Secure Business

Maintaining secure, continuous access to knowledge assets is critical for the ongoing prosperity of our businesses.  The majority of organisations are designed for a physically connected workforce, where decision support systems are dependent on people physically working with one another.

Today is different. Physical checks and balances have been replaced with hastily established remote alternatives. Securing remote access to your business knowledge assets and systems is a priority.

Secure Business is focused on addressing these challenges and building business system architecture that can adapt to the new paradigm.

Securing the new remote workforce

As organisations around the world face a pandemic, businesses are quickly focusing on how to overcome serious challenges. One of these is how to enable a significant portion, if not all, of our workforce to work securely from home. Keeping people safe is at the forefront of this process. Organisations also want to keep their business and sensitive data secure at the same time. We are here to help you get a better understanding of all the security risks and learn the steps to prevent unnecessary risk.

You need to move quickly toward something that will support your security and privacy requirements and provide the essential foundation for collaboration and productivity.

It’s all well and good to be remote working but having a lot of people suddenly working from outside the office network presents a new set of security issues - not the least of which is the fact that our people are no longer “within the security perimeter”.
