With the introduction of the cloud, you can work from home, and even do it from anywhere in the world. However, there are still many restrictions surrounding the use of those types of computers outside of your private home. In many cases, you can not even try and download your files, as some companies have policies that forbid such things. However, it shouldn’t be any different with technology.
Technology has made it possible to work remotely, but that doesnt mean we should forget that we should also consider that our employers are in some cases, less flexible than we may think. In many cases, your employer wants to limit how many of the things you do, and still allow you to continue doing them. When this happens, it means they are going to be much stricter with your workplace and, for example, expect you to be more strict with yourself.
We take a closer look at what your employer would see as “devices”. We are going to look at what companies would ask when you ask how many devices you want to use when on the job. Thats right, we will also take the perspective point of view of the person who hires you and make you more focused on the job. What is a device? A device is any hardware you have bought, installed and used.
Companies are likely to ask how many devices you want to have on your home network. Old blog: Your company may be concerned that all your devices will give them a backdoor into your systems. You could be asked to install extra software that will give them access to your home network. This could be the case if you are running a business, or if the company uses some sort of VPN to their systems. This, as you can imagine, will be quite important.
Most companies will look at a device as a single unit, not a device, an add-on. If you are going to use an older version of the device, they may ask you to remove it, and it will most likely require that you pay for a replacement. The idea behind this is to prevent you from using the device too often as well as to limit your costs.
