Enterprise IT organizations may be preparing more of their workforces to work from home or telework as the coronavirus spreads in the US and more people look at potential quarantines or self isolation. Indeed, several technology conferences have been cancelled or postponed or moved to digital only, including Google I/O, Adobe Summit, Game Developers Conference (GDC), HIMSS, Data Center World, and SXSW. Companies, including Microsoft, Amazon, and Twitter, have told employees to work from home. Many companies have instituted a non-essential travel ban.

Not all workers are able to work from home, of course. Restaurant workers, retail workers, Uber and Lyft drivers, and plenty of others must be present at a physical location to do their jobs. But chances are, if you work at a desk in front of a computer, you are a candidate to work from home.

If you are about to take that plunge, you will want to put together a collection of technologies to help ease the transition to working from home, ensure that you are working securely, and help you be as productive as you can be while you are away from the office, for however long it takes.

We assembled this collection of tools, technologies, and tips to help you get started. Here’s our list.
