Empowering your staff to work away from the office is nothing new, but on their own devices is and requires close management. With the divide between what are personal and corporate devices becoming blurred, the management and protection of corporate data becomes more prevalent.
The first thing to ensure is that your company has a robust policy in place, offering staff a clear direction on what is acceptable. Built over the top of these policies are the IT tools to guarantee they are adhered to.
A Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) solution is the practice of hosting a desktop operating system and applications, within a virtual machine, located on the company’s server infrastructure. Most commonly the server infrastructure is located within a server room. However, with the maturity of cloud services, the infrastructure running VDI could be housed offsite, in a secure data centre.
VDI technology, and the location of the server infrastructure, enables the same level of remote access to the company’s systems from machines located in the office, at home or a mobile device via 3G.
BYOD is gaining pace in the SME arena having been keenly adopted in the corporate world. But there are pro’s and con’s to allowing your staff to select and use their own devices for work.
