How to solve remote work problems once and for all

More than 87% of people work from home at least part time, and companies everywhere continue to struggle in serving and securing their distributed workforce. The problems of remote work and hybrid work models are not easily overcome, because they reach across complex IT arenas and come with high stakes:

  • Rethinking security for a business without borders: Securing every device, cloud application, and connection type, IT is responsible for protecting data whether it’s in the cloud, managed by third-parties, or traversing the public internet.
  • Managing collaboration tools: Panic-stricken purchases have left companies with a menagerie of communications applications. Today, IT teams have more vendors, apps, dashboards, and costs that now need to be consolidated into one simple solution.
  • Delivering uninterrupted user experiences: When employees are connecting to the network in a variety of ways, IT teams are expected to manage application performance, putting the right bandwidth in the right place—or risk lost productivity and lost revenue.

With remote and hybrid work here to stay, it’s time to develop a permanent solution that is secure and reliable, but also sustainable for the long haul. That means looking holistically at how to deliver cloud communications, remote connectivity, and security—versus solving each of these problems with point solutions that can further compound IT complexity.

That’s where Masergy comes in.
