The needs of home-based users is placing unique demands on many IT services that often still reside in the Data Center, yet remote employees maintain high expectations when it comes to the performance of their core business applications and SaaS applications that are accessed directly.
- The traffic volumes at the Data Center's Internet Gateways have changed and these connections need to be constantly monitored as traffic profiles change due to the demand of the increased number of home-based workers.
- Applications in the data center are critical to keep the business running. However, IT staff may also be working from home and unable to respond with traditional means. Visibility deep into the data center is essential to keeping these applications running at levels expected by the business.
- Productivity applications like Office365 and collaboration solutions like WebEx are critical to keeping the business running. When working from home, IT no longer has visibility into these applications, but users still rely on IT to provide support.

The increase in the number of users working from home has had a dramatic impact across the portion of the network that is your internet gateway.

NETSCOUT helps assure that you understand the amount and type of traffic coming on to your network.
With the move to remote offices, the devices and connections for access to SaaS applications like Office 365 and Webex are likely different. nGeniusPULSE provides insight into changes in employees end-user experience.
