Work at home or anywhere

Empower your remote workforce with secure connectivity and cloud collaboration

Work and collaborate from any device, anywhere

The world is demanding new ways of working. Globalization, the always-on business, and Millennials are all challenging executives to rethink their business models.

What you need to enable a work-from-anywhere business model

  • IT teams must have the underlying network agility, applications, and security to enable working from anywhere
  • Secure network access must deliver VPN connections on a mass scale, all while making security built-in
  • Corporate communications tools must deliver high-quality VoIP and video conferencing across the globe
  • Contact centers must migrate to cloud applications in order to accommodate at-home agents

5X increase in WFH

The number of employees working at least 60% of the time from home has exploded 5X — up from just 16% in January to more than 77% as of March 2020.

Secure remote access from the pioneer in SD-networking

Work-from-anywhere and bring-your-own device policies can strain legacy WAN infrastructure and increase the security attack vector. VPNs should be fast and easy to deploy, providing the security enterprises require.

VPN connections

When every remote employee becomes a branch office to provision, Masergy offers SD-branch solutions and rapid-deploy VPN connections backed by software-defined agility and built-in security.

Masergy’s global network and cloud platform is built entirely on software-defined architecture, all across the world. The result is that dialing up and down connections, tunnels, links, loops, and bandwidth is faster and easier when compared to legacy networks governed by manual processes.

Built-in security

Home Wi-Fi routers and work-issued devices shared at home can become new attack vectors for hackers to exploit, but Masergy mitigates security risks using cloud firewalls that make it easy to open SSL tunnels and secure them with 24/7 threat monitoring and response services.

Clients also gain access to endpoint detection and response, identity-based WAN analytics, cloud security technologies like Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and more.

Real-time analytics and control

Large-scale changes to IP traffic routing can drastically reduce overall network bandwidth. That’s why Masergy’s network portal delivers real-time analytics and on-demand bandwidth controls to help you track and instantly optimize resources for large numbers of VPN users.

Best of all, VPN changes are simple to understand from a billing perspective, as clients get one invoice with clear line items for services.

Powering productivity with best-of-breed cloud applications

Access to cloud applications is the first thing employees need to work from home, but it’s not just about handing out licenses to cloud communications tools. IT leaders need to take a holistic approach to cloud migration and technology enablement.

Digital collaboration tools: Email and phone calls alone are not enough–remote workers require more tools to stay connected. Video conferencing maintains the cultural structure of the virtual enterprise, and Team Collaboration applications solve a multitude of needs from file sharing to getting questions answered quickly. Masergy’s unified communications solutions are powered by Cisco, so you get best-of-breed cloud applications alongside a fully managed service that delivers a world-class experience.

SIP-powered migration and guaranteed performance: Two IT challenges typically stand in the way of migrating communications to the cloud–existing PBX systems and the high-quality network service needed to deliver crystal clear VoIP and video conferences. The good news is, Masergy solves both problems. With SIP trunking and complete PSTN replacement, you don’t have to abandon your old PBX systems. Instead you can overlay new technologies, migrating on a schedule that works with your needs. Plus, Masergy embeds Cisco Webex applications into our software-defined network platform, so your global users get pristine audio, video, and team collaboration–all with service quality guarantees and built-in security.

Dialing satisfaction up with at-home agents

Setting up virtual agents can be intimidating, but cloud contact center applications make it simple. Agents just need a computer, an internet connection and a softphone with a headset. Powered by Cisco, Masergy’s Cloud Contact Center solutions natively support agents working from home–regardless of endpoints or physical location.

Virtual contact center management tools: Managing at-home agents requires visibility and on-demand tools, which are the centerpiece of Masergy’s offerings. From virtual agents, dynamic scheduling with agent participation, quality management, to a plethora of analytics and “voice-of-the-customer” insights, you’ll have the information you need to manage remotely. And don’t stress about changes–it takes only a few clicks to make call routing adjustments.

5-day quick deployment options: If you’re looking to quickly ramp up at-home agents, Masergy’s quick-deploy solutions can help you rapidly implement applications and services. In about five days, Masergy can have agents up and running with included toll/local number access.
