The COVID-19 pandemic, arguably the greatest human crisis of our times, has changed the way we think about business as usual.
And while the first priority for any business is to secure the health and safety of the workforce, ensuring economic sustainability is a close second.
The pandemic has restricted people from gathering in large groups due to the inherent health hazards. The result—a dramatic shift towards a remote working and work from home model.
With a WFH model, enterprises can ensure productivity and maintain operations during these trying times.
Work from home will become the new normal even after COVID-19. Organizations need to step up and mitigate any and all security concerns to ensure the welfare of employees, customers, and the economy.
To ensure minimal service disruptions and optimal business continuity, scaling the work-from-home (WFH) model in a secure manner is a critical priority, but it poses a number of challenges:
- Capacity issues on the existing infrastructure for remote connectivity in a more secured way
- Ensuring visibility of user activity
- Enacting a secure BYOD policy
- Monitoring third-party access to vital systems and data
- Employee protection from digital threats
Securing the remote workforce of today, and the future, requires new protocols and tools.
HCL has developed a suite of solutions that are perfectly adapted to address the security threats presented by the demand for work from home.
We help organizations assess and scale their existing remote working capabilities in order to ensure business continuity.
The ultimate lesson from the COVID-19 pandemic is simple: organizations and institutions need to act proactively in the face of uncertainty and risk.
By leveraging secure technology solutions, we can create a sustainable, conscious, and environmentally friendly model of living and working for the future.
