The UK government recently stated that businesses should prepare for over 50% of employees to be affected by COVID-19. As a result, Mobliciti is seeing many customers face the need to enable contingency plans should the worst happen. One such provision to minimise disruptions within the enterprise is remote working – giving employees the ability to work at home in the event of precautionary measures, quarantine or self-isolation. As the mobile working experts, Mobliciti can help your whole business get ready to work remotely should the government move to a ‘delay’ phase.
Here’s how we’ve been helping other customers ensure they are COVID-19 prepared:
Rapid Deployment of Windows Surface Laptops and Tablets
As more companies seek to enable remote working for all employees, Mobliciti is helping to meet that demand by quickly staging and distributing Windows devices. We can also provide devices on a short-term rental basis to ensure you are covered until the threat passes without being locked into a long-term contract.
Deploying & Securing The Remaining Stocks Of iPhones
Due to the virus, many of China’s factories are still closed, including one of Apple’s largest suppliers, meaning there is a shortage of devices. Mobliciti is able to access stocks which have been unaffected, not only can we offer these with alternative purchasing methods but also we can stage and deploy them ready for your users to unbox and use straight away.
Secure Tokens for Remote Access
Mobliciti is already seeing a surge in customers requesting large increases in the number of secure tokens to enable their users in affected parts of the world to continue working. These tokens give users access to corporate resources without the requirement of being within the workplace.
Enable Secure Access to Cloud Services with Multi-Factor Authentication
Remote working means that the level of risk around accessing cloud services can increase. As a result, ensuring that access to these services is only granted to the correct people is essential. Enabling Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) means that you can be secure in the knowledge that precious cloud resources are safe.
Safeguard Data with Mobile Threat Defence
Examples of suspicious behaviour are on the rise due to COVID-19, with the UN health agency warning that criminals are taking advantage of the spread of the virus.
As the virus reaches a peak, it is expected that cybercriminals will further manipulate news events surrounding COVID-19 for use in scams. These scams can find their way to mobile devices through a variety of media, from texts and emails to social media and WhatsApp. Ensuring that corporate devices have Mobile Threat Defence (MTD) means that your data is protected before it’s allowed to leave the building.
Secure & stable connectivity to on-premise applications
Your workers are no longer behind a desk, but is their remote working experience a reliable one? By deploying a rapidly scalable VPN which works across all devices and operating systems you can improve their experience and make your workers more productive.
Rapid Implementation Of Video Conferencing
To ensure that your team can still communicate, regardless of their location, a video conferencing solution is the best option. Many enterprises are increasing their licensing in preparation for working from home.
Choose a software which can support both internal and external communications plus one that includes features such as IM, document collaboration and file sharing to ensure your team are never out of touch.
