The number of U.S. employees who work remotely is on the rise, largely due to advancements and improvements in unified communications (UC) systems. In fact, a 2016 Gallup survey found 43% of respondents worked from home at least once in the last year, and the U.S. Employee Workforce report cited a 115% increase since 2005 in the number of workers who worked from home at least half of the time. So, why the rise in popularity? It turns out that the ability to work remotely benefits not only employees, but the company, too. That’s why having a discussion with your partners about the implications of working remotely represents an investment in their business and in their human capital.

Thankfully, Cisco’s suite of customizable, simple security solutions fit seamlessly with the enterprise networking and collaboration solutions you’re already selling and is industry-leading for a reason: accelerated visibility, a reduction in attack surface, speedy incident response and a halt to breaches. It’s time to lead with security.
