Remote working, more commonly known as WFH (Work From Home) is definitely not a new concept anymore. Since the 1980s, we have observed a steady growth in the number of remote workers and entrepreneurs that decide to normalize WFH as their routine.
Supported by the rising tide of technology development, and boosted by the unexpected epidemic of COVID-19, this concept that we once took for granted is once again under the spotlight. Numerous Tech companies turned to the help of remote working, with some even permanently adopting WFH as a standard routine. And of course, there comes a demand for products and solutions to support the coming remote working age.

Then this raises a fresh concern: how to choose the right products to gear up for this remote working age? How to ensure both productivity and security to maximize the benefits while minimizing risks in this new millennium?
Potential risks in remote practices
It is a piece of cake to list the benefits of remote working. Don’t try to deny it, it’s not a secret that everyone’s happy being away from the traffic, the office, and maybe the colleagues.
However, being not onsite means you are away from your important business/personal data and services that are crucial to completing your work. You need to get them remotely, and these connections or accesses could be “catastrophic” if done in the wrong way or with the wrong tool.
The most fearful potential risk in remote practice is data breaches. And unfortunately, we are forced to familiarize ourselves with it in the past few years, as there have been numerous major and minor security breach incidents that include but are not limited to sensitive information, personally identifiable information, intellectual properties, and trade secrets.
Therefore, we need to take information security even more seriously when it comes to remote work/lifestyle.
