C-suite and technology leaders need to assume a more strategic role in organizational intelligence and planning. To do that, you need better visibility into technology, financial, and operational metrics, so you can make better decisions and keep your team members’ productivity high and keep your organization’s information secure working across various platforms in multiple locations.

Virtual Desktop

Significant improvements have been made to virtual desktop platforms during the past five years. In order to keep your productivity high, it’s important to have a system that is fast, secure, and easy-to-access. When is the last time you thought about upgrading your virtual access?

Here are some things to consider:

Hardware Costs in a Virtual World

As you consider your technology costs, it’s important to critically look at your current stance and analyze how best to utilize cloud solutions to help support your organizational goals and mitigate technology expenses. Cloud-based systems are far more secure, easy-to-access, and easier to manage from the technology team’s perspective across your organization. The right cloud-based solutions are scalable to your organization’s size and complexity making them cost-effective and efficient. Additionally, Cloud-based systems ensure your team always has access to the latest tools making working anywhere, anytime easier and more productive.

Cybersecurity Risks

As cybersecurity threats become more sophisticated, it’s not a matter of if but when your company will fall victim. Is your system fully secured against an attack? Do you have the visibility to know where your company is most vulnerable? Do you know what your first five steps should be after you know an attack has occurred? Does your current security insure you can avoid spending hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars in remediation when you get hit?

We worked with many clients throughout the last year who needed remediation assistance for cyber-attack incidents that could have been avoided if they had the right cyber tools in place. We often see companies pushing cybersecurity initiatives out to the next year:

  • Cybersecurity Scorecard for Small Business
  • Cybersecurity Risk Assessments (for medium and large businesses)
  • Multi-factor Authentication Platforms
  • User Awareness Training (for your team members as they are often prime targets)
  • Security tools and technology that integrates seamlessly with your existing systems

If you’d like to explore how to better control costs to meet your company’s needs and keep projects on budget, please contact me.  I am happy to answer your questions and offer meaningful recommendations.
