The ability to work remotely outside of the office has been
obtainable for a few decades; however, this technology has become more
mainstream in today’s work society. Employers are finding it easier to allow
their employees to work remotely as they discover it’s relatively simple to set
up remote access with only a computer and internet connection.
Many corporations have continued to grow with the acceptance of remote positions available. Although this technology is still a new concept to many, some may find it intimidating. Consulting with a professional can make this process much simpler.
Using a VPN Connection
A VPN (virtual private network) is a standard component
within remote access solutions. A VPN
allows remote users to establish a secure connection within a computer network.
It functions by using a public network (typically an internet connection) to
connect remote sites. Virtual connections are then routed from a company’s
private network or a third-party security service provider to users of the
Private data can be transmitted across unknown networks
without the worry of a security breach within a company’s internal data or
assets. A VPN connection is initiated by a remote user logging into a corporate
server and then confirming details based on the security information provided
by either a password, IP address, or SSL certificate.
Using Remote Desktop Applications
Another option that allows for remote access is third-party software programs specializing in remote technology. This software is designed for virtually accessing your work computing equipment. There are many companies online that offer software downloads with security options and additional features. However, it is best to consult with an IT professional when considering software options for your company’s needs. Consulting with a professional will ensure that the correct security features are properly integrated and installed within your company’s infrastructure.
One disadvantage of working remotely can be the lack of face-to-face interaction that is present in an office atmosphere. Having the right technology installed can overcome this obstacle and offers enormous benefits. Video conferencing technology has become a great tool to reincorporate the human element of working remotely. Scheduling daily or weekly video calls to see your colleagues can help boost productivity and morale. As discussed previously, there are many third-party software applications to make life easier when working remotely. However, it is advised to speak with an IT consultant before installing any remote applications to your infrastructure.
