The scale of the current COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyday life across the globe. The long-term implications will affect not only how we view, react and manage future contagions, but also how we function in our familial, social and work environments. Faced with remote work mandates, enterprises must make prompt decisions to safeguard critical business functions and operations while meeting business continuity requirements. For many organizations, enabling workers to be productive from remote locations has not been a priority, especially if they believed that physical presence was important.
However, working from home (WFH) is not the exception anymore. With increased work from home and BYOD initiatives, workload is moving to the Cloud. The existing virtual private network (VPN) solution is becoming outdated as company services are no longer just located in the office or data center, but are a combination of on-premise and Cloud-based services.

The perfect fit for the insurance sector
Wipro VirtuaDesk™ Business Continuity solution is a powerful tool for insurance companies. Insurance companies have unique operating structures with multiple internal and external users who use a large number of enterprises-owned and BYOD devices. These users access business applications for on-premise and Cloud applications. (Figure 1) maps remote working needs of these user groups. Wipro VirtuaDesk™ effectively meets business continuity requirements in the post COVID-19 environment.
