If your work habits are anything like those of most businesspeople today, chances are good that you often work from home or on the road, away from your office. And if you’re like most people, chances are also good that at least once you’ve forgotten a computer file that you really needed to have access to, and found yourself scrambling back to the office or calling an assistant for help late at night. There are plenty of work-arounds for this problem—burning CDs with critical files, emailing files to your home email account, and even USB flash drives. But the fact is that all of these solutions present real security risks in the form of lost or hacked data.
Fortunately, there are viable software-based and hosted-service remote access solutions that address these security shortcomings. Both types of remote access management systems offer you and your employees the ability to access your network from remote locations, and both take provisions for the security of your computer, your network, and your data. But which one is right for your company? Factors that will play into this decision include your budget, the number of remote users you will need to support, and the amount of bandwidth each user will require.
Taking these factors into consideration, an IT consultant at Menkom can offer you the right advice so you can make the right choice.
