Employees need the flexibility to choose the most effective way to access business applications wherever they work and whatever device they work on.

Right tools, right results

2. Right tools, right results

People can do amazing things whether they’re in the office, on the road, or on the couch. Give them the power to create, edit, view, and work together in real time, then get ready to be amazed at the results. Give them tools to:

  • Stay in contact via messaging.
  • Store documents in a central location.
  • View, share, and search information and content.
  • Edit and collaborate like never before.
Invest in video  collaboration

3. Invest in video collaboration.

What do you do when people can’t meet in person, and email or a phone call won’t cut it? You use HD video conferencing, wherever you are, and tie in content sharing to make communication easier, build trust, and do away with errors, that’s what.

Choose wisely

4. Choose wisely.

You really have to get this right. Even small gaps are big deals. Trends like bring your own device (BYOD), video conferencing, and cloud-based apps may be monster-sized asks for your network that you cannot afford to miss. Be sure you can:

  • Handle business-quality video conferencing.
  • Provide private and public cloud access.
  • Deal with sophisticated productivity and collaboration apps.
  • Manage security across multiple locations and types of devices.
Secure your digital space

  • See more with global threat intelligence.
  • Stop threats before, during, and after an attack
  • Automate security across physical, virtual, and cloud to reduce complexity
