The recent pandemic has changed how businesses globally are conducting their day-to-day operations. With the need for many companies to have their staff work from home and the intricacies that environment entails, finding the right IT solution and executing it expeditiously can be a challenge.
Many have resorted to having employees use their home computer to dial into the corporate office and access resources; however, this opens them up to a sleuth of security vulnerabilities. Who’s to say that the home computer children use to purchase game currency with isn’t a petri dish of viruses and malware?
The work-from-home model comes with a disadvantage. The lack of oversight on employees limits the ability to see performance metrics in real-time. This inability to monitor employee performance can be a real problem when the only way to discover employee laziness is when you lose business.
When implementing this work-from-home solution, businesses either have an internal IT department, or an external managed IT services provider who design and implement the right solution. It’s essential to utilize a competent IT team as a guide through these interesting times.
