Enterprises have started looking at Work from Home (WFH) in a whole new light. Not long ago, in the earlier weeks and months of the Covid-19 crisis, WFH was viewed primarily as a makeshift arrangement.
With remote work or WFH a well established norm rather than exception, companies are re-evaluating their existing IT infrastructures in the context of WFH capability. This new trend has turned out to be a “win for all” scenario, at least for now.
Employers are more than happy due to the massive reduction, and elimination in some cases, of massive operating overheads associated with the physical workplace. Employees working from home are also reaping tremendous benefits from remote work.
For instance, just consider the time savings and mental stress that was involved in the daily commute to the office, especially during the rush hours of work. With WFH, that is not at all the case.
Despite all this, the new WFH trend has also brought along its fair share of security challenges. This is where cloud powered solutions such as Desktop as a Service (DaaS) come in the bigger picture.
These Cloud Hosted Virtual Desktops are offered by third party Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud. In addition to the benefits of having a sound remote work platform in the form of DaaS, companies are also able to plug many gaps in cyber security.
This presents a tremendous window of opportunity for specialized CSPs like dinCloud. With a wide array of cloud solutions that are suited to a lot of remote work scenarios, cloud providers can capture the recently emerged Work from Home (WFH) market.
An overwhelming majority of surveys has revealed that remote work is here to stay, most likely for good. Therefore, enterprises that are still prospecting for long term remote work platforms must give the Cloud a serious thought.
