This technology provides IT managers significant control over the digital ecosystem of at-home employees and ensures them a familiar work experience. Progent's virtual desktop consulting services include Windows Remote Desktop integration and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops VDI expertise.
  • Routers attach home computer networks to the Internet and typically support VPN tunnels, local wireless networks, and firewalls. Progent offers expert online consulting for setting up home routers from a range of manufacturers. See router configuration support from Cisco-certified consultants.
  • Home Wireless networks, typically shared by an entire household and visitors, are commonly used by at-home employees to access their router for work.

Progent can help you to resolve these issues by delivering services like Aironet integration consulting, Cisco-certified Meraki WiFi installation consulting, and Ubiquiti Unifi wireless access point setup assistance.
  • Internet connectivity solutions impact the speed and availability of connections between telecommuters and the company network.
