More businesses than ever recognise the need for staff to maintain access to their emails and documents while they are away from the office.
Employees who spend much of their time on the road find it invaluable to be able to work on their computers as though they are on the office network. Communicating with the office network can be achieved wherever internet access is available, be it home broadband, mobile networks or secure wireless.
To maintain high security while away from the office, Virtual Private Networks (VPN) are an essential part of business IT communications. A VPN is a secure, encrypted link (called a tunnel) that uses the internet to connect a remote computer or network to its head office. You will require a firewall at your office to allow the secure access and VPN software on each remote computer.
Vantage IT can organise the entire process of gaining remote access, which includes:
- Supplying, configuring and supporting the most suitable firewall and VPN for your business
- Arranging broadband connections
- Supplying mobile airtime
This is a service we provide to many customers, for single users and branch offices, both in the UK and overseas.
If you would like to access emails and documents on your mobile phone, Vantage IT can help with this too.
We can supply mobile phones, including BlackBerry®, arrange mobile airtime contracts and carry out the configuration to allow remote access.
Our WebSafe Secure Mobile Email service allows access to emails from your smartphone or tablet while maintaining the security of your network.
