Remote Working

Supporting your customers while they work from home.

Working from home has become the new 'norm'

The need to support remote working continues to be a priority for the majority of businesses in the UK - whether supporting a fully or part remote-based workforce. 

We understand the importance of being able to support your customers in these challenging times, and to be able to continue to provide first-class, expert advice, and have therefore created this 'Remote Working' hub to bring together relevant information and content sources. 

Microsoft Teams

Designed to be a ‘virtual office’, Teams focuses on enabling remote collaboration, offering features such as seamless video calling, easy chat, file sharing and collaborative working channels. Microsoft has also enhanced the security and privacy functionality within Teams, securing the software against the growing number of coronavirus-related cyber threats.

Remote Working with Windows Virtual Desktop 

Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) is a cost-effective, secure remote desktop and application cloud virtualization service that runs in Microsoft Azure. It’s an easy-to-set-up, bolt-on solution to existing IT infrastructure, which lets you create virtual desktops for your customers, with governance and security roles at your control - just as if you were providing their own individual computer. 

WVD delivers the best Windows 10 desktop experience and enables remote working employees to access data and applications on their company's on-premises servers. The solution means that companies can keep data in-house but also provide secure remote access to those who need it, using any device with a web browser.

 

Business Voice

Being able to communicate easily and still have access to files and data is vital for successful remote working. Microsoft Teams has functionality that allows employees to work together through chat, online meetings, document collaboration, file sharing and phone calls — from any device. 

From helping with deployment to user-training, we can help your business continue as normal, and help you enable your customers to do so. We know Teams and Business Voice works, because that's what the Vuzion team is using right now!

And you can experience Microsoft Teams for free, with a 6-month trial.

The Importance of Security

For most businesses, the transition to a remote working model was sudden, as a result of restrictions imposed during the first COVID-19 lockdown in the spring of 2020 - and which has left many with compromised security.

The year has also seen a growth in the number and sophistication of cyberattacks.

How can you help your customers stay secure?

Helping customers build a security strategy should include:

  • Layered security services and technology solutions.
  • Employee training (focused on human-error attacks like phishing and social engineering).
  • Security process and protocols embedded into the company culture..
 
Vuzion can help, with advice on solutions, training options and collateral - just get in touch.


DocuSign
