Increasingly, employees are telecommuting to work from their homes. In 2004, nearly 17 percent of US employees already worked from home at least once per week, according to the Employment Policy Foundation. No doubt that number will continue to rise in 2005 as will the importance of the remote computing products that enable employees to work from home. Those products include remote control software and VPN solutions.
