Key considerations for delivering secure, unparalleled remote access

Now, more than ever, digital transformation is the rocket fuel companies are using to boost productivity, engage consumers, and empower their people. It is spurring organizations of every size to reimagine how work gets done by creating secure digital workspaces that are designed to foster agility, enhance service levels and accelerate time to success.

For users, it’s creating a renaissance. No longer tethered to corporate desks and cubicles, employees are working successfully as virtual teams—communicating and collaborating anytime, anywhere, using the applications and devices they need. And according to recent surveys, this trend shows no signs of slowing. Almost half of all employees are now spending at least part of their day working remotely.*

Unfortunately for IT, this on-demand, work-from-anywhere environment is creating new workflow challenges and security risks. In many cases, admins are lacking end-to-end visibility and control and they are increasingly struggling to deliver an optimal user experience for their employees and customers.

To help stem the onslaught, 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 leverage different types of applications, creating a poor user experience.

There has to be a better way. As branch offices and remote workers become more pervasive, the need for an effective balance between usability and security has never been more paramount.

Fortunately, there is hope. The next generation of remote access solutions offer many powerful capabilities that can help overcome the infrastructure challenges and security risks that today’s distributed enterprises 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 business applications regardless of where they’re located or how they are deployed.
  • An effective way to consolidate infrastructure (finally!) – Say goodbye to legacy WANs with expensive MPLS connections. These new solutions provide one URL and streamline your remote access infrastructure – helping to reduce IT costs and improve the ease of enforcing 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 end-to-end visibility into your app traffic, ensuring higher uptime and reducing help-desk calls.

It’s time to make your secure digital workspace work even better—with a modern remote access solution.
