Even before COVID-19 sent non-essential businesses to work remotely, remote work has increasingly become the new normal. According to Global Workplace Analytics, in the U.S., 4.7 million employees (3.4% of the workforce) work from home at least half the week. While according to Owl Labs, 30% of people report working remotely full-time and 18% work remotely one to three times per week. These numbers are bound to increase as many businesses will continue to allow their employees to work remotely post COVID-19. Although studies indicate that remote work has many benefits, it also has its challenges.
Two of the biggest challenges of working remotely is effective communication and collaboration within organizations. When users are working in a single office environment, people and data are easily accessible. When users are working in their own environments, several variables make secure, effective communication and collaboration a logistical nightmare. Whether its outdated technology and software, unsecured home networks, or limited access to company information, effective communication and collaboration is not only difficult, it increases security threats.
How can organizations move past these challenges? With Fognigma’s patented software solution, secure, effective communication and collaboration is not only solved, but it is made simple! Organizations can communicate and collaborate seamlessly and securely from anywhere, with anyone, and without leaving a trace that users were ever connected.

Fognigma’s solution is designed to allow users to access necessary files from anywhere without anyone else knowing where they are. Administrators can control which users in the company access which folders and files. Additionally, special links can be created to share files or folders with parties outside of your organization.
Fognigma’s sandboxed VDIs include all the standard VDI features and more. Fognigma’s VDIs are proven to be 50% faster and more responsive, come with secure local USB capabilities, have dynamic exit switching, nomadic profile ability, drag-and-drop file sharing within VDIs, DNS routing at the exit, proxies audio, multiple language support, and have access to other Fognigma components.
User-Specific Message and File Encryption
Fognigma’s communication solution simplifies and automates end-to-end encryption, so that content never exists in the clear outside of the user’s device. The manual steps normally associated with private key encryption is transparently handled, allowing users to maintain proper security practices without needing specialized knowledge or extensive training, and without interrupting their regular workflow. A user’s private keys are stored only on the user’s devices and are never shared within the network or the server, protecting your organization from internal and external threats. Encryption keys are specific to each user and each individual interaction; even other users on the same server will be unable to decrypt them. Only the intended recipient’s device will have access.
Fognigma was purposely designed to be owned and operated by the customer, giving organizations all the tools they need to securely and effectively communicate and collaborate wherever they are. With Fognigma, communication and collaboration is not only secure, its simple. Contact us to schedule a demo today.
