Remote access to a corporate network, usually via a VPN (Virtual Private Network), has become the norm in most modern business IT infrastructure. It allows remote workers, such as sales teams or on-site engineers, easy access to the business’ information and applications that they need to do their job. It has also allowed the rise in working remotely, often from home, which in turn helps with recruitment of the right people without their needing to relocate.
When employees are provided with remote access, they are freed from having to be in one specific location during working hours which aids flexible working. It has been widely reported that allowing employees to work remotely boosts their productivity, reduces stress and improves their engagement at work.
Remote Access Through The Cloud
The wider adoption of the Cloud as the modern environment for business infrastructure has taken remote access technology to the next level. Now, all files and applications for the whole organisation are served from the cloud and with the proper security protocols in place, they can be accessed from any computer with a link to the internet.
If the company has a ‘Workspace’ or VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) in place, then windows and other software will also be served from the cloud, giving the same desktop appearance as your office based work-station with the same applications, file and folder locations and the same communication tools. This can be mirrored on any PC, Laptop, Tablet, Terminal or Smartphone in any location with an internet connection.
