The ability to work remotely has become an increasing need for businesses of all sizes. Some of your customers may already have a trusted business continuity plan in place, others are just starting the discussion. Working remote is convenient and sometimes a necessity in times of uncertainty. We often think of natural disasters as a cause for a business continuity plan to go active. However, there are MANY circumstances that can impact a business’s need to have their employees work remotely. In this blog, we will share tips for MSPs to help ensure their customers can work remotely, and to do so securely.
Thankfully, technology has improved our ability to effectively work remotely. However, team members working in multiple locations outside the office can increase vulnerabilities.
