IT Managed Services for Remote Working


…in office? – is the quintessential question that we have today!
In these post Covid times, everyone is talking about life getting back to normal. But the new normal is nowhere near the normal before pandemic. Companies worldwide have come to realise the many benefits of the Work-from-Home model and are moving to a flexi-work week rather than going back to the Monday to Friday – 9 to 5 routine. Surveys in fact show that almost 75 to 80 percent workforce prefer it that way and would need to converge at an official place only a few times in a month. The recent Tube & Rail disruptions, or extreme weather, will only make this statistic go upward…

All this sounds very sweet, provided, the challenges are anticipated well in advance and companies prepare for the same ahead of time. While a lot of creative and out of the box ideas have been implemented by many, there are still a lot of businesses that have incurred major losses due to lack of required technical infrastructure.

Companies were quick on their feet in terms of ensuring the best possible connectivity and system they could provide. However, the rise in demand for systems and Covid related problems in supply chain have created shortages in availability of computing devices.

To overcome these challenges and to elevate the overall pressure for creating an efficient IT infrastructure, many companies have opted to outsource all their requirements to managed IT service providers. The following factors need to be considered for those who wish to make remote working a permanent part of their IT Portfolio:

  1. Upgrading systems

    Software and hardware upgrades, LAN/WAN set-ups, enhancing Wi-Fi and bandwidth, cloud computing set-up, etc.

  2. Data Safety & Security

    Endpoint protection,  authentication & identity management, access control, encryption, secure deletion, data masking, etc. need to be considered if not already implemented.

  3. Data theft & recovery

    Specific backup and sync regimes as well as Mobile Device Management solutions need to be put in place to ensure that data can be remotely erased in case of device theft and that data can be restored to new devices without loosing a single piece of information.
