Coronavirus spread is happening unabated across India as in the rest of the world. Worrying financial implications and trends have started to emerge. Large IT/ITeS companies have identified coronavirus victims and have asked employees to WFH. More will follow this. Enterprises and organizations that can swiftly move technology work capacity to digital platforms will be able to reduce the impact of the pandemic and continue to address their customers almost unhindered. This coronavirus problem has brought forward the risk of putting focus on daily operational needs instead of investing in digital business and long-term adaptability. With the pan-India lockdown imposed by the government, social distancing has become mandatory to slam the brakes on the spread of highly contagious coronavirus. In the digital world, social distancing can be limited to mere physical distancing, without disrupting communication, collaboration, teamwork and productivity. But, allowing work from home en masse using normal or traditional VPN poses serious security risks, especially for companies that come under various compliance regimes like BFSI sector. “For enterprises trying to solve remote access challenges, workspace virtualization seems to be the exact technology that fills the missing piece in the puzzle. Accops Workspace Virtualization enables enterprises to work from home without compromising the security,” said Vijender Yadav, CEO at Accops Systems. Accops offers compliant and secure work from home solutions that enable the workforce to stay productive from their homes.
