No, the epidemic did not create a remote work incident. With Gallup reporting in 2012 the US workforce has been operating remotely for almost a decade, with 39 percent of American employees working from home in some capacity.
While it is true that during the epidemic there was a rapid jump in the number of people working remotely, most offices opted to move entirely to the remote workforce. And, several major companies have announced that their employees will be remote in 2021, with some companies exploring sustainable work-at-home environments. With such a significant long-term change in effect, workplaces have to find solutions for connecting, managing and protecting all of their company-owned equipment.
For companies dependent on Apple devices, they need appropriate Apple Enterprise Management.
What is Apple Enterprise Management?
Companies that give Apple devices to their employees need a way to ensure that those devices are secure, connected, up-to-date and accounted for and provide workers with correct access based on identity. This is where Apple Enterprise Management comes in. Companies can use Apple Enterprise Management to unify their fleet of technical equipment through any central device where any device or user is located.
With Apple Enterprise Management you can:
- Deploy shrink-wrapped, pre-configured Apple hardware to remote employees, keeping their machines up to date.
- Install employee machines with a single username and password to securely access all devices and applications.
- Manage Apple devices, applications and inventories remotely and automatically.
- Protect your entire fleet in real-time with top-of-class security.
When you have dozens, hundreds or thousands of machines in employee hands, there is a huge amount of confidential and proprietary data of your company in the world. With Apple Enterprise Management, you can protect your company and client data while making life easier on your employees, by giving them streamlined access to the tools needed to do their work well.
