In these times of crisis, a simple, secure remote networking solution can keep your business running and your employees safe.

These are very difficult times. As the weight of the global health crisis bears down upon us, businesses are challenged with making decisions they never, in their wildest dreams, thought they’d have to make. While some decisions are more complicated than others, making sure employees stay healthy and safe is at the top of the list for every enterprise. The flipside of that is ensuring there is a business to come back to when this is all over.

Enterprises are being challenged with ensuring business continuity in an unprecedented time of uncertainty. To address this, business owners are being tasked to come up with creative flex-work strategies to keep their organizations running. Employees are juggling taking care of their children—who are now off from school—while also trying to manage their business workday from a makeshift home office. Unfortunately, for some areas of business, a traditional work-from-home solution is just not an option.

Anyone who works in Finance or Human Resources knows the importance of confidentiality when dealing with sensitive information. A secure remote connection is non-negotiable in these areas of the business. A direct connection to the network provides the security required to keep these groups operating. A simple plug-and-play remote access point that can easily and quickly be deployed in a home or branch office provides security for even the most classified information. 

To get the job done, a secure remote connection must provide:

• A remote softphone: Fully featured office phone on computer at home

• Remote collaboration: Cloud-based communication and collaboration platform with Instant messaging, audio, video, screen share, document sharing, and conferencing

• Secure connectivity: Automatic connection to the corporate network for non-cloud enterprise resources and databases; plug-and-play for remote workers

From an operations perspective, remote access connectivity lets you manage large numbers of incoming calls, handle emergency situations effectively, and quickly provide notifications to different groups in a secure environment.

Today’s pandemic is a wake-up call for enterprises and employees. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Remote Access Points (RAPs) provide field proven, easy-to-configure, easy-to-manage, secure access to corporate applications. The Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess® Stellar AP1201H provides the secure remote access that lets employees work comfortably from home to handle even the most confidential information with confidence. From healthcare to hospitality, and from branch offices to home offices, the OmniAccess Stellar AP1201H is a performance-rich access point that’s easy to get up and running and easy to use.
