Switch in a snap

The challenge

Just like companies up and down the land, when the pandemic hit, we had to move fast. Our challenge was to get 400 power users working from home within two days, while maintaining network access security and business continuity. We wanted to keep desktop applications and user experience as close to normal as possible and make sure all team members could access the resources they need to do their work well.

How we did it

We used our existing RDS infrastructure and quickly added more servers to meet the increased demand of home working. Security was a big concern, so we used Duo Security to make sure all users were working on a secure connection. Duo Security is a multi-factor authentication technology that requires a second method of authorisation to log in, not just a password.

The results

We delivered a home working environment that’s robust enough to keep our business and data secure, and straightforward enough to ensure no-hassle business continuity for our team and clients. We experienced very little business disruption as a result of our fast, seamless switchover.

If you want to join us in the ‘new normal’ of remote working, please get in touch. We’d love to talk about how we could help you make the move.
