We hope you are all managing to stay safe and well, and that you and your staff are settling in to the “working from home” way of life for those of you who are doing so.

As promised last week, we have been working on ways to improve that Working from Home (WFH) experience. The priority over the last few weeks has been to get people up and running as quickly as possible, but now we are turning our attention to making that even better for you.

The first thing we want to mention is our new WFH security option. We have set you all up with various combinations of secure VPNs, encrypted connections, strong passwords etc, but there are still ways we can improve the security to further protect your office systems.

We have recently introduced our low cost Home Worker Protect plan. This is in no way intended to replace the current support package which you have on your normal key devices. The main difference is that it does not include support on the device itself or the applications on it, rather, it focuses on the security of that device, by upgrading your existing antivirus software to our professional, managed product, and also providing full Patch Management for all your software. 

As you will see from the link above, there are three levels to this cover. We will be reaching out to you all to discuss which may be the most appropriate for you, but as a minimum we urge you to adopt at least the basic option.  In line with our policy of not profiteering out of the current crisis, we have linked up with one of our key vendors to provide this service at a greatly reduced price to support you and your business during these difficult times.

We know that the last thing you need right now is more costs, but security is essential, so these reduced prices will continue through until at least June 30th. We have obviously chosen this date to tie-in with the various government offers, but rest assured that we will continue to review and if needed will certainly look to keep discounts in place thereafter.  Right now that would be just £3.50 a month for the Core product, £6 for the Advanced, and £8 for the Premium package.

If you would like more info or to get this protection in place, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
