Totality Services has launched WFH IT Support to service workers displaced by the new lock-down regulations. This includes IT security and support previously reserved for large office-based operations, servicing recently relocated, work-from-home employees.
The government’s implementation of a second national lockdown, lasting until at least the 2nd of 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.
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.
“Our team are extremely well equipped to deal with any IT support and issues. The new business will have the same team as Totality Services working on it, meaning that business working from home or remotely can feel secure and have full confidence that they’ll have the best service available.”
The new offering, just like Totality Services’ established product for offices, works in partnership with Mimecast, one of the world’s leading cybersecurity companies. Businesses signed up to WFH IT Support will also have access to 100% secure hard disk encryption, which works alongside DNS protection to fend off ‘man in the middle’ attacks.
