Working Remotely – The New Normal

It is safe to say that the working lives for most of us have changed considerably in the last week or so, as we find ourselves working from the comfort of our own homes. We are combining working life with the usual tasks we face in our home lives, something which I am sure raises many mixed emotions. Many are learning rapidly that work doesn’t have to be confined to the four walls of the office, instead today’s workforce can work securely from anywhere. For many of us, this has meant that we have been able to continue our day to day lives, without impacting our health or others around us.

I have found the transition to the “new normal” a smooth experience, as I spend 80% of my working week working remotely. However, I am sure that this transition hasn’t been quite as smooth for everyone. Many businesses are looking at their Agile Workspace solutions to                                                                        ensure that their staff can work remotely and securely.

At Metaphor IT, our team of experts understand that providing secure remote access to essential Enterprise applications and data has never been more important.

In today’s organisations a secure remote access strategy must account for a much larger and far more diverse population of users and devices, requiring highly reliable and secure access to a much broader spectrum of resources. Metaphor IT combines virtual desktop technology with secure application delivery to ensure solutions that boast flexibility, as well as maintaining security.

With times changing and with uncertainty in the air, I realise now, just how privileged I am to work within a flexible environment.
