Remote Desktop Access: Androids and iPads for the Mobile WorkforceA globalized business environment is made up of multinational organizations with offices and clientelespread across nations, and a workforce operating out from these distant locations. The aggressivecompetitive environment has paved way for teams working together across multiple time zones. Remoteworking thus has become a vital factor in the drive for corporate success and employee productivity.Providing these workforce with an anytime anywhere access to their workstations will help them becomemobile and ensure higher productivity.Earlier, the most common method of providing mobility to the workforce was through a Virtual PrivateNetwork. Though VPN’s used an encrypted system for access to the corporate network, the security ofthe data and information in transit was questionable. However, as technological innovations camearound, remote desktop access technology has facilitated the remote teams an easy access to their filesand folders thus bringing about increased productivity and business continuity while ensuring applicationsecurity.VPN access however works out as costly and risky options. Further, with the increasing number ofhandheld devices used for corporate communication, the business houses are challenged to find ways forproviding full application availability from these remote devices, smartphones and tablets. These globalorganizations besides providing the workforce with mobility also needs to ensure that the vulnerabledata is secure and does not leave the corporate network. The anytime anywhere access of the desktopat the workplace means even when the primary access device is lost, the workers should be able toaccess resources from any alternate device which might be an iPad or iPhone. Such iPad remote accesswill increase employee productivity even in case of non-mobile workforce.Leading service providers have worked out iPad and Android remote desktop solutions to provideenterprises with cost-effective and efficient data access support systems for tablets and smartphones.These besides preventing data leakage facilitate complete application availability. The Android remotedesktop environment is innovatively installed in the corporate network with user credentials to ensuresecure usage. This also requires registrations of the physical or virtual desktops through database or end-users through the registration technology.The appliance based solution from the leading service providers being an enterprise controlled andoperated services does not open the corporate networks to any third party networks, thus ensuringprevention of data leakage for iPad and Android remote access. Further, users can download the freeapplication for the App stores to their corporate machines or personal devices while leveraging thecomplete applications existing on the desktop along with security infrastructure.
