With the recent rise in home working, many businesses are scrambling to supply their employees with laptops so that they can work effectively while away from the office. The first instinct can often be to buy the cheapest laptop available, especially if you are buying multiple machines at once.
More and more businesses are shifting to a full- or part-time home working. At the same time ransomware attacks, phishing attempts, data breaches, and dark web leaks are becoming more prevalent. That’s why it is more important than ever to have full visibility and control over what company data is being accessed, by who, and where from.
Effective and reliable IT equipment is vital to running a successful business. There is very little activity that happens in the modern business landscape which does not include using one piece of hardware or another, be it a laptop, a phone, a desktop, a server, or a webcam, etc.
