Amid the current Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), a lot of employers and contractors worldwide are being advised to work from home. Users, servers, apps, and Smart Internet of Things (IoT) devices can be located everywhere, and this is a transformation for everybody.
A remote-based lifestyle can certainly offer advantages for both businesses and employees, but it has its own set of challenges, especially when it comes to IT. These are our top challenges of working remotely:
Vanix has achieved the Cisco® Cloud and Managed Services Advanced Certification (CMSP Certification). This certification recognises the company as having the capabilities to sell and deliver cloud and managed services that help accelerate time to market and time to revenue.
Current VPN architectures fall short of meeting application performance expectations of remote users, and the use of shadow IT by remote users to work around VPN issues poses a security risk for IT departments. Other limitations and issues for employees and remote users include slow VPM access and application performance, and frequent disconnection and confusion while on the go and travelling. As a result, IT departments are lumbered with a high number of complaints, difficulties ensuring security and compliance, lack of network visibility and high costs and complexity.
A Smart Campus starts with ubiquitous, reliable wired and wireless connectivity, indoors and out. It includes management solutions, network intelligence and location-based services to create a unified system that brings intelligence and decision-making closer to users and devices, and gives administrators the technology to make the campus safer and more efficient.
New user demands and technology advances are increasingly putting pressure on campus networks requiring them to scale to support more devices and deliver more bandwidth.
The rapid growth in wireless traffic, accelerated by the adoption of 802.11ac and 802.11ax Wi-Fi, is propelling the migration from 1GbE to Multi-gigabit at the network edge and, driving the need for faster aggregation and core solutions.

In a fast-evolving market like IT, it is always tempting to focus on The Hype and The Sizzle. And Vanix has plenty to offer on this front. Exciting, disruptive technology in SD-WAN, IoT, cyber protection, machine learning…the list goes on.
But sometimes big changes in a market, prompted by innovation or plain old economics, can mean that well-established tech can rise to the top of ‘most talked about’ lists.
As companies and organisations reassess the need for adequate protection against cyber threats, Ampito Group Sales Director, Russell Bristow, shares the six key things IT teams must consider.
1. Education, education, education
No matter how sophisticated your security defences, user behaviour is always a key vulnerability, and one that is often overlooked. Over 90% of malware is delivered by email and, using services such as PhishMe, Ampito can help educate your workforce to be more cyber-smart.
A lot can happen in seven hours. You can fly from London to New York, binge-watch half a season of Suits, drive from LA to San Francisco (California traffic allowing!) or even simply get a good night’s sleep. If all that can happen in seven hours, imagine what can happen in seven days, seven weeks or seven months.
Especially in your network.
