Enterprise Networking: Remote Network Access: 10 Signs Its Time to Deploy Updated Control Software
Sign No. 1: The Enterprise Uses Multiple Remote Access Solutions
Having more than one remote access solution in use across data center sites and client systems is not uncommon, but can be redundant and counterproductive. The practice creates confusion, in that support personnel may not know which tool is best suited to solve a particular issue, lengthening the time taken to resolve the problem. Organizations should consolidate their remote access solutions so there's one technology used to securely manage all remote resources, and to take advantage of economies of scale.

While enterprises deploy various solutions to improve efficiencies in numerous parts of the data center, they often overlook an important one that can bring significant benefits: remote network access.
