Some firms had solutions in place for those who worked remotely periodically, but most people came into the office to work. That is where their files were, their phones, their colleagues, and their office staff. Then in March of 2020, everything changed very quickly. Whether or not firms had remote work plans in place, they had to put something together immediately. At that point everyone’s main concern was ensuring people could continue working. Security may have been a concern, but the priority was to ensure the firm could stay in business ...

When the pandemic began in 2020, firms were faced with the reality that workers would no longer be heading into the office. Instead, they would stay right at home, the new “office." Firms that were prepared--that had remote technologies like secure access Virtual Desktops; Virtual Private Networks (VPNs); Cloud based applications; and stacks of consistent imaged Laptops/Tablets available -- have fared better than those who were lagging the technology curve.  Over the past year, the race has been on to deploy hardware, ...

Many firms have voluntarily opted to align and/or certify their information services with the information security framework of ISO 27001.

ILTA members continue to submit topic questions to the IDEA Database, and this is really helping drive some great discussion for content. As people look at mobility, VDI is one of those delivery methods at the top of the list. An idea was submitted revolving around VDI, and it was posed as a question “VDI – Does it still make sense?” This is a great question, and there’s a lot of room for discussion. Especially when it comes to the questions: Is it cost effective (CapEx or OpEx)? What about the server hardware infrastructure compared to simple physical desktops? Performance cannot be that great with VDI…can it? Is it ...
