Enable Uninterrupted Access to Business Resources
High availability infrastructure design between on-premises and cloud can keep IT operations running – but what if people have been displaced from their usual workplace, or have lost access to their usual devices or systems? A complete and effective business continuity program has to encompass not only the data center but the workforce as well. If people can’t do their jobs, businesses can’t function.
While business continuity has traditionally revolved around a designated alternate workplace or recovery unit, organizations increasingly use business mobility tools to enable people to work wherever it’s most convenient and effective. People who need to work at the disaster site itself, such as business continuity team members, emergency response workers, critical service workers, and others such as insurance adjusters, can be housed in any available structure or mobile unit, without the need for special infrastructure or complex connectivity.
With Epioz solutions, the same secure digital workspace technology lets people connect with apps and data in both routine operations and emergency situations, using any device, network, or cloud. This makes it simple for people to continue working normally, perform new tasks required by the event, or focus on the needs of their families and themselves, then resume work as circumstances allow.
Staying engaged with an expert IT service provider, even outside of emergency situations, yields important benefits, including:
- Efficiency and cost savings
- A seamless experience for people
- Security and compliance
- More practical, lower-risk execution
Ensuring Workforce Continuity with Citrix Technologies
With a secure digital workspace, Epioz solutions powered by Citrix helps organizations securely deliver all apps-Windows, web, SaaS, and mobile – as well as data and services from any device, over any network or cloud. Citrix and Epioz support workforce continuity through comprehensive technologies that simplify security operations and reduce risk in the following key areas:
- Contextual Access
Epioz allows users to access their secure digital workspace the usual way over any available connection. Users can connect from using any available device to company LAN or WAN, consumer broadband, satellite, public hotspot or mobile with full security, access control, and compliance monitoring and tracking.
- Application Security
Because apps and data are managed within a data center or cloud, data protection, compliance, access control, and user administration are centralized.
- Data Security
Content collaboration enables users, teams, and customers to access and securely share files from anywhere, on any device. Policy-based control, reporting, data encryption, remote wipe, information rights management (IRM support), and data loss prevention (DLP) integration help keep business content secure when disruptions occur.
- Maintaining Continuous Access
Organizations that revolve around traditional desktop PCs for primary access to data and resources are often at a disadvantage when it comes to responding to unexpected events. With remote PC access, Epioz customers can rapidly access individual machines inside their physical workplace. In an unexpected event, an MSI package can quickly be deployed to desktop PCs and give users secure access to those devices from anywhere.
- Automation and Recovery
Citrix solutions helps Epioz ensure that resources remain available with tools for managing comprehensive site-wide disaster recovery, including live migration to move workloads from one physical server to another, and automated high availability.
The essence of business continuity is to minimize the impact of disruptions on people and reliant technologies. Epioz can help your organization implement a more seamless and holistic approach, allowing people to work exactly the same way during an emergency as they would on any other day.
