Coronavirus Concerns: Make Sure Your Business Is Remote Work Ready

As concerns surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) rise, so too has a focus on the idea of remote work. In recent years, remote work has become more and more desirable for employers and employees everywhere. And now, due to current events, that desire is stronger than ever.

Whether or not a switch toward a remote model is something that your business has considered before, now is a great time to take some simple precautions in case brick and mortar becomes unviable or unsafe.

Here’s how Blue Layer can help.

Unified Communications

Communication is key in business.

Consolidate your frequently-used communication systems like phones, video conferencing, messaging services, and more into one easy-to-use platform and application that will be ready to use no matter where you find yourself.

Cloud-Based Solutions

Transform your business into a model for remote-based success without a hitch in efficiency, productivity, or connectivity with Blue Layer’s Cloud Solutions. Whatever your needs demand, Blue Layer can help you optimize cloud-based solutions that are tailored to your team. 

VPN for Remote Connectivity

Having access to corporate resources and files is critical when working away from the office.  Equally important is being able to access those files securely, just as if you were in the office.  This is where a Virtual Private Network (VPN) plays a part. Having a VPN establishes a secure connection directly to your office, no matter if you are at home or on a public wifi network.

Two-Factor Authentication

Security is essential when working remotely. Authenticating to email, VPNs, and web portals that contain your corporate data should be secured with more than just a password. Two-factor authentication is a solution to protect your systems and your data by ensuring that the people connecting are indeed who they say they are. By requiring something they have, such as a cell phone, with something they know, such as their password, you can ensure your employees are the only ones accessing your sensitive information.

The benefits of remote work are nothing new for some businesses, but the emergence of coronavirus has created an opportune time for all companies to consider something new. All of these services work together to create a seamless transition into remote work, but they are just the beginning of how Blue Layer can help your business find the right-sized IT solutions.
