It’s all about the data:
Best practices for supporting and enabling the “new normal”
Let’s pretend it’s April 1st, 2020. If someone came into your office and said we were on the verge of a global pandemic that will shut the world down for months, would you have believed them?
It’s pretty wild to consider we’re living in a time that will have such a profound place in the history books. Although plenty of organizations have found a way to weather the initial storm and continue operations, many leaders still have questions on their mind – especially as they try to determine what the “new normal” that everyone keeps talking about will look like for their company:
- Am I getting my end users what they need to work in the most secure and efficient way?
- Now that our assets are being used differently, what am I missing from a security standpoint?
- How concerned should I be about employees using personal devices for work at home?
- How can I measure employee performance and productivity as a remote organization?
- How can we update our business continuity plan to be prepared for an event like this in the future?
If you’d like to discuss any of these topics in detail, please feel free to reach out to our experts.
The truth is, no one really knows what our “new normal” will look like aside from the fact that remote work won’t be going away any time soon. Whether you’re struggling to adapt or wanting to evolve your strategy for supporting employees and customers in the future, we can offer you one piece of advice:
It’s all about the data!
We believe that data runs every business. By working with you to take an intelligent look at where your data lives, how it’s used, and how it’s being delivered to your users, we can help you make more intelligent decisions about the technology your organization needs to run optimally – regardless of what the future holds.
At ATEC, our mantra is to help organizations use technology to not only grow in meaningful ways, but also to transform their business. We’ve been designing and implementing remote access solutions for over 15 years, and even use the same technology that we sell to our customers within our own organization. Together with powerful hyperconverged infrastructure from NetApp, both VMware Horizon and Workspace ONE provide the capabilities that every organization needs to provide secure remote access to the data and applications that are used every day:
NetApp HCI: NetApp® HCI is an enterprise-scale hyper converged infrastructure that delivers predictable performance on a highly flexible, efficient architecture that’s simple to deploy and manage. It provides the perfect foundation for secure remote access. You can learn more about it by reading this data sheet
VMware Horizon and Workspace ONE: VMware Horizon and Workspace ONE enable you to provide secure access to the apps and data your employees need, no matter where they work. You can learn how they power critical communications and keep security front and center in two blogs that VMware wrote – here and here.
If you need to build a better plan for remote access, want to improve the security of your data, or update your business continuity plan, we’re here to help. Reach out today to schedule a meeting or shoot an email to our own NetApp and VMware extraordinaire, Lisa Seguin (Lisa.Seguin@atecgroup.com) with any questions.
On Wednesday, November 20, 2019, ATEC Group hosted our first demonstration-focused, mini trade show at The Backroom at O’Toole’s Bar & Restaurant in Albany, New York.
Thank you to everyone who came out for ATEC Group‘s 2019 Technology Day at the Track! We hope you found value in attending our event and learned something new.
Across the nation, employee phishing is running rampant. Ransomware brought an airport offline and an NBA team’s online store was leaking credit card information just last week alone. On a list of last week’s notable breaches, the average company size is only 11-50 employees.
