Whether working in the office, from home, at customers’ premises or in a café – companies today want and need to enable their employees to work independently of time, location and network. This flexibility can increase employee satisfaction and productivity. This however, is only possible if technical requirements are met and secure and stable access to company data and applications is possible everywhere.
This is precisely what often presents companies with enormous challenges, as the connection quality outside their owned office network can only be influenced to a limited extent by their own IT department. In addition, the data should also be transported securely via the communication channels. This can quickly become a problem when employees are using and roaming between public networks.
With NetMotion, EBF has a new partner in its portfolio that has a solution for precisely this problem. NetMotion’s intelligent software solution ensures consistent connectivity for an overall improved user experience, while keeping data in transit secure.

Mobile working as a challenge for users and admins
With patchy 4G mobile coverage and a multitude of unsecured public networks, connecitivity remains a major challenge when it comes to using mobile devices like smartphones, tablets or laptops outside the four walls of the office.
For IT departments, these situations are problematic in several ways. Firstly, mobile access to sensitive corporate applications using unsecured networks offers an attractive point of attack for cyber criminals and hackers. This of course poses enormous risks for corporate IT security.
At the same time, poor network performance leads to an increased number of helpdesk calls from mobile users, whose problems are difficult to track due to a lack of data. Because connection problems are usually caused by external network operators, to whose data the internal IT has no access, a solution or improvement of the connection by the internal IT teams is made considerably more difficult.
