Founded in 2005 in Sweden, Play’n GO specializes in developing top-quality gaming platforms and software for online and land-based casinos. In the last five years, the company has experienced rapid growth, becoming an industry leader with additional offices in Malta, the United Kingdom, Hungary, and the Philippines.
The company’s first office was opened in Växjö, Sweden, and used Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium, but employees in many of the company’s new offices could not connect to that environment. “We were growing really fast and hadn’t created a game plan for rolling out Microsoft services or domain services or connecting our devices,” says Christoffer Tykö, Internal IT Team Leader at Play’n GO.
As the first IT employee hired to work outside of the Swedish office, Tykö had a unique perspective. He started looking for a way to give the company’s worldwide workforce the same capabilities as the folks working in Sweden, without having to invest in local servers for each office. “That’s when I discovered Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security,” says Tykö. “I wanted to promote mobile productivity and protection for our people and devices by implementing Microsoft Intune and Azure Active Directory. I also wanted to assure that all of our employees were using Windows Hello, which I could manage through the Azure portal.”
