Remote network access, If you own a business, what steps are you taking to transition your employees to a work-from-home environment? Remote network access is critical - pandemic or not -- especially if most or all of your workforce is conducting business from their homes. 

The owner of each company must maintain his company and its continued operation, customer happiness and productivity at a constant level, and working people, so remote access to the network must be enabled for its employees.

What You Need to Know: Remote Access Solutions

Telecommuting not only helps companies cut overhead costs and allows employees to juggle work with personal engagements at their own pace, but it also facilitates a more productive "work at your own schedule" situation.

There are many ways you can create remote job opportunities for your company. you may:

  • Choose a fully virtual private network.

  • Deploy remote desktop access.

  • You need to do a cloud computing network setup and file sharing between home offices to develop a virtual office setup.

Virtual Private Network

Pros

  • This is a very good option for companies wanting to provide intermittent or full-time access to remote work solutions; However, remote devices must be properly secured and protocols followed.

  • Because the encryption protocols make the transmission of information between the VPN and the end-users completely secure.

  • The VPN itself is not vulnerable to a direct attack.

Cons

  • If computers are not protected and secure, they can transfer viruses and malware to a VPN. A VPN connection can make your system vulnerable if employees don't disconnect when finished.

  • It is more difficult to set up than to access a remote desktop.

Remote desktop access solutions

You must enable Remote Desktop access in one of three ways:

  • Remote access software

  • Enterprise remote desktop

  • Direct remote access

Remote access software solutions are less secure at their most basic level, with limited centralized control of employee log-in and remote access. The cost of this solution is higher, and direct remote access is free. Still, this is a solid choice for smaller companies with intermittent work-from-home needs.

Enterprise remote desktop solutions are more scalable but harder to set up. Because they provide a seamless experience and their work is through hosted solutions, which come at an increased cost, however - the ease of setup is better than having to build this infrastructure yourself.

Therefore, direct remote access needs to follow appropriate security protocols to ensure that the system is not exposed to an attack. It can be difficult to remotely restart a computer that has frozen. Also, many hardware issues will have to be addressed on-site.

Cloud Network Remote Work

Remote network access, This is a good choice if you are opting to work from a complete virtual office, as these solutions offer additional flexibility and cost benefits. They do hold some risks because it's difficult to control what employees are doing with their hardware at home.

What to Consider

Check out these factors to consider when deciding on a type and provider of remote access and work solutions:

  • Ease-of-Installation: How much time is involved? How much effort? Will it cause downtime in operations as the transition happens?

  • This easy solution - can your employees or IT department easily use it?

  • What does each solution cost versus how much will it save your company?

  • Security: How secure is the option you're considering? How reliant is it on clients' capacity to follow expressed conventions?
