With the dominance of remote and hybrid work, security teams must review their infrastructure to protect their organizations from security breaches, malware, and even employee behavior online. The ability to remotely monitor endpoints and machines while keeping teams productive, collaborating, and learning from anywhere is also a top priority.

Whether it’s finding the right tools to enable productive remote work or delivering IT support, organizations are looking to strike the right balance between remote access and security. The challenge is that virtual tasks and security demand more from IT teams. One survey shows that IT professionals now spend more time managing IT security threats and development security protocols, with 47% spending 5 to 8 hours a day on security, compared to 35% in 2019.

Powering remote access and driving IT efficiencies

Technology Advisors who help companies navigate the new state of IT in a remote world are in the best position to build customer loyalty and expand business growth. LogMeIn provides comprehensive, secure, and flexible products to help businesses securely and efficiently embrace remote work, learning, and customer engagement. John Bennett, SVP & GM of Identity and Access Management at LogMeIn, explains: “Staying ahead of ever-changing security threats is one of the biggest challenges IT teams face today. For an SMB who is tasked to do more with less, relying on solutions that embrace automation and enhance security are absolute necessities. “For both internal IT teams and MSPs, Central aims to provide IT professionals with the speed, flexibility, and insight needed to increase productivity, reduce IT costs, and mitigate risk.”
