Working Remotely with the Right Access

We have all been there…..we are on vacation, but we need to keep up with projects or various work items while we are out.  It’s a drag to lug your laptop along and try to get good enough coverage from some locations to get onto VPN so you can access your files on the network.  According to a Citrix Mobility Report, 61% of workers report working outside the office at least part of the time.  The majority of us are increasingly accessing the web and applications from a smartphone or tablet.

According to IDC, mobility has become synonymous with productivity and I certainly agree with that.  I am a perfect example of the mobile trend.  I need to be mobile, have access to my files and be able to work from anywhere, anytime. If your organization doesn’t make it easy to access the files you need to do your job, it’s tempting when you are leaving the office to put the files you might need outside the network on some non-authorized provider like Dropbox or Google Docs, but you know it’s against company policy.

So, how do you work remotely on your mobile device(s), meet company requirements, and maintain your flexibility and productivity?  One way to do that is to leverage Nexsan Unity unified storage.  Unity is installed in the data center as unified storage, but it delivers so much more.  Unity is a unique offering in the storage market because it includes enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) at no additional charge.  So, you get the Dropbox-like features you need and can meet the privacy and security requirements, not break the company rules, and stay productive while traveling or working remotely.
