Setting Up Remote Office
Some things to consider for your home workspace while remote accessing are security and speed. Various options are available for remote work from home; remotely connect to your work PC from home or bring your workstation home and access needed files on the company server.
MCS can set up remote access through Managed IT Services platform or we can set up VPN connections to get back into the office servers. In most scenarios remote access to the office PC will be user friendly, while the VPN connection can run slow. Security is critical during remote access, Managed IT Services utilize Malwarebytes pro, Malwarebytes anti-exploit, and Malwarebytes anti-ransomware to protect users while working.
