Preparation is often the key to success.

Taking proactive steps to incorporate technology that supports organisational agility can help to mitigate disruption, now and in the future. 

In the wake of the Coronavirus, an increasing number of organizations are quickly moving to implement plans and technology solutions that will enable remote access and work from home options.

We held a webinar on Monday, March 16, for tips on how to navigate various technology solutions across collaboration, security and services that will help make your organisation more resilient.

Crisis Management





Security Considerations

Network & Security Considerations

Many of the most useful security technologies that accommodate remote workforces are easily scalable but require license upgrades. This includes remote access technologies (VPN, virtual desktops and network extension), multi-factor authentication software or next generation endpoint software or endpoint management software (MDM, EMM), which may need increased licenses to put new devices under management as organisations permit these devices to leave offices and operate at home.  

Cloud security can’t be overlooked. Largely remote workforces lead to increased dependency on security-as-a-service (SaaS) applications such as O365 and other business tools, and there are solutions that can help quickly and seamlessly improve visibility to these applications with zero disruption. 

Security Awareness Training is a basic but important step. Helping users who typically report to a brick and mortar office understand the risks associated with working remotely and enforcing training around phishing and scams is important. We work with partner organisations who offer online training that can be quickly spun up and rolled out to organizations looking to educate staff.




Collaboration

Collaboration

Effectively leveraging collaboration technologies is a crucial component to enabling effective telework scenarios. Multiple solutions are available to support this, including hardware and software communication endpoints that operate remotely, or rich-media meeting solutions that enable remote workers to remain connected to each other, regardless of physical location. Take the time to evaluate your environment to ensure that your deployments are prepared to enable remote workers and adequate to support increased scale.
 



Leasing-Financing

Leasing and Financing 

When unexpected costs present themselves, leasing and financing solutions can help. Worsening credit markets may mean that organizations have trouble accessing funds to support the technology they need to keep their businesses running. Payment programs can help offset unbudgeted costs associated with incurred expenses in support of expanded work from home programs. When unexpected costs present themselves, leasing and financing solutions can help.
 



Services

Services

Moving your workforce to remote facilities (or home) and ensuring complete operational continuity for your organisation may require leveraging third party support services. Managed and professional services are available for everything from service desk and security to network infrastructure. Augmenting your current operations with managed services, even on a temporary basis, can help you to mitigate disruptions.
