Remote access is no longer a company perk it’s a necessity. Remote access means different things to different people. It can refer to telecommuters accessing their company’s server; branch offices that need interaction with systems at company’s main office; or enable mobile employees to upload or download data from a hotel, car, or even a customer’s office.
Remote technology applications boost collaboration. Employees anywhere can access and work with files in real time—no emails back and forth with updated files attached. Better collaboration improves productivity and creativity.
Meetings go digital, enabling effective participation and communication with colleagues, partners, and customers – anytime, anywhere, on virtually any device, eliminating travel and the need for on site interaction.
What Can Remote Technology do for Business?
Access systems anywhere, anytime. With mobility being vital in today’s world, businesses need easy access to their files, calendars, and client database no matter where they are. Remote access applications are a great solution for today’s mobility requirements. Some of the best features:
- File transfers: Easily transfer a file between computers without emailing files to yourself.
- Remote printing: Send documents to the printers connected to your remote or local PC.
Remote technology can provide more time on the job. No more snow days or other challenges associated with absenteeism. Access and productivity are no longer issues with remote access technology. Users can log into their office desktop from home, inclement weather or a personal matter need not impact the business’s ability to continue with day-to-day operations. Remote productivity allows remote workers to perform tasks without interrupting end-users.
How Can a Business Get Remote Access?
When choosing the remote technology for a business, there are many avenues:
Remote Technology programs such as LogMeIn, grant employees access to the programs and data on their company PCs from outside locations. This allows them to work from their chosen device while leaving the actual data back in the office.
Terminal Services, or Remote Desktop Services, where multiple users connect to a single server. Applications are installed on this terminal server rather than on individual desktops.
Cloud-based, using remote servers on the internet to manage, store, and process data instead of using a personal computer.
Many methods of remote access leave your confidential data at risk. MyWorkDrive offers a solution to give you all of the benefits of the cloud and remote access, but with reduced risks.

Cloud File Sharing Services
A review of recent posts on file sharing and cloud solutions reveals an ongoing demand for an easy file web access and map drive solution for existing Windows File Servers that’s not currently available in typical file sharing services. Intivix – our MSP in San Francisco – looked for products to fill this demand and came up short. All the products assumed clients are looking to sync all their data to the cloud or users’ desktops–something unfeasible when file server storage for even the smallest clients exceeds 1 terabyte. Intivix therefore ended up designing their own product–MyWorkDrive.com–and setup a new company around it. Intivix now uses it at numerous clients and for their own secure file remote access solution.
Most Appreciated Features of MyWorkDrive by Businesses
- 100% native Windows product: Easy to patch and ties into active directory (with nothing to configure) and inherits existing NTFS permissions, users and groups.
- File access solution without VPN: End-users utilize the file web access browser client or WebDAV to map drives; there are no sync clients to maintain or troubleshoot. We leave synching to whatever service the client prefers for a subset of their files – Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc..
- Choice between Simple or Advanced File Viewer: Files can be viewed on iPads or for power users they can utilize WebDAV to connect to shares using 3rd party apps. (We recommend WebDAV Navigator for both iOS and Android powered phones.)
