MIAMI, FLORIDA - 20 MARCH, 2020 - Teramind Inc., a leading global provider of employee monitoring, data loss prevention (“DLP”) and workplace productivity solutions, announced today the availability of its latest suite of products with several new modules and features to help companies quickly adapt to managing remote, distributed teams.
As the world struggles with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are forced to implement work-from-home policies to protect their employees. However, while this type of arrangement has many benefits, remote teams bring some unique challenges for companies unfamiliar with the process, which can be exacerbated when scaled at a frantic pace. Communication, supervision, accountability, the difficulty of tracking projects, timeline and payroll, security - all can add up to diminish the smooth operation of a business.
With its revamped product lineup that currently services over 2,000 SMBs and enterprises alike, Teramind aims to quickly empower organizations to overcome these challenges by helping them maintain productivity, communication and security across a dispersed team.
Businesses Face Challenges to Scale Remote Teams to Work from Home at a Frantic Pace
While tech companies may have been better equipped to deal with remote employees before the recent pandemic, for traditional businesses, the unprecedented elements of this crisis required an overnight transition to remote work. This rapid conversion can quickly frustrate leadership. As a result, they need to introduce new contingency plans and boost their capabilities within a short period to support a dispersed workforce to not only stay afloat but to continue operating their business during a critical time.
“With these highly prioritized issues facing CEOs and department heads of enterprises to SMB owners alike, the challenge to ensure productivity and confidentiality when the employees are no longer under the direct supervision and security perimeter is yet another major barrier that must be quickly crossed. Fortunately, with the right strategy and tools, companies can effectively monitor remote workers to identify and address these productivity, security and compliance issues of a distributed team,” said Isaac Kohen, VP of R&D at Teramind. “We know there’s a clear need for a platform that ensures remote employee monitoring, productivity and data loss prevention. Teramind has the solutions and experience to deliver on those requirements,” said Kohen. “Whether you are a remote-veteran, a first-time homebound employee, or you are in a regulated industry who needs extra security beyond a VPN connection, Teramind has an option that will meet your remote team’s productivity, security and compliance requirements.”
