The challenge: Employees working from home
and distributed networks
Due to the current health crisis, the employees of many companies are working from home and accessing the company’s network from several different locations. As a result, VPN connections and cloud services such as Office 365, SharePoint, and Zoom can quickly become strained.
In order for business at your company to go on more or less as usual, your IT environment and all your services must continue to be available and run as effectively as possible.
Many sysadmins are also now working from home and must therefore monitor the availability and performance of their networks remotely.
