Be prepared for whatever happens. Enable remote work in your secure digital perimeter and ensure productivity no matter what occurs.
In the case of an emergency, how do enterprises and organizations ensure the safety of their workers? The unfortunate rise of the Coronavirus is making many ask just that question. In fact, major tech players, Google, Microsoft and Twitter, have urged their employees to work from home. That’s all well and good for enterprises that have the infrastructure for it. But what about those that don’t? More than ever, the real implications of the virus sweeping the world shows how important it is for companies of all sizes to have an effective remote work solution in place.
Desktop Virtualization and Enabling Remote Work
Many organizations have already integrated desktop virtualization into their secure digital perimeter. Thanks to desktop virtualization, employees can provision desktops for their workers, no matter where they are. With solutions like Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop, for example, employees can access critical apps and data while avoiding common security threats.
When it comes to remote work, Stratodesk also helps lighten the load on IT. Stratodesk NoTouch Center enables seamless, automated management for all devices from the security of one location. It is available on-premises or in the Cloud as NoTouch Cloud. Meanwhile, Stratodesk NoTouch OS deploys across all endpoints, x86 and ARM, and repurposes them into Linux-based endpoints.
This means that end users can access their corporate network without a local Windows installation on endpoints. IT, meanwhile, benefits from complete control over endpoints, and the ability to easily sort out IT problems.
The Raspberry Pi is the Ideal Disaster Scenario Device
Providing seamless user experience via virtual desktops is one thing. But what happens when you don’t have the hardware devices necessary to enable thousands of workers to work remotely? Imagine a scenario like the one we face today, when an unexpected virus breaks out and all of your workers must access work remotely at the same time, as easily as if they were coming in for a normal office day. Raspberry Pis can help. In fact, many companies are already using the Raspberry Pi for remote work. The advantage here is that Raspberry Pis are cheap. They can be rolled out quickly. And they are an ideal alternative to traditional x86 devices.
Stratodesk runs on Raspberry Pis, and easily manages them via NoTouch Center.
