Remote working, once reserved for a select few, has now been the norm for much of the last year. Some people are loving it, some people are not, but one thing has become clear, for many it is here to stay. So, we want to make sure that at Carden IT Services, we are doing everything we can to make the remote work environment as seamless and efficient as possible for our clients.
We offer enterprise-grade alternatives to some of the most common tools currently being used by many businesses. For instance, Microsoft Teams and SharePoint make it easier to stay in contact and collaborate on documents even if all your staff are in different locations. These applications also boast advanced features and improved cybersecurity over their non-business equivalents.
Security is a big concern for many organisations transitioning to working remotely. Controlling who has permission to access data and keeping a log of who has done so can become increasingly difficult when your team aren’t all in the same location. One solution would be Microsoft Azure’s Information Protection. This allows you to classify your data by sensitivity and control access to it accordingly as well as keeping a detailed log of exactly which users accessed the data and when.
Mobile Device Management and Mobile Application Management play a key role in keeping your network secure and remotely removing sensitive data when more and more employees are using their own devices. Microsoft Intune allows you to manage the permissions and access for multiple devices across your organisation, including employees’ own devices – this makes Microsoft Intune the perfect security tool for “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) companies.
We will be addressing all these solutions and more with our clients in their next quarterly business review.
