The Office Experience at Home

Many companies have moved or are considering moving their employees to remote working as part of their Business Continuity plans. But with employees’ home networks a relative unknown, here are 5 key considerations to ensure a secure and resilient experience.

Consistent Office Experience
Seamless application access extends the workplace desk experience to anywhere that has an Internet or cellular connection. Laptops and VoIP phones work just like they do in the office using a simple desktop client that can be remotely downloaded by the user

Easy Deployment
Speed and agility is critical. Remote Access Points with Zero-Touch provisioning allow IT teams to simply factory ship or directly send out an AP to a remote location that is a true plug and play solution 

Staying Compliant
Regulatory compliance SOX, HIPAA, PCI, GLBA, and other regulations mandate how data is to be handled, including the separation of data and reporting. Look for solutions that are capable of enforcing administrative policies and assisting with compliance reporting

Keep it Secure
Key features for secure wired and wireless connections should include encryption and user authentication to protect the remote network. In addition, leverage a Policy Enforcement Firewall to extend application and user awareness to the remote site

Simplify Management
Management and reporting solutions can be performed through a single pane of glass with visibility into information on both individual users and devices. By also linking this into other existing IT management software, this provides extensive reporting capabilities, with specialised views for Help Desk, Security/Audit groups, and executive management
