Modern-day IT departments manage complex technology infrastructure with data stored across different siloes. Security is of paramount importance to IT departments and anything that presents a potential security risk becomes an immediate concern. Remote and hybrid working environments tend to fall into this risk category.
The rise of remote work presents a new set of pressing challenges for IT departments. It is advanced technology that has made the global transition to remote work possible. It is also only through capabilities that advanced technology make possible that IT departments can meet these new challenges. Moreover, the right technology solution can actually reduce operational costs.
The challenges that organisation-wide shifts to remote work present.
The new working world in which employees are off-site requires adaptation from the IT department to address different challenges.
• Vendor consolidation
Remote and hybrid office environments add a layer of complexity to managing external vendors, which is already a challenging task for organisations.
Technology that can facilitate efficient vendor data access and data management while simultaneously supporting third party risk control can help organisations to achieve optimal vendor consolidation.
IT departments often have to face difficulties to do with data transfer and siloes. With surveillance systems that automate relevant data transfer and are constantly communicating with each other, IT departments are able to build a much more detailed, precise, and timely picture of their organisation.
• Shadow IT and devise ownership
Personal employee mobile phone or tablet use for work-related tasks, including communication via unregulated chat apps like WhatsApp raises issues to do with data breaches and other security threats for IT departments.
