Working from home can now be as productive and secure as being in the office.
ConnectivityConsider upgrading the router that you use for your home internet connection from the default one from your provider. You can then use this to create a secure connection via a VPN that makes an encrypted link from your home internet connection to the office. This gives you access to your servers and data, and lets you browse files directly, without having to move or copy data from the network in any way.Getting a business broadband line at home will give you more consistent internet, as your traffic can be prioritised over home users. It will also give you a static IP address, which will further improve security and speed up multi-factor authentication approvals.Extend your business Wi-Fi network to home locations. This will increase the security of Wi-Fi devices and only allow company-secured devices to access the network. This works particularly well when you have a business router with a static VPN connection back to company resources.
CommunicationUsing cloud services for telephony through Microsoft Teams means you can make and receive calls from your business using any device that has an internet connection.
CloudUtilise a file sharing platform, such as Share Point or One Drive, through Office 365. You can protect this with additional security features that prevent people sending, printing, or downloading sensitive information to non-work devices.
