IT Tips & Solutions: Why Commute?
The Olympics are nearly here... Oh Joy! Or is it for those people who have to travel through the throngs of people all excited and not going to work!
Remote access can work for you too!
Put your hands up if you or your business were affected by the blizzards that swept the UK at the start of the year. A conservative estimate from FirstCare for the cost of the snow disruption was £0.5bn a day to UK businesses, with 14% of the workforce staying at home. How about when Eyjafjallajökull erupted? And what’s next…. Oh yes The Olympics! Or what about the fact that UK organisations are increasingly aware of the business case for work-life balance? Wouldn’t it be beneficial to provide simple, secure remote access to your essential business applications and data?
Citrix is the global leader in access infrastructure solutions and the most trusted name in secure access for enterprises and individuals. They have solutions whether you have 1, or 1000 employees. Their entry level product is GoToMyPC – access your own PC or Mac from any web browser as if you were in front of it. For small businesses this is a very cheap solution for a potentially expensive problem. For larger businesses, there’s XenApp; an application delivery solution that enables nearly any Windows application to be delivered as a service to users anywhere on any device. Both solutions can make your business more flexible by:
• Controlling and encrypting access to data and applications to improve security (no USB sticks to get lost)
• Delivering applications instantly to users anywhere
And of course, XenApp runs on the iPad too:
