Remote work has become a common employment arrangement across industries of all sizes with 70% of the global workforce working remotely at least once a week.
In response to this trend an increasing number of organizations are allowing employees the flexibility to work outside the office.
Remote work offers benefits for both employee and employer allowing companies to cut costs on office space, computers, electricity and more.
Securing this growing remote workforce is a necessity but also an ongoing battle. Remote employees access company resources from outside the corporate network and as a result are exposed to many security risks which in turn exposes company systems to those risks.
The right remote access solution for your company should:
*Offer on-demand access with no need for client-side software.
*Provide both privacy and security with multiple flexible authentication options.
*Be cost effective and generally contain operating costs through centralized management.
*Be scalable to accommodate rapid growth.
The workplace is always changing, but one trend is clear: Remote work will continue to grow in popularity. Expect the requirements and standards for robust remote access systems to grow accordingly.
