Remote working

Helping you and your employees maintain focus, security and productivity

Are you ready to work from home?

The need to work remotely is more vital than ever given the recent government Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice asking companies to switch to home working, so that employees can stay home and minimise the spread of the virus.

At Cobweb, we are lucky to have the technology to switch quickly to remote working but we understand that many of you might need assistance in setting up the right solutions so that you can continue to work safely, securely and productively.

Our priority is to help you successfully make this switch, not just technically but also with guidance for keeping you and your teams engaged and healthy.

We’ll be regularly sharing our learnings about employee mental health when working from home, alongside information about the solutions that can make this transition easier and successful.

As remote working becomes the norm, we share some of our top tips to help you stay focused, healthy, protected and productive

What to do if you're not in the cloud?

Get your Exchange Online

We know that many businesses use on-premises servers to host some or all of their IT which means that remote working is a lot harder to implement.

Given the circumstances, it might be time to consider a migration to the cloud and Microsoft 365 — it’s probably not as expensive, or as difficult as you’d think.

Plus, to help you minimise your IT costs, we’re giving away one month of Microsoft 365 Business Voice for free.

Unable to access your servers remotely?

With the rapid switch to home working, we understand that you may not be able to access all of you systems and applications remotely.

Switching your on-premise solutions to Azure removes the need for employees to have to go into the office, plus can lower your IT costs.

What about business security?

Remote working introduces new security challenges that must be considered. We recommend that you review your current security policy to ensure that your employees still remain safe and protected, regardless of where they’re based — to help, we’ve outlined three security focuses that should be included.

Protecting online identities is a necessity. Ensure that business software can recognise your employees as they access data and systems from home.

Protect employees

90% of attacks happen in an inbox. Can you and your employees recognise a phishing attack? Let email security software stop what your employees cannot.

Protect inboxes

If a device were to break, then vital data is at risk of being lost forever; ensuring that your business has an easy tool that backs up all business data is the last line of defence.
