How Can Unified Network Group Help You Prepare Your Office for a Remote Work Environment?
As COVID-19 is now affecting each and every individual and business across the country, companies are having to get creative when it comes to staying open and functional. Many companies have had to quickly shift to a remote work environment and learn more about data security for remote workers. At Unified Network Group, we’ve worked with many of our clients over the past few weeks to help them ensure their employees are able to work remotely. We thought it would be a good idea to showcase a few ways that companies can quickly move to a remote work environment.
How to Prepare for a Remote Work Environment
Below are a few ways that companies can begin to provide a remote work environment for their employees safely and securely.
- Secure Remote Access – One of the best ways to offer work from home options is through the use of secure remote access. This allows your employees to remote into their work desktops from home and work as if they were sitting at their desk. This can quickly allow companies of all sizes to be fully functional, regardless of location. All that’s needed for secure remote access to work properly is an active internet connection.
- VPN – A VPN or Virtual Private Network provides remote workers with an encrypted connection when connecting to your company’s internal network. This ensures that your employee’s connections are always secure when accessing company resources.
- Firewall – A firewall is extremely important when remote access is used in a work environment. A firewall helps to protect your company’s on site network from unauthorized access from external sources.
- Cloud Based Tools – With a shift toward remote work, companies are looking to use a variety of cloud-based tools to improve productivity and are moving to the cloud. A few of these tools that may interest you include Office 365, G Suite, Slack, Dropbox, Skype and many others. At Unified Network Group, we can help you to learn more about the various cloud offerings to determine which solutions may work best for your company.
