In times of crisis, more and more companies are turning to home-based working. But what if the company simply doesn’t have any end devices for this purpose? Personal PCs, laptops, and tablets can become a security issue. In addition, many companies have strict compliance, security, and data protection requirements. A solution: The Collaboration 365 offering from the private cloud enables even the highest security standards with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
Discussing content, holding a meeting with the customer, or effective project management – many daily work tasks can only be carried out in cooperation. But when it is no longer possible to work in the office, even in small teams, fast, secure solutions are required: to continue to enable home office collaboration and team communication as an employer, many companies are currently using public cloud offerings such as Office 365. But for working with business-critical applications and data, as well as with strict security and compliance requirements, the private cloud is recommended.
A closed private cloud fulfills legal data protection requirements such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In addition, far-reaching security mechanisms can be established. Another big advantage: employees working from home can also access office solutions such as email, SharePoint, or Skype for Business with their own end or mobile devices, such as PCs, laptops, and tablets, even if these private devices have not been preconfigured by the company IT. Two-factor authentication also ensures that only authorized employees have access to the collaboration software. If required, individual device types can be remotely and selectively blocked.
