Full Lifecycle Cloud Security

Article | April 9, 2020

The cloud and rising to the challenge

Article | April 16, 2020

In a very short space of time, the coronavirus outbreak has completely transformed how organisations across all sectors operate. With lockdown restrictions rolling out across the globe, those organisations have moved quickly to instruct their staff to work from home in a bid to halt the spread of the Covid-19 infection.The nature of the IT industry will mean many of its businesses and employees will have remote working experience, but that isn’t the same across the board. According to March 2020 research from the Office of National Statistics (ONS), only 30% of UK employees ever worked from home during 2019. For many, the change has been sharp and abrupt, and brought with it significant challenges for both the workforce and the IT infrastructure required to support it.Due to the rapidly unfolding pace of the Covid-19 pandemic, CIOs have had little time to test the robustness of their business continuity strategy.

Making sure that IT infrastructures can cope with the surge in demand for access to on-premise and cloud platforms from remote locations is key in the coming months.

When it comes to growing your manufacturing business, speed is the name of the game. When technology capabilities increase, customer expectations tend to increase at an even faster rate.

Wherever your employees are working, they need speedy access to all the information that’s relevant to the decision at hand.
