With more workers around the world now accessing vital work applications and data from home, it is clearer than ever before how necessary having a secure and reliable work from home strategy is.
However, there are many obstacles between you and the perfect, harmonious work from home deployment. These include, connecting remote users securely with the apps and data they need, ensuring ongoing security for your remote endpoints in the event that they are lost or stolen, and managing configuring and managing remote devices outside your corporate perimeter.
How do you enable secure access to apps and data for remote users?
When it comes to enabling work from home, there are several challenges you are bound to face. To begin with, you must make sure that all end users have the devices they need to get their most important work tasks done.
When we see what has happened in the current crisis situation, for example, it becomes painfully apparent that in a moment’s notice, workers might have to access EVERYTHING remotely.
IT is faced with a seemingly impossible challenge. What if workers require access to specialized applications? Will you rely on their home and personal devices? Will you purchase all employees dedicated, new devices? How do you do so without spending a fortune?
In addition to the hardware problem – getting the right devices to the right people at the right time – there’s the security problem. How on earth do you ensure security on the endpoint for all of these devices? These devices will be accessing confidential corporate information regularly. Are you okay with that information being housed on endpoint devices outside your corporate perimeter? Are you able to handle the ramifications of those devices being lost or stolen?
Also, how do you enable appropriate licensing? Software must be properly licensed on each endpoint, updated, patched, and maintained. Additionally, malware and antivirus contracts must be provided.
Lastly, IT must provide excellent technical support for potentially thousands of remote devices, scattered around the world, with different hardware specifications, and multiple different software versions housed on each and every one.
