Two IT experts and coauthors of the book, When IT Fails: The Novel, calculated the global impact of IT failure as being $3 trillion annually. When poorly executed, IT measures can be costly, but with the correct solutions, IT can aid in saving businesses money. For businesses using secure remote access solutions, the financial benefits abound for all parties involved, not just for C-level executives.
Here’s how everyone saves with secure remote access:
In the U.S. alone, 10.8 million people commute more than an hour each way to work, according to the Census Bureau. In lieu of losing thousands of dollars a year on public transportation, gas, tolls and maybe even stress reducing measures because of their tiresome commutes, employees can work from home to save money and sanity. The ability to work from wherever, whenever, as provided by secure remote access solutions, also bolsters employee productivity, which benefits the business as a whole.
“The ability to work from home once a week saves me close to $7,000 annually,” says Victoria Levy, San Francisco tech industry employee. “I’m also more productive when I’m at home because I have less distractions than when I’m in the office.”

A recent Ponemon study revealed that the cost of a data breach for a company has increased by 23% in the last year. With this cost rising, companies need to implement secure VPN solutions to protect data and networks, preventing the climbing costs associated with breaches.
