Remote work with Matrix Cloud Workspace

With the growing adoption of remote work, new technologies and tools are important to ensure the effectiveness of the workforce, as is the case with Cloud Workspace.

New network security technologies have improved according to the demand of consumers and employees, making the VDI (virtual desktop interface) and VPN (virtual private network) models obsolete. With cloud-based technologies, installation processes, support, monitoring and remote work management have become more effective, and the Cloud Workspace service is a reference in the subject.

Want to know more? Read the post until the end and learn about the new modalities of remote work in the market and how Cloud Workspace can help you with this type of service.

Goodbye to Traditional VPN

As we know, business is heading for an unprecedented evolution; In addition to the momentary situation of COVID, there is already talk of the "new normal" where our residences will become the new place of work.

Additionally, remote work tools can accelerate the integration of employees, helping in mergers, acquisitions, and mergers. Finally, the modalities of temporary work, made official in the new CLT, demand technologies to guarantee safe and efficient access for this new type of employee.

However, traditional VDI and VPN technologies cannot handle the demands of these new changes. One of the reasons is the need to install components on each employee's microcomputers, manage temporary access credentials, in addition to the security risks to the company's network, arising from the residential IT infrastructure, such as viruses and ransomware.   

A study by Markets and Markets showed that workspace-type work has grown exponentially. In 2014 it reached $ 4.7 billion and in 2019 it rose to $ 9.41 billion, having a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.6% over the entire forecast period.

In this way, using the cloud workspace is an evolution of VDI, where users can access business applications and corporate data from anywhere using the internet and data centers, in a practical and secure way.

Why invest in Zero Trust technology?

Network security is paramount to business. Therefore, considering the cybersecurity of companies and the constant flow of information sent to different endpoints, the Zero Trust model of security underscores the thought that no one is trusted by default, whether inside or outside the organizational network.

Thus, Zero Trust automates the prevention of possible cyber attacks, fraud and other pertinent actions, minimizing the risks arising from the residential IT infrastructure.

With the expansion of remote work, there has been an exponential increase in attacks that exploit open firewall ports, necessary in the VDI / VPN model, resulting in the constant need to protect all security holes.

Why does Matrix Cloud Workspace guarantee total security and practicality?

Matrix Cloud Workspace solutions allow your employees, partners and service providers to have access to your company's applications quickly, remotely and securely.

Thus, with the quick installation and authentication integrated to the company's authentication systems, the Cloud Workspace supports most ERPs and collaboration packages on the market, making the employee work as if they were physically in the company and in a safe way, following principles of Zero Trust technology.
