Work Wise Week brings secure remote working to the fore

Aruba Networks : 13 May, 2009  (Technical Article)
Mobile workers become the focus of attention during work wise week with companies re-examining their security policies to cater for remote and mobile workers
Tuesday 12th May marked the beginning of Work Wise Week 2009 - an initiative to promote smarter working practices such as flexible, remote and home working. It is an opportunity for organisations across the UK to evaluate and improve their current mobile working policies to accommodate today's changing employee requirements.

Roger Hockaday, Director of Marketing EMEA at Aruba Networks - a global leader in secure mobility solutions - has made the following comments:

"Work Wise Week is a fantastic way to raise awareness of the need for secure, flexible working capabilities in every organisation. With recent changes to flexible working legislation, fresh memories of this year's snow day and the ever increasing threat of a global swine flu pandemic, the issue of remote working is well and truly under the microscope - and organisations would do well to adapt their existing policies accordingly.

"However, this workplace revolution will not happen overnight, particularly because many businesses are stuck in the dark ages when it comes to providing staff with remote access. The concept of flexible working still conjures up sorely outdated perceptions of complexity, poor security and stacks of expensive hardware - when, in fact, facilitating smarter remote working practices couldn't be simpler or more cost-effective, provided a proper strategy is in place.

"Rather than concentrating on a single 'work from home' or 'remote office' day each year, the focus should now be on how to establish long-term measures to cope with the sudden and unexpected inability to travel into the office at any given time. By investing in appropriate equipment to ensure the seamless delivery of enterprise voice, video and data applications on the go, IT managers can move beyond reliance on just a laptop and Internet connection and ensure maximum productivity from 21st Century home and remote workers 24 hours a day, seven days a week."
