When remote work became the norm due to COVID-19, companies rushed to give their employees access to the tools and software they would need in order to effectively perform their jobs at home. Two years after this transition, organizations and their employees seem to be settling in.

In this article, we cover IT network challenges, what Aruba’s EdgeConnect Microbranch is, and how it can help your enterprise stay protected while working from home.

More than 20 years ago in 1999, Salesforce launched its customer relationship management (CRM) platform at salesforce.com. Little did we know that this would kickstart the realization of Software-as-a-Service. And roughly ten years ago, Infrastructure-as-a-Service came on the scene to become a standard deployment method of servers.

In today’s rapidly changing work environments, enterprises can no longer mix and match solutions in an attempt to provide security for on-premises and remote employees. Instead, enterprises need one solution that can provide comprehensive, holistic security from edge-to-cloud.

These days, more enterprises than ever are undergoing digital transformations to modernize their operations and keep up with the competition. Technologies like cloud computing, mobile tools and various IoT (Internet of Things) solutions are being adopted to power these transformations.
An article in the New York Times dated March 18, 2020 says it best, “Tech can make remote work miserable.” As companies across the country send their employees home to work remotely in an effort to keep them safe and abide by government orders, millions of employees new to the idea of working from home are realizing the tech headaches involved in it. An astonishing 50+ percent of the U.S. is now working from home according to the latest estimates. That’s roughly 85 million people. While the involved numbers should be a surprise, the fact that many of these users have poor or inadequate wireless at home to utilize for work shouldn’t be.

As the demand for mobility at work increases, laptops, smartphones, tablets and Internet of Things (IoT) devices are pouring into the workplace. On average, employees utilize three different devices at a time – and all of them increase vulnerabilities inside your enterprise.
