Over the past several years, business environments have become increasingly dynamic and have created the demand for unprecedented levels of workforce mobility. Rather than physically residing in the office:
• Many employees need and expect to work in remote office locations, or even at home
• Sales people and others who travel need to access their email and essential applications from anywhere in the world − and from an increasing variety of wired and wireless devices
• Those working outside of business hours need to access files and critical data at any time
• Within the office, employees need to remain connected to network resources and the Internet, while they meet in conference rooms, lobbies and labs
These demands for business mobility require networks and data to be securely accessible anytime and anywhere − throughout the office, as well as from remote locations.
