Now, more than ever, digital transformation is the fuel companies are using to boost productivity and engage consumers. It is spurring organizations of every size to reimagine how work gets done by creating secure digital workspaces that are designed to promote agility, enhance service and growth
No longer exclusive to desks on site, employees are working successfully in virtual teams—communicating and collaborating anytime, anywhere, on any device using the applications freely. And according to recent surveys, this trend shows no signs of slowing. 70% of workers are now working remotely at least one day per week.
For IT, this on-demand, work from home environment is creating new challenges and security risks. In many cases, admins are lacking end-to-end visibility and control and they’re increasingly struggling to deliver the best experience for their employees and customers.
IT teams find themselves purchasing disparate products for specific types of applications and device profiles. As a result, workers have to go to multiple gateways or access points to use different types of applications, creating a poor user experience.
As branch offices and remote workers become more pervasive, the need for an effective balance between usability and security has never been more important.
Fortunately, the next generation of remote access solutions, like Nerds Support’s cloud services, offer many capabilities that can help overcome the infrastructure challenges and security risks that today’s distributed businesses and users are creating.
Here’s just a few things these new solutions can deliver:
• A better overall user experience for remote and mobile workers – Next-gen remote access solutions provide users with one access point and single sign-on (SSO) to applications regardless of where they’re located or how they are deployed.
• An effective way to consolidate infrastructure – These new solutions provide one URL and streamline your remote access infrastructure – helping to reduce IT costs and improve the ease of keeping with compliance and security policies.
• The ability to view your entire infrastructure – Instead of seeing only what your point solutions could control, these next-gen solutions provide true visibility into your application traffic, ensuring higher uptime and reducing help-desk calls.
