Telecommuting: Planning it Right

by Admin 17. February 2009 12:02

Although gasoline prices have fallen drastically in the last few, the economy has gotten far worse. Those still employed are looking for any way possible to save money and are putting in more and more hours at work. Now, with online software like OfficeClip, workers can log in from any computer with an internet connection and manage their contacts and issues, and submit their timesheets. This means telecommuting has never been easier or more efficient.

 

Benefits and Risks


IBM estimates that teleworking can help improve worker productivity by about 20%, while reducing stress, cutting commute time and giving workers a better work/life balance. This is great news for employers and employees alike. While this seems like a good way to make workplace improvements in the current economy, a workable solution must address remote access needs of teleworkers and handle the security risks this can bring. It is important to realize that without proper security in place, an organization's sensitive information can be exposed to outsiders.

Additionally, there are risks of viruses which can be transferred from an infected device to other computers on your network and of hackers who could effectively destroy much or all of your important data and information.

None of this has to be a reason to abandon telecommuting.  There are solutions out there, such as SonicWALL, which delivers real-time security that can fit into the most demanding network infrastructures. Solutions like these ensure that employees can telecommute without risking any company information or exposing the networks to viruses or hackers.
