The past eighteen months have been quite eventful on the IT infrastructure front. Enterprises had to rapidly pivot towards remote work during the early days of the pandemic. Now, things are taking yet another turn and businesses need to adjust.
As we enter the re-opening phase of both economies and workplaces, IT managers again have a lot on their plates. Right now, we are witnessing a move from remote work towards a hybrid workforce model.
Many studies during the early days of the pandemic, and even the later ones, have revealed that remote work is here to stay, although it is likely to take a hybrid shape. Some employees will work remotely, while others will come up to the workplace.
Challenges of a Remote and Hybrid Workforce
From the perspective of an IT manager, it makes little difference whether you are working completely remotely or showing up at the workplace every now and then. For all intents and purposes, you are outside the “security shell” of the corporate network.
This remote or hybrid work, as the case may be, gives rise to a host of security and data privacy challenges for IT managers. In this post, we will cover those issues and also discuss why dinCloud’s DaaS offering is the right answer to those needs.
Data Privacy and Protection
If your remote or hybrid employees use their personal devices for work, or overlap their official laptops with personal stuff, this is a major threat vector. This threat further escalates when bulk of the activity is taking place over mostly insecure networks.
With dinHVD, the DaaS solution by ace Cloud Service Provider (CSP) dinCloud, none of your enterprise data is stored over individual employee devices. It instead lies within the secure data centers of dinCloud, which have multi layered physical and cyber security controls.
So, even if your employees use their own devices, or perform personal tasks over their official devices, this does not pose any threat of loss, corruption or theft to your sensitive company data. With Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, you even save costs.
Most enterprises want their hybrid work solutions to be cost efficient, in addition to being secure. This is yet another area where dinCloud’s DaaS offering enjoys a notable advantage over traditional, on premise servers or data centers.
To setup any such infrastructure on premise for your hybrid workforce, you will need to invest heavily in the hardware first, and then even further to secure it. Secondly, you will need to constantly spend on the maintenance of this entire infrastructure as well.
The DaaS solution by dinCloud, on the other hand, results in hefty cost savings, because we offer a flat rate pricing model for our DaaS offerings. This takes all the guesswork out of the equation and you enjoy highly competitive and no-nonsense transparent pricing.
Ease of Management via dinManage
One thing that may be worrisome is complexity in managing a DaaS solution, in cases where your DaaS provider does not lend a hand. At dinCloud, we have dinManage, which is our indigenous Cloud Management Portal for your entire DaaS environment.
Via dinManage, you not only get full visibility into your DaaS deployment, but you can easily manage the entire environment from a single interface. We empower you to perform nearly all management related tasks about your DaaS solution via dinManage.
The world around us is changing and while we are moving past a devastating pandemic, it appears that remote and hybrid work will continue to remain a mainstream trend. So, adopting a robust DaaS solution like dinWorkspaces is the way forward.
With proper planning and a reliable DaaS provider like dinCloud by your side, you will not only be able to support a remote as well as hybrid workforce, but will also be preparing your enterprise for any imminent disruptions in the future.
