How can we make sure that our users have the right tools to enable collaboration?

Collaboration comes in many forms and mediums. Your users need to communicate using a range of collaboration tools including voice, video, instant messaging, group chat, whiteboarding and document collaboration. They’ll need to interact with colleagues, suppliers and customers, in person and remotely.

Too little collaboration and your teams will not be able to function efficiently, affecting productivity and outcomes. Too much collaboration and they will be overloaded with tools that cause a lack of consistency.

Understand your current environment.

The first step towards improving collaboration is to profile your existing collaboration solutions and your workforce demographic. By understanding how you, your teams and your organisation currently work, both internally and externally, it is easier to identify the right solutions for you to drive real business value.

How do we ensure our workforce are securely connected to the applications and resources they need, from anywhere?

Increasingly, businesses need to be flexible regarding how and where their users work. Rather than restricting the workforce to an office location, organisations can benefit in multiple ways when users can work from home, on a customer’s site or in public spaces.

This flexibility brings with it challenges. Users require a connection with sufficient performance to complete the tasks at hand, while that connection must be adequately secured to protect valuable data. Here's how you get started.

Mapping out your environment.

Platforms must be put in place that are easy and intuitive for your users to use, yet able to provide the levels of control and compliance that you need as an organisation. To do this, it is important to establish where your workloads are, and the bandwidth or latency requirements. It’s also helpful to identify where the users are connecting from in order to chart the course you need to take.

Now our data is in the cloud, do we need to worry about backup and disaster recovery?

Most definitely, yes. It is a common misconception, but the vendors of SaaS platforms do not provide a backup service for your data. They may protect it in the event of a failure in their own environments, but they will not provide you with a backup and recovery service in the event of your data loss. How should you start though?

Mitigate against data disasters

Without a data backup service in place, you are not protected in the event of data loss due to human or natural disasters. This includes user error, malicious deletion, software issues or data breaches by hackers. All of these risks can, and should, be mitigated against by implementing the same measures you would put in place if the data was held within your own data centres.

With our workforce spread out and no fixed office, how do we verify that devices are managed correctly?

The combination of great technology and great people will drive your business forward. However, closely monitoring this technology and how it is being used is essential to ensuring your business remains compliant and in control.

What do you need to do?

Device Ownership

Acknowledge the use of personal smartphones, laptops and tablets alongside company issued devices and factor this into your planning to ensure you have complete control of the devices you own, and the right level of control over the devices you do not.

Maintaining control and visibility of enterprise data and avoiding security risks must be balanced with giving your workforce everything they need to perform effectively, both now and in the future.

How do we keep our users protected and our data secure?

Unfortunately, others see the same value in your data as you do. Disruption through malicious attacks, loss of reputation when a confidential email ends up in the wrong hands, or loss of data due to human error are all too commonplace. This doesn’t have to be the case.

Security at every level

Understanding your risk profile is essential to developing a more effective data security policy. We recommend you start by looking at what policies you currently have in place, then identifying what and where your data is, and assessing whether your endpoints are suitably protected.
