Is your business aligned for the modern workplace?
What's getting in the way of a safe, efficient and productive remote working strategy?
Caught off guard by the pandemic, many businesses rushed to remote working by any means necessary and were forced to use existing legacy technology. These systems and the lack of proper controls have resulted in inefficiencies both in terms of cost and productivity. Most concerning is the cyber security risk that companies now face.
The world of work has changed considerably, with many businesses unsure as to what's next. As such, they are paralysed to make decisions to execute and invest in a modern working strategy, fueled by having a diverse workforce and using modern technology. Technology such as Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop and/or migrating core applications to the cloud and securing the endpoint in a parameter less eco-system.
Many companies are struggling at managerial and leadership levels to fully support and adopt remote working, unaware of the available technology that provides secure efficient access to company information and business systems to the employees. Failure to implement Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) for staff, results in a lack of transparency in utilisation.
How do we do it?
Gather information on your existing systems and work practices to identify how the business is supporting remote working. Understanding the unique needs of the business is key at this stage and the teams will produce a report outlining the available options for the business.
Once the options are clearly understood and a preferred solution identified, we begin to tailor the solution to the exact requirements of the business. This is then combined with a detailed deployment plan encompassing change management, training together with an agreed timeline for milestones and completion.
Our accredited and certified engineers deliver the agreed systems and provide training to users that require same.

Having the right foundations ensures the business remains agile and ready for change without having a mountain of sunken investments that can't be written off, chaining the organisation to outdated inefficient practices.

Protecting company data and systems from harm is an ever-evolving challenge. Security must be everywhere. Built-in security controls and systems protecting the endpoint, not just the parameter, are key to success. Regular mandated training for users is also a critical layer of defence.

Some of the most common questions asked, if there is something you would like to ask please call us on + 353 1 4760030
What is remote working?
Any user who accesses the business systems from a remote location.
Why are businesses less secure since the Pandemic and the rush to work from home?
Many businesses have not put the necessary controls in place to protect the employee or business data. Many are using personal laptops to directly connect to the office via a VPN which is not secure and poses significant risk to the entire organisation.
What is a Virtual Desktop?
A Virtual Desktop is a full computer experience running in a data center that a user connects to and uses just like it were a local computer.
Is a Virtual Desktop more secure?
Yes, a Virtual Desktop is generally more secure as it is centrally managed and protected. The company data also never leaves the environment in which the company has direct control. Any access to company systems is from a trusted endpoint.
Do I need to have Virtual Desktops to be secure?
No, there are other ways to ensure the protection and safety of both employees and the business that can be easily implemented.
Can my phone system also work remotely?
Yes, of course. Modern phone systems can integrate with Microsoft Teams so you can combine legacy communications with modern collaboration tools.
