Optimized work: The Future of Remote Work
'Changes', 2020 in a word.
Covid19 has pushed companies to adapt to a new normal - remote work. Companies needed to implement new policies and regulations to keep their employees and data safe. However, we are seeing an increase in employee productivity 📈
Remote Work increases Employees Productivity
We are seeing how working from home has helped employees to maximize their workday. A Stanford study shows that remote work is 13% more productive than their counterparts who work from the office. By working from home, employees can focus on their work, create a healthy balance of family and work life, and so be more productive.
Additionally, employees are less likely to take sick leave or holidays when working remotely. According to a survey conducted by Owl Labs, companies that support remote work experience 25% lower employee turnover.
Now that employees can work anywhere, companies can monitor their activities and provide the right productivity tools to work efficiently and effectively.

Monitor Employee Activities to detect Insider Threats
By using workforce analytics tools, companies gain insights on employee activities so that they can identify threats by proactively recognizing signs of risk, like changes in an employee’s attitude and behavioral patterns.
Veriato’s Cerebral, an AI-powered security platform, immediately alerts you to who is exhibiting signs of risk (such as changes in an employee’s attitude and behavioral patterns), shows you related screen shots so that you can immediately determine the true nature of an incident.
This visibility empowers your IT security team to rapidly take action (with 100% confidence) all while gathering the evidence essential to taking legal action. It can also track a user’s email & web activity, location of devices and even Log in and log out timings.
Digital Risk Monitoring
The challenge with running a business in these times is managing the increase of data and protecting it against cyber-attacks. The trick to handling it like a pro is to anticipate and defend against potential threats rather than a mid crisis damage control.
