There's no question that
today's workforce is on the go and iTechPro can create
systems that allow your mobile workers to be as productive
outside the office as they are when in the office.
Today's mobile workforce
is using a wide range of devices - from desktops at home to
laptops to tablets and mobile phones. And all these devices
use different software and have different ways of getting
online. But the one thing they have in common - they
all need to connect to the corporate network and be able to
access email and files securely and reliably.
If your workers have a
permanent workstation at the office, then remote control of
that workstation may be a good option for mobile workers.
Most mobile devices can run software that allow the mobile
worker to control their office computer as if they were
sitting in front of it. Thus access to everything
(email, files, applications) they normally have access to
while in the office is also available while outside the
office. This method requires only the remote control
software be installed on the mobile device and thus there is
very little set up of the mobile device as compared to the
VPN method discussed below.
Virtual Private Networking does
not allow for control of another computer. Instead the
VPN is a connection that is established from the mobile
device to the corporate network that allows the mobile
device access to data stored on the network server at the
office. This data can then be used by the mobile
device just as a computer in the office uses the same data.
This method requires that all the same software installed on
the office computer also be installed on the mobile device
since the mobile device will need to use that software to
access the data through the VPN.
