The global spread of COVID-19 has led to a rapid shift of companies in the UAE moving to working from home and relying on remote work tools now more than ever, in an effort to maintain business continuity. For many companies, this is the first time where teams are having to collaborate, operate and communicate virtually through the power of technology.
As a result, the demand for true mobility in the workplace – where users are able to seamlessly transition between multiple workspaces irrespective of the device they are using – has increased, and with this comes an increasing expectation that their connected workspace will always be available and accessible over any network.
Our Workspace Mobility Solution not only vastly improves the user experience but also delivers significant benefits to IT departments, freeing up valuable resources to support future digital transformation initiatives.
Secure access to all corporate data & applications
Evolving employee and business demands are reshaping the workplace as we know it. Where once a workspace was quite simply a desktop accessed through a PC or laptop, workspaces have evolved to incorporate critical components including data and applications. The number of applications being accessed is increasing at a rapid pace, and the volume of business data being generated is doubling every single year.
With nearly three-quarters of UAE workforces now spending part of their week working outside of their traditional work or office environment, it is a crucial requirement for IT to be able to seamlessly and securely deliver virtual applications and data to employees – regardless of the device, location or network they are accessing from. Securely empowering employees with seamless access to each of the components of their workspaces is key to optimising productivity and increasing a business’ agility.
Seamlessly transition between any workspace
Consumerisation has accelerated the expectations of how people want to work and the devices that they want and expect to use. From a time where they were simply end users of IT, to a time where they are consumers who leverage technology in order to work in a way most effective to meet business objectives. High-performance and powerful devices, and improving connectivity have fuelled our expectation for a workspace that is ‘always on’ and our dependency on achieving a full desktop experience anywhere.
As a result, BYOD, CYOD, COPE initiatives have flooded the workplace – with an anticipation that by the end of the year there will be 30 billion devices connected to the internet. Indeed in many cases, it has become the norm for employees to use 3+ devices per day to access corporate resources. The percentage of personal devices in the workplace is growing dramatically – with reportedly 40% of companies having stopped providing corporate devices – heightening the need to facilitate the seamless transition between devices and subsequent workspaces.
Simplify complexity for security
This proliferation of devices has in some cases opened businesses up to security concerns relating to storing sensitive business data, which in turn increases a business’ vulnerability. The security and management demands presented by new levels of mobility expectations can be challenging. Particularly in relation to the protection of intellectual property and sensitive information, which is paramount in any digital workspace solution.
