What is it and Why get it?
Remote access solutions make it possible for you and your employees to connect to the valuable data, applications and content needed in your day-to-day work; only you don’t have to be in office. Recently, with the prevalence of the global pandemic, Coronavirus and unpredictable weather, employee safeguarding should be as much as a priority as your team’s productivity.
Remote and flexible working away from the office is growing steadily in popularity, enabled by a whole host of digital tools and is seen as a win-win for employers and employees alike. The lack of a daily commute and everyday office distractions is a great way to retain freshness of mind. We’ve all been in day-ending and pointless meetings about meetings, right?
Is it Secure?
Whilst remote access is important during these times, it is also important that it is well implemented and managed.
At Network Consultancy, we offer a solution that has been through proper oversight and preparation, combatting any security concerns, especially the presence of unsecured, everyday internet-connected devices (IoT) in the home.
“With more people likely to work from home in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, now is the time for companies to review their security procedures related to remote access in office systems, to secure all endpoints and ensure that their connection to the corporate network is secure. If someone is working remotely, they are working on a network not directly controlled by their business. This is why it’s essential for companies to set up processes to enable staff to connect remotely to corporate systems securely.”

Remote Access solutions are key to today’s working infrastructure. Today, your office can be wherever you are: at home, at the airport or at the café. Regardless of your location, you can still work to the best of your ability, and continue thriving.
The modern workforce needs remote access solutions, so they can have secure access to increased resources from more remote devices and platforms than ever before.
Your everyday work will be much easier and relaxed; if someone was stuck away from the office (because of illness, harsh weather, travel restrictions), they can still be productive. Businesses without remote working solutions will lose countless days of productivity every year.
Remote working access also promotes safeguarding within the workplace, which should be a priority for all employers. Due to recent events involving both the Coronavirus and harsh weather conditions, many workplaces are taking advantage of their remote working to keep their employees safe.
Currently, to help contain the Coronavirus, people are staying home and creating boundaries for themselves, a self-imposed quarantine you might say. Workplaces should do the same. The UK’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, recently declared that up to a fifth of UK workers ‘could be off sick at the same time’.
Another example is Twitter. They are recently ‘strongly encouraging’ all its employees (5,000) to not come into work. The company has made it mandatory for all staff in Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong to work remotely. This comes shortly after they banned non-essential business trips for its employees.
Businesses with Remote Access are able to continue to work as usual.
Remote working not only helps keep your staff protected, but ultimately, happy and settled. Key aspects for a growing company that’s keen to limit staff turnover.
Treat your people like people, not robotic commodities. Remote access gives them more flexibility and control in their day-to-day lives, and shows them that they’re trusted to work alone.
These days, a work-life balance is extremely important and is being pushed more every-day. With remote access, employees can have this balance while keeping their productivity up. This, in turn, increases morale in the workplace, which is needed for a healthy working environment and efficient productivity.
