The new offering affords teams of all sizes the level of IT security and support previously reserved for large office-based operations, servicing the needs of the nation’s work-from-home employees.
The government’s implementation of a second national lockdown, lasting until at least the 2nd December puts pressure on millions of employers to adapt to new ways of working as the country attempts to slow the spread of the pandemic whilst reducing the economic impact seen in the spring.
According to a 2020 survey by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), even before the Coronavirus pandemic, around 1.7 million people in the UK worked predominantly from home, with another 8.7 million saying they’d done so at some point.
Totality Services, a multi-award-winning provider of IT services for enterprise currently works with a client list including Tide Bank, NICCE, WhiteHat and Michaelis Boyd Associates. WFH IT Support offers a full IT support package to businesses with displaced workers working remotely or from home on a rolling monthly contract starting at £14.99 per machine, per month.
Luis Navarro, co-founder at WFH IT Support, said: “This new national lockdown that we’re entering into means that even more businesses will be moving to a remote working model. Working from home and remotely, however, does bring an array of challenges for businesses, one major one being security threats.
The cybersecurity threat landscape is constantly evolving every day. It’s impossible for security software and solution vendors to guarantee against cyber-attacks. However, through the use of best-of-breed software and solutions, and continued staff training on security threats, we can safely say that we’re in the best position to support your business and avoid breaches.
