Securing company data in a hybrid workforce environment
Why is it important to secure your companies data when working with a hybrid workforce?
An up-to-date and high-quality IT infrastructure is an asset that enables you to do business without falling prey to cyber threats and helps you achieve your goals. IT infrastructure is a critical component of your business – and its importance is often underestimated in SMEs.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused an unprecedented shift in the way people work. Although most companies initially relied on a fully remote work model, the vaccine rollout has led to popularising hybrid work environments. Which in turn, has raised the question: how can businesses secure their hybrid work environment and ensure both on-site and remote staff can avoid cyber threats?
This question is relevant because hybrid work environments have never existed at this scale, and most businesses were not structured to function in this manner. A hybrid work environment has elements of both the traditional on-site work model and the remote work model.
Cloud storage is technology that keeps, maintains and secures data. This service is accessible over a network, usually the internet, and allows companies to access their data remotely from anywhere. Despite this accessibility, data stored via the cloud is extremely safe and secure, as long as the correct permissions are in place.
A secure cloud backup solution is no longer a luxury – it’s a necessity. In today’s world, businesses gather, analyse and process large volumes of digital data on an everyday basis. From identifying typical customer behaviour to creating campaigns that target the right audience, business data plays a critical role in the day-to-day functioning of a company. Considering the critical need for data, businesses cannot afford to lose their data.
Since threats to business data have skyrocketed in this new remote working age, the need for the cloud to be a part of the backup solution has become extremely important for businesses of all sizes.
Cloud storage has a lot of benefits for business including, cost savings, disaster recovery, protection, and accessibility, to name a few. Cloud storage can reduce costs, enhance user experience and allow remote employees to work and collaborate. This simplifies logistics as a whole.
