Working remotely is now the new ‘normal’. The majority of businesses able to do so have transitioned to remote working and organisations are getting to grips with this; establishing remote routines, revising business strategies and implementing appropriate solutions to enable their employees to work remotely efficiently.
With increased reliance on remote working solutions, coupled with reports of increased cyberattacks related to COVID-19, it’s crucial to make sure that the technologies you’ve chosen for your business are secure.
Microsoft’s communication and collaboration platform ‘Microsoft Teams’ has seen an unprecedented spike in usage since the COVID-19 pandemic first locked the UK down in March. The company reported that usage rose 200% in just 2 weeks, recording a mind-blowing 2.7 billion meeting minutes in one day on the 31st March.
Microsoft Teams, part of the Microsoft 365 suite, is designed to be a ‘virtual office’ and focuses on enabling remote collaboration, with features such as seamless video calling, easy chat, file sharing and collaborative working channels. By offering this variety of communication options, Microsoft Teams aims to increase remote productivity, focus and collaboration amongst its users which have been strong requirements during the COVID-19 lockdown. But during the current challenging climate, businesses need to know that their remote working solutions are secure.
