Community at Home Response
Secure Wi-Fi sustains remote work and learning during COVID-19.
Bring the Enterprise Home
Many people will continue to work or learn from home as the world grapples with the virus. In a recent Gartner CFO survey, nearly a quarter of respondents said they will move at least 20 percent of their on-site employees to permanent remote positions.
“Before the pandemic, an IT team may have been responsible for 8,000 users and a handful of buildings. Now, IT is supporting 8,000 remote offices,” says Sudheer Matta, VP of Product Management at Mist, a Juniper Networks company. “You cannot do that over consumer-quality Wi-Fi and Internet. IT needs to deliver an enterprise experience at home that is scalable to support the current and potentially new norm of working from home.”
Simplified operation for enterprise-grade networking is particularly important in a time of physical distancing. The AI-driven Mist Platform makes it easy to troubleshoot network problems and deliver a great user experience, whether someone is working from home, a parking lot, or a grassy field.
End Digital Isolation with At-Home Connectivity
Working or learning from home is no longer a privilege to be enjoyed by the few, but a global strategy to get the economy safely back on track. But to sustain remote work on a massive scale means that our homes are fully connected, and our kitchen tables and living room couches are no longer unprotected digital outposts.
Juniper’s new Enterprise at Home solution empowers organizations to extend their enterprise networks directly into their employees’ homes or other locations, delivering a better user experience while ensuring the same levels of security as in the office.
Enterprise-grade home Wi-Fi starts by simply plugging in a Mist AP into an employee or student’s home broadband, and the at-home network takes its configuration from the Mist Cloud. Add the Mist Edge solution, and the organization can fully extend the corporate network experience at home with strong security.
Finance, healthcare, and other organizations with the highest security requirements can add a Juniper SRX300 Series Services Gateway to the at-home setup. In fact, Juniper’s Enterprise at Home solution gave one financial services company the connectivity and confidence to allow hundreds of traders to trade from home within weeks of the initial lockdown.
Coronavirus is causing us to reimagine every aspect of how we live, work, and learn. Secure connectivity at home is a lifeline for everyone, including millions of people who have never worked from home before. Now is our opportunity for the broader community to come together to create a more equitable digital world, one secure connection at a time.
