Federal agencies have moved rapidly to support "maximum telework" in recent months, and are now planning for expanded telework capabilities even after the need for social distancing eases.
COVID-19 has changed how agencies run their business and IT operations, dramatically expanding the demand for teleworking and remote access to data and systems. This demand has created significant challenges for IT operations because issues must be resolved and supported quickly, but without sacrificing security.
Over the last decade, federal agencies have embarked on numerous transformative IT changes. One of which is migrating traditional databases to the cloud to optimize efficiency and deliver superior mission-critical performance and core-to-edge security. But how can agencies ensure a seamless transition without sacrificing their existing investments and applications?
In times of crisis, malware and ransomware attacks go up. With the COVID-19 crisis testing hospitals and governments at every level, bad actors are using the opportunity to find vulnerabilities and hold vital systems for ransom.

Learn how next generation back up recovery and data protection can help protect vital government systems and still permit appropriate access from employees and contractors working remotely.
Due to recent current events, now more than ever, federal agencies’ IT teams are tasked with quickly scaling remote work models to maintain business continuity and employee productivity. However, many remote workers are facing unique issues such as poor network stability, over saturated local connections, and unpredictable application performance. With the coronavirus crisis likely changing how we work forever, Affigent and Riverbed will share key tips for optimizing at-home network connections and delivering reliable performance of business-critical apps.
