COVID-19 Forces People to Work From Home
With the ongoing global pandemic, all businesses have had to make dramatic changes to their operating models. The most significant change many companies have undergone has been the requirement to put together a Work From Home (WFH) solution – in many cases, faster and at a greater scale than could ever have been imagined was possible.
Now that there are millions more employees worldwide working out of various home offices with numerous tools and technologies, how does one maintain a functional and connected workforce?

Support Remote Workers
With many employees working on laptops and using their own devices, it would seem that from a technical standpoint, working from home is easy to support. Yet, it’s not as simple for some industries. For instance, companies in the insurance and financial sectors work with sensitive data that can’t be left on their own internal servers, with some companies using proprietary apps that can only be offered from their office networks. Though remote workers may have access to corporate virtual private networks (VPNs) that allow them access to office networks, everyone working remotely requires more network bandwidth and expanded hardware to encrypt the connections.
Unfortunately, some offices don’t necessarily pay for or have the bandwidth to assume that everyone is accessing the infrastructure from the outside. According to Rob Smith, an analyst with Gartner, roughly one-third of all companies are ill-equipped to send all their employees home, while another third have no remote work plan in place at all. It’s clear today that companies need to start investing in this infrastructure.
