Watch Now

California Gov. Newsom recently announced he aims to have roughly 75 percent of state workers continue working from home even after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. As remote work becomes more common across government, agencies must consider what’s needed to make their IT environments more reliable, scalable and secure.

Join Government Technology and experts from Comcast on May 4 at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET for a one-hour webinar that will explore the future of government IT networks and the three key components required to create a successful remote work environment.

We’ll also discuss:

- How to create a secure work-from-anywhere environment that’s just as good – if not better – than your office IT environment
- Why a next-generation network is critical to supporting the Work from Home directive
- Case study examples of organizations that are successfully adopting flexible network solutions that can support both remote work environments and shared workspaces
