In the wake of the COVID-19 discovery, a lot of sudden changes have happened: schools and universities are closing, mass gatherings are cancelled, and the government is pushing companies to implement ‘Work From Home’ strategies.
Our recommendation is that in order to provide an effective solution that can be deployed rapidly, clients should focus on scaling existing deployed and familiar technology to your users to minimize disruption to operations.
- What are the key systems and tools that workers need to access?
- Do any critical systems have connectivity limitations outside the corporate network?
- What infrastructure & tools are in place to enable remote work currently?
- Do you have any governance or compliance restrictions on remote access?
- Do you have authentication in place to maintain security requirements?
- Can your current infrastructure handle the load from increased remote connectivity?
- Do you have licensing to distribute connectivity tools at scale?
- How will information about tools and requirements be distributed to users?
- Will corporate devices require any updates or software to enable connectivity?
- How will access from personal devices be managed?
- What support will be available to users with connectivity issues?
