Leostream Issues Recommendations to Better Support the Mobile Workforce

Remote desktop access platform provider Leostream highlighted strong market demand for secure enterprise mobility solutions, partially driven by rising remote and hybrid work trends, larger BYOD growth opportunities, increasing real-time data access requirements and more instances of remote-work environment cyberattacks. Supporting a mobile workforce, the company noted, has become a corporate priority for organizations of any size, necessitating solutions that are uniquely optimized for these environments.

Of note, Leostream is providing several key strategies to promote more collaborative and productive workforces in 2024. These considerations include:

  • Inventory devices – Maintaining a definitive list of the device types (Windows laptops, macOS devices, Android, etc.) to design a workforce mobility solution that provides access to every user at any time, by supporting the devices they are most likely to have with them at any moment.
  • Inventory corporate resources – Compiling a related list of corporate resources that the mobile workforce requires access to in order to perform their work.
  • Define cloud strategy – Optimizing the workforce mobility environment by leveraging the cloud. This includes taking a hybrid cloud approach to workforce mobility to bring benefits to both user performance and cost optimization. The public cloud provides global computing resources that can improve the end-user experience for a mobile workforce by lowering the latency of their connection, also providing redundancy and capacity, on-demand.
  • Consider application performance – Ensuring adequate application performance by considering the system on which the application runs, the technology used to connect the user to that application and the solution users leverage for remote access.
  • Encourage collaboration – Supporting collaboration for a mobile workforce by leveraging a display protocol that includes session shadowing capabilities and a remote access tool to streamline the process of connecting to collaborative sessions.
  • Find a tool that simplifies IT – Streamlining IT tasks related to managing a mobile workforce, by an IT staff who may be mobile: themselves. Look for a mobile workforce or remote access solution that can manage all of the client devices, remote resources and on-premise and cloud technology from a single pane-of-glass view.

“As we navigate the evolving landscape of workforce mobility, it’s crucial that organizations choose solutions that not only support, but also enhance the productivity and collaboration of their remote teams,” said Karen Gondoly, Leostream’s CEO. “We recognize that traditional, one-size-fits-all approaches are no longer sufficient. Our focus is on delivering flexible, secure and efficient solutions tailored to equip businesses with the right tools for their remote operations.”
