Adapting phone systems

Adapting phone systems

We can help you adapt quickly to new work patterns and processes by utilising our flexible portfolio of hosted voice services. Add services around your existing set up to help you easily re-route calls and continue serving your customers effectively from home.

Connectivity at home

4G business broadband

Relieve pressure on your home broadband or provide backup connectivity. 4G business broadband works independently from your home network removing bandwidth contention issues. By deploying a second connection you increase your levels of redundancy and protect your staff from downtime and non-performant connections. For added security and assurance you can integrate the service into our core MPLS network to maintain and control the integrity of the network data.

Business grade 4G SIM for home workers using their own devices

For those home workers who do not have access to or use corporate laptop solutions and are bound to tablets or mobile devices, we offer business grade 4G SIM only connectivity. De-couples your workforce from their home connectivity solution and integrates the connectivity directly to the user’s devices or even your own 4G router.

Remote Access Assessment

Remote Access Assessment

Key business systems and information are a target for attackers looking to intercept traffic, hijack remote working sessions, steal credentials and take advantage of the varying levels of security on the wide variety of devices being used for home access. We can help by testing the security of your remote access provision and simulate what attackers could do if it isn’t configured securely, allowing you to take the preventative actions.

Controlled Phishing Simulations

Controlled Phishing Simulations

With working patterns changed, cyber criminals prey on and exploit employees’ vulnerabilities with phishing emails to spread malware and steal sensitive information. Our Phishing Simulation provides your organisation visibility of how staff will respond to malicious phishing email in a controlled risk-free way. Designed to reflect the types of emails that hackers deploy mimicking the NHS and other trusted Government bodies.

Secure remote working training

Secure remote working training

A phishing test will provide you visibility on the increased threat of malware or data breach caused by employees responding to attackers’ phishing emails. This allows you to focus security awareness training where it is needed most. We can also advise on best practice employee security awareness training.
