For many businesses, its not as easy to pick up your laptop and work from home. When employees leave your office a few challenges need to be considered.
At the moment, many businesses are scrambling to find solutions that enable users to work from home. This rush has put a lot of strain on service providers to keep up with demand. Most businesses don’t have a suitable solution in place or does not perform adequately.
I recently witnessed an organisation that sent all employees home with their desktop PC’s, with no consideration for security. When moving your devices away from the corporate network, users may not be protected, and they will experience slowness when accessing their applications and files. Below are our top considerations to enable your users to work from home:
- How will you protect devices and data when they are outside your environment?
- How can files be accessed securely?
- Can users work from home using their laptop/desktop?
- Should staff login remotely via a VPN or Citrix environment?
- How will you ensure your IP won’t get leaked?
Below I have put together a few options that will help you make better decisions about your work from home policy.
