The Office Has Left the Building: An Interview with Scott Whittle from IP Technology Labs

As the world rapidly changes during the COVID-19 crisis, companies are using this time to adapt and make changes in many different ways. Some companies have experienced a sudden surge in sales and service requests, such as technology companies that offer solutions for adapting to new work environments. Right now, there are thousands of people working remotely in their home offices, or makeshift home offices, and need the technology required to allow them to remain connected and productive.

In this segment, I had the pleasure of speaking with Scott Whittle, CEO of IP Technology Labs (IPTL) to discuss what his company is experiencing in the current COVID-19 environment. IPTL is a USA based network technology company that designs and manufactures appliances for connecting and securing remote devices and networks over any Internet access. Supporting pop-up office networking, IPTL offers the easiest way to connect and secure remote users, applications, and business devices while overcoming the low-reliability, high cost, and complexity involved in remote networking. IPTL’s patented technologies deliver a combination of scalability, reliability, and security, which is unmatched by any of the big-box competitors, carriers, or other available market technologies.

Take a break from your day at home and listen in on how IPTL is responding to the demands of the market. We discuss challenges that IPTL is seeing in other companies that are in the work-from-home environment and the strain on companies’ internal IT departments, security risks, and more.
