While working from home may not be everyone’s cup of tea, the fact is that there are already significant disruptions in the concept of the workplace. The silver lining that has become apparent is that companies are seeing exceptional levels of productivity and efficiency, and people are becoming much more comfortable in their home office operations.
Remote employees rely on bandwidth-intensive business applications, such as video conferencing, VoIP, cloud ERP systems and Office 365 to stay connected and this reliance on multiple mission-critical applications increases the need to prioritise network traffic on the home network. This can easily be achieved with group policies using Untangle’s SD-WAN solution. Instead of deploying best-effort VPN’s for your WFH employees, the Untangle SD-WAN can provide a business-like home networking experience with superb security levels, scheduled employee monitoring and application prioritisation – exactly like at the office!

Its big brother, the Z12 NG firewall, delivers next-generation firewall features for medium- to large-sized offices and is ideal for networks with 100 to 500 users.
