Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. together with its IT Services division, All Covered, announced the launch of two comprehensive solutions designed to support and enable a remote workforce.
The ‘Remote Work’ and ‘Home Assurance’ platforms are designed to equip organisations with the resources, security and processes required to enable a permanent remote workforce.
COVID-19 has dramatically accelerated digital transformation, evolving our understanding of the workplace. And with new paradigms of work emerging, Konica Minolta said it recognises that remote work will become the norm, with 48% of employees reportedly planning to work remotely full-time post-pandemic.
With this, the All Covered team has created a ‘Remote Work’ package which combines hardware and solutions to enable the flexibility, collaboration, speed, ease of use and secure access to content that is essential to businesses. The solution bundles the technology employees need to work outside of the office, including laptops, wireless headsets, printers and access to a service desk during business hours.
Konica Minolta sees technology will be key to ensure that businesses successfully avoid any pitfalls this new work environment will present. In response to this, the team has also developed the ‘Home Assurance’ package to help customers set up a secure remote work environment to ensure business continuity.
“Ensuring a secure remote workforce is critical to business continuity,” said Glenn Mathis, Vice President, Global Client Services and Solutions, All Covered. “There are increasing risks that must be considered due to home networks being exposed to malware, phishing, ransomware and hackers piggybacking through a VPN to the corporate network.”
Home Assurance offers security for the home office, where a VPN connection may be vulnerable to security gaps. All Covered’s optimised, fully-managed VPN connectivity, paired with multi-layered security best practices ensures business data integrity regardless of where employees may be working.
Remote Work and Home Assurance ensure businesses can operate smoothly with remote workforces by providing technology that is available, productive and protected, no matter where employees are located.
