“Remote work,” or teleworking, is an increasingly important concept as organizations attempt to become more flexible and agile while driving down costs. IDC reports that there are 1.3 billion mobile workers today; that number is expected to grow to 1.6 billion by 2015.
By enabling employees and contractors to have the same, seamless computing experience from any location and any computer, organizations can expect increased productivity. The U.S. and Canadian governments, among others, have become major proponents of the telework concept as a way to reduce costs, support “green” initiatives, and keep government open when access to the office is not an option.
The secure mobile workspace, or PC-on-a-stick portable desktop, holds the promise of allowing an IT organization to embrace worker mobility, workplace agility and “bring your own device” (BYOD) – while safeguarding data and network access with more granularity and security than with a corporate-provided computer.
