Top Tips when Designing Your IT Infrastructure to Enable Hybrid-Working 

 

To enable hybrid-working effectively, businesses should design their IT infrastructure to be flexible, scalable, and secure. Here are some tips for designing an IT infrastructure to enable hybrid-working: 

  • Use cloud-based networking solutions that offer greater flexibility and scalability than traditional networking solutions. 
  • Provide employees with the devices they need to work effectively, whether they are on-site or remote, and ensure that these devices are configured to meet the company's security requirements. 
  • Provide employees with the applications they need to work effectively, whether they are on-site or remote, and ensure that these applications are secure and compliant with company policies. 
  • Ensure that employees have access to support when they need it, whether it's from in-house IT staff or from a third-party provider. 
  • Use a encrypted communications such as IPSec or SSL to secure remote connections to company networks and applications. 
  • Implement two-factor authentication to add an extra layer of security to logins. 
  • Use antivirus software to protect devices from malware and other security threats. 
  • Regularly update software and security policies to stay up to date with the latest security threats and best practices. 

 

Hybrid-working is here to stay, and businesses that embrace it will reap the benefits of increased productivity, reduced real estate costs, and improved employee satisfaction.
