Did you send the users to a home office? Are they accessing your equipment? How are you managing security?
The need to work remotely comes with problems related to ensuring security and user work comfort. Most users have their own notebooks and "carry" their work environment with them - but what about those with a desktop computer? Are you able to provide them with secure access to their applications and data even when they are not using the company's end devices. An excellent solution is to use Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop. With this Azure service you can very quickly create and make accessible a company desktop or just selected applications for remote work while maintaining the highest company security standards. Thanks to sophisticated tools, the implementation and administration of the environment is very fast, effective and places low demands on technology. We are happy to help you with the solution – we are at your disposal together with specialists from Microsoft. More about the service here.
Is the dark web taking an interest in you?
The security company WatchGuard has launched a new tool Dark Web Scanner for WG Cloud and AuthPoint, which verifies whether a company's sensitive or login data is found in databases of known leaked data that are offered on the dark web. By means of a simple search, based on domain and email addresses, you can easily see whether a company data leak has occurred, enabling you to start defending yourself against potential attacks in time.
M365 is constantly developing, modernising and expanding
For most customers, Microsoft 365 cloud services are a normal work tool and for users the use of applications such as Teams, SharePoint Online or OneDrive is a standard. Let's take a look at what is new in this area.
A new application List was launched for the creation of lists with an overview of events, problems, environments and other items. Of course, it comes with integration into Teams and supplementation of automatic processes over information using Power Platform. More about the List application here.
The Teams application is also undergoing significant development, as it's being used by an increasing number of people for remote work. Microsoft is making efforts to make cooperation via Teams more comfortable and effective. New functions such as dynamic views, virtual classrooms, video filters, live reactions and more are being introduced. Take a look at an overview of news stories in this link. Overview article about news regarding Teams here.
The Office 365 environment is growing and we are all storing increasingly more information in it. How do you search for information at your company? Do you use Microsoft Search? This part of the environment is underestimated and underutilised in many organisations. Contacts us so we can help you with the configuration. More about the Microsoft Search here.
New generation of HPE Modular Smart Array disk arrays
IT does not live by cloud alone. There still exist many IT requirements that need to be handled using on-premise technologies, so our overview of what's new must not fail to mention an important story from Hewlett Packard Enterprise. In September, the now sixth generation of the successful model series of disk arrays, the Modular Smart Array, was launched. Compared to the previous generation, the HPE MSA 2060/2062 disk array offers 45 % higher performance and an innovated secure data storage system. Thanks to this, it may become a reliable and powerful foundation for the storage of company data for a wide spectrum of companies and organisations.
