Many companies have not dimensioned their infrastructure to handling the many current remote users. Our customers have gone from 10-20 per cent to 50-60 per cent now constantly being logged on. Cisco offers free licences for those that already have a Cisco firewall. Their remote VPN client is called ”Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client”.
For those that do not have a Cisco product or a firewall which cannot cope with the new workload, Palo Alto offers a VPN client solution from their cloud service that removes loads from the company’s firewall/VPN gateway.

In the security area, Cisco offers its Umbrella solution for now up to 90 days which may protect your work from home workplace, whether you are connected to the company’s network or not.
