A wave of collaboration tools entered IT environments this year as departments independently on-boarded solutions for video meetings and team collaboration. Organizations can now take a step back and look at which solutions to standardize on to increase adoption, reduce end-user confusion and further productivity, as well as explore ways to optimize employees' video experience.
Right now, home workers may be able to access some corporate applications but access to all corporate applications can be cumbersome. By adopting solutions that don’t require a VPN, embracing VDI, leveraging the cloud and managing devices from a single platform, organizations can give employees a true virtual workspace.
Many employees have been relying on home internet and personal endpoints to get their jobs done. In some cases, this can suffice. Some employees, however — especially those who spend a majority of their day interacting with colleagues and customers via phone or video — will need networking solutions that guarantee predictable, high-quality communication. Organizations must now determine the best way to deliver employees an appropriate level of connectivity based on their job functions.
The surge of remote workers has greatly expanded organizations' attack surface. With employees using personal devices and home firewalls to access corporate applications and data comes risk.
