According to Harvard Business Review, when done right, ‘’all-remote organizations may indeed emerge as the future of work’’. Now more than ever, there’s an undeniable need for technologies that enable work anywhere, whether in the office or at home.
For employees, stable network connectivity is essential to make productivity possible outside office premises. Easy access to work tools and applications while working remotely is also fundamental. On the other hand, employers must ensure the security of vital information that’s being handled by employees outside the office. These challenges, if not prioritized, will be major roadblocks to a company’s progress in a digital landscape.
Addressing the challenges of digital transformation
Globe Work Anywhere Solution addresses these challenges through three key technologies: connectivity, the Cloud, and cybersecurity. Each of these plays a role in a business’ digital transformation; Connectivity provides the base, the Cloud serves as the virtual infrastructure for remote work, while cybersecurity ensures the protection of applications and data. The Solution bridges office setups to homes by introducing digital productivity tools that enable the workforce to work anywhere.
“We came up with our Work Anywhere Solution to enable businesses to embrace remote and hybrid work setups. The Solution allows access to connectivity, the foundation of digital transformation; the Cloud, which empowers the workforce to access their work tools from anywhere; and cybersecurity, a must-have in today’s digital world,” shared Raymond Policarpio, Vice President for Product Management & Marketing for Globe Business, Enterprise Group.
The complete virtual work environment that Globe Work Anywhere Solution provides allows users to work efficiently, remotely, and securely as if they were in a centralized office setting. The platform is also simple to deploy and manage, making it accessible to business owners with limited IT knowledge. Furthermore, through the usage of fixed broadband on a fiber network, intermittent Internet connectivity and constant service disruption are things of the past with Globe Work Anywhere Solution.
Industry-leading cybersecurity for your business
While businesses are now more open to the idea of adapting to remote work and hybrid work setups, one must not forget that having operations across different locations increases a company’s exposure to cybersecurity threats. In fact, the cost of data breaches increased from $3.86 million to $4.24 million in 2021–with an average cost that increased by $1.07 million due to remote work.
Protection against sophisticated or even simple malicious actors is often overlooked by system administrators. Therefore, making sure businesses have the right security coverage is a keystone of Globe’s new offering.
“There are a lot of benefits to digitalization enabled by connectivity and the Cloud. However, it does tend to heighten your exposure to cyber-attacks. So, you need to have a cybersecurity strategy along with your digitalization journey,” said Policarpio.
Ensuring that all devices that employees use for work are secure and protected from cyber-attacks is a key tenet of cybersecurity. This becomes a challenge when considering the number of employees and the varying levels of access afforded to each one of them.
Globe Work Anywhere Solution handles this challenge by providing a centralized platform to set up and issue secure virtual work environments for all employees. This eliminates the need to handle physical devices individually and also enforces a standard set of cybersecurity policies for all users, with special rights being only granted by the IT team to those who need it.
A specialized virtual platform to host your files
The Cloud, made accessible by Globe Work Anywhere Solution, enables convenience and efficiency by delivering technologies that can store company files; deploy work tools; amass data analytics; develop new software, and more. A cloud platform ensures ease of use for collaboration among teams, across devices, and guarantees that the digital work environment adheres to company policies.
With Globe Work Anywhere Solution, applications and data stored in the Cloud mean that work remains uninterrupted no matter what device is used or where it is conducted from. An added layer of security also gives management peace of mind as only authorized users can access files and applications that they need for a productive workday.
Globe Work Anywhere Solution ties in with Globe’s sustainability efforts, which are aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG)—in particular the ninth, highlighting the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development. Globe is committed to upholding the UN Global Compact principles and contributes to 10 UN SDGs.
