The LINE is a lively, modern boutique hotel nestled in the heart of LA’s Koreatown. It exudes hip design details—from its mid-century architecture to its sunlit second-floor pool to its lush urban greenhouse restaurant, the Commissary, run by LA chef (and street-food king) Roy Choi. The bright, welcoming lobby is always a scene, bustling day and night with guests having too much fun to head back to their rooms.
Amidst all this style and polish, it can be easy to forget the glue that holds so much of it together: The LINE’s IT team keeping guests connected and secure, enabling smooth communication and collaboration between the designers, marketers, and contractors behind the hotel’s success, and helping safeguard the LINE’s proprietary ideas—which are especially valuable in an industry that competes on creativity. Watch as Nick DeMarco, the LINE’s IT Director, discusses how his department approaches information protection to empower remote workers.
