“The world's biggest work-from-home experiment has been triggered by coronavirus” is a CNN headline released in mid-February 2020. The virus outbreak is driving homeworking in all impacted countries today. Many businesses – and governments – are demanding employees and citizens to work from home in an attempt to slow down and contain the virus outbreak, as well as assure business continuity. Luckily, Awingu can help you enable secure and easy remote working in a matter of hours!
The demand for homeworking is exploding because of Covid-19 measures being taken worldwide. As it turns out, a lot of organizations are not scaled to provide secure homeworking. Not all employees are equipped with laptops, VPN or VDI platforms are not scaled for mass usage, et cetera. In attempts to keep the business running, IT departments are taking urgent measures in scaling for mobile and homework. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen with security best practices in mind:
In this blog post, we’ll explain how organizations that don’t have a VDI setup (or a Server Based Computing platform), nor equip staff with managed laptops, can still enable secure homeworking with BYOD through Awingu. For clarity: Awingu is often used in Server Based Computing context in combination with RDS (Remote Desktop Service). This is a different scenario.
BYOD or ‘bring your own device’ is a trend that has been on the rise for the past decade. Many companies have either fully deployed their BYOD strategy or are investigating how to loosen their policies to enable their workforce to work from anywhere, on any device – even if it’s not one that is managed by the company.
