobile devices to a Kiosk mode with TinyMDM, you have the option to set up private sessions. This sessions feature allows you to open a temporary access on a managed device, to access the applications. Once the user has finished, they close the session and delete the application data from the device, ensuring data protection. Learn more about this feature.
