Secure enterprise wallpaper deployment
Message clarity

Assigns a unique wallpaper to every screen with a set resolution thus preserving the structural integrity of the image and the message. A computer monitor oriented as landscape will have a landscape wallpaper assigned to it and a computer monitor setup with a portrait orientation should have a portrait wallpaper set on it, thus keeping the message clear.

Message reach

Easy cloud delivery and on-premise deployments. Deploy using cloud management tools like Microsoft InTune. The deployed WPSecure wallpaper package will update and change at real-time without the user having to restart or logout. Email messaging is a thing of the past; using computer wallpaper is a more efficient way to get the message through because its there to see when users log in, minimize a window or click on an icon on the Desktop folder. WPSecure wallpaper deployment package makes this possible on all Cloud-connected devices.

Message scheduling

WPSecure wallpaper deployment packages have been designed for side by side deployment of multiple versions. The WPSecure campaign manager enables organizations to change a message, introduce a new message or have different messages for varying working groups within the organization.

Message security

WPsecure wallpapers are encrypted and signed with encryption standards similar to the those used by the U.S. government to protect classified information. WPSecure wallpaper deployment package secures the enterprise wallpaper and the contained information not only during transit but also at rest on the computer.

A process driven approach

Your internal communications team does the creative task of writing the message. Depending on the selected plan, the creation of the wallpaper images will be a task for your graphic designer or ours. Our team within 24 working hours would do the encryption, packaging and digital signing of the cloud-ready MSI package. Finally, your IT team would deploy the MSI package using SCCM, Intune or other similar deployment systems.

About WPSecure

WPSecure wallpaper deployment packages help organizations run a robust internal communications campaign by promoting the company’s objectives, products and services to employees using desktop wallpapers. WPSecure wallpaper packages increase employee engagement with the company’s goals and foster brand advocacy.

Unlike traditional wallpaper deployment platforms that have expensive and complicated Server and Client components, the WPSecure wallpaper deployment process does not have any backend server infrastructure or databases. It is much simple and more effective by all measures.

WPSecure is an Application Packaging service that produces a digitally signed Microsoft Installer (MSI) package; a package that contains your encrypted wallpaper files. The package comes ready for deployment to the Windows 10 and Windows 7 fleet. The only involvement of the Information Technology team would be to deploy the digitally signed Microsoft Installer (MSI) package.

Organizations could use software deployment tools like Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (SCCM), Symantec Altiris or other Cloud-based deployment platforms like Microsoft Intune to deploy the digitally signed Microsoft Installer (MSI) package.

Security is key

WPsecure wallpapers are encrypted and signed with encryption standards similar to the those used by the U.S. government to protect classified information. WPSecure wallpaper deployment package secures the enterprise wallpaper and the contained information not only during transit but also at rest on the computer.

Easy cloud and local delivery

For a Professional service plan, our team will produce a digitally signed Microsoft Installer (MSI) WPSecure wallpaper package within 24 working hours. The package comes ready for deployment to the Windows 10 and Windows 7 fleet both in the Cloud and On-premise. Use Cloud deployment services like Microsoft InTune to deploy the WPSecure wallpaper MSI package.

No expensive servers or databases

WPsecure is not a tool but a secure packaging service. It does not have any expensive server infrastructure or large databases. Use your existing deployment tools like SCCM, Altiris or Intune to deploy the WPSecure wallpaper packages. WPSecure packages come ready to deploy just out-of-the-box.

No expensive per user fees

Some software products, in addition to having expensive infrastructure costs also have per user monthly fees. WPSecure wallpaper packages can be deployed to unlimited Windows devices without any additional cost. WPSecure wallpaper packaging is a per-request service.

Instant realignment of wallpapers

The secure wallpapers immediately trigger realignment to new configurations when users change display resolution or rearrange the screens.

Scheduling using Campaign manager

WPSecure wallpaper deployment packages have been designed for side by side deployment of multiple versions. The feature allows organizations to change a message, introduce a new message or have different messages for varying working groups within the organization. The WPSecure campaign manager allows administrators to schedule a specific wallpapers package version to start or end at predefined dates.

Real time change

When a new version is deployed, WPSecure wallpaper package will update and change at real-time without the user having to restart or logout. The real-time changing of wallpaper helps get the new message out to the users quickly.

A wallpaper for every screen resolution

Message clarity is paramount for internal communications. The WPSecure wallpaper package prefers the use of an accurately fitting wallpaper for every screen resolution and screen orientation. However, if a fitting image is not available, WPSecure makes an effort to make a centered fit with an image of the same aspect ratio as of the screen. If all else fails, a black background will be used.

Corporate communications Specialist

Progressive companies are embracing the importance of internal communications and marketing and are looking at efficient ways to provide robust technology to communicate and market their messages. One employee engagement solution could be through the use of dynamic wallpapers on the employees’ computer screen. To work, wallpapers must not be mundane, static and irrelevant. Instead, they need to be relevant, adaptive and appeal to the employee.
