BYOO: "Bring your own office"
With the ever increasing speed of home internet connections and the advent of cloud based software the potential for staff to work from home is greater than ever. Staff can now do all the same work they could before from the comfort of their own homes utilising cloud applications, video conferencing, and team collaboration software such as Slack and Microsoft Teams to do all the same work they would have done in a traditional office based setup.
Working from home does come with some key considerations though. How will staff access key applications and data? Importantly, how can staff access this data securely without risking it falling into the wrong hands. In recent years it has been a case of securing staff own devices in so called "Bring your own device" agreements, but now staff are bringing their own office entirely and their own network and hardware all of which now need supporting and securing. Plus business owners need to know their staff are productive, accountable, and secure.
