STORAGE AND POINT-OF-CARE SOLUTIONS
Stanley Healthcare products hit prime time Everybody wants their 15 minutes of fame, right? But
how many really get it? Stanley Healthcare did after it was contacted in early
February by Robin McCarthy, art dept. coordinator for the hit medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy,” looking for equipment to fi ll the TV show’s new ED set at Prospect Studios just east of Hollywood, Calif. Items from Stanley’s Storage and Supply Chain Solu- tions line, including medical carts and cabinets, wire shelv- ing, inventory management and point-of-care solutions, passed their auditions and made their debut on season nine’s episode 20 called, “She’s Killing Me.” T e show was broadcast April 4, 2013. But how do you get such a sweet product-placement
gig? “We had provided products to ABC studios in the past, and they had found them to be a strong representa- tion of high-quality, durable technology that was the recognized standard for supply chain storage and inven- tory management in the healthcare setting,” says Beth Young, global strategic business marketing director at Stanley Healthcare. And how did the equipment look and perform? So good that it has become a permanent fi xture on the set.

industry. Results include: industr . • Sixty-one percent of security professionals ixty-one percent of se
surveyed support BYOD completely (17 percent) or gen- erally (44 percent) compared to only 1 percent that were against BYOD. T e remainder had “mixed emotions.”
• Seventy-four percent of the respondents’ employers were introducing a BYOD program aggressively (22 percent) or slowly (52 percent) compared to only 3 percent that had banned BYOD. Seven percent of organizations were reluctantly allowing some BYOD capability.
• Respondents say BYOD will bring higher risk to their organization by an overwhelming margin, with 90 per- cent saying so compared to 10 percent of respondents who were neutral.
• Security professionals are willing to accept higher risk in return for increased benefi ts to the organization. Twenty-three percent of respondents with strong per- sonal interests and 30 percent with strong organization interests also assessed the risk as higher.
• At 20 percent, penetration rates for more advanced vir- tual machine and sandboxing capabilities were higher than anticipated. T is could be a forbearer of new technologies being used to match new architectures.
• On average, organizations are deploying three network controls and three data controls in support of roaming BYOD devices with organizational data and non-orga- nization-owned devices accessing an internal network.
