The workplace has changed greatly in the last 20 years with the advent of the internet. In the days of old, employees who worked from home were almost nonexistent. Nowadays, the number of remote employees has risen over the years and looks to grow even more as time goes on. This is a boon for those employees who need to be remote (family situations, on the road, etc.) but it also spreads the office IT department thin on coverage.
It’s one thing to cover the actual office space, it’s quite another to extend that coverage to users who access the network from the outside as remote workers. Using cloud-based platforms with remote access and DIA helps in this regard as more companies are going to the remote access model in the future.
