There’s a real opportunity to achieve a new level of excellence with sustainable business continuity that rivals even your best historic performances. For increasing numbers, that excellence is achieved through expanding remote work capacity and connectivity. With remote work and BYOD environments swelling rapidly to keep clients and teams connected, it’s more important than ever to keep all those new connections secure. That’s where your VPN remote access comes in.
Companies are hurriedly pivoting from predominantly on-facility to nearly 100% remote work operations in order to maintain business continuity. While meeting online is nothing new, the scale of users and variety of sources, devices, and applications represent an entirely new frontier for many. To keep mission-critical processes and systems running efficiently without disruption, more businesses of all sizes are turning to real-time, virtual collaboration tools requiring increased capacity. Businesses have the opportunity to leverage collaboration and communication features so rich, it feels like they’re in the same room as their customers and teams. An ideal opportunity to improve business processes, speed decision-making, and boost productivity. But even the most immersive solutions are only as good as they are secure. Without the right security, your new, rapidly expanding BYOD and virtual enterprise could be more vulnerable than ever before. Cyber criminals are well aware and already taking advantage.
