SANTA BARBARA, CA June 18, 2007
Online Services Make Telework Fast, Easy and Secure
Tucson commuters affected by Interstate 10 closures can swap their car keys for their home PC keyboard with free use of Citrix® GoToMyPC® for remote access to their office computer, and Citrix® GoToMeeting® for online meetings. Ideal for telework, both services make it easy to view your office PC just as if you were sitting at your desk, with full access to documents, programs, audio files and even remote printing.
Andy Taylor, KOLD-TV 13’s “Tech Tuesday” correspondent in Tucson and host of TechtalkRadio on KNST-AM 790, notes that technology makes teleworking a hassle-free alternative to being on the road. “In an effort to decrease traffic congestion, particularly during peak commuting hours, the Arizona Department of Transportation is encouraging telework options. GoToMyPC and GoToMeeting are excellent resources for connecting to your PC from any location. The ease of setup, plus security features like 128-bit point-to-point encryption, make these services beneficial for anyone interested in telecommuting.”
