    Enable & Protect: The way we work has changed and so should our approach to cyber security

    Oct 29, 2021

    By now it’s profoundly obvious that the way we work has been fundamentally altered. Gone are the days of conforming to the rigid “office” structure. Companies will now be able to adapt the way they work, focusing on how employees want to work and need to work without fixating on where they work.

    Employers expect the proportion of regular home workers in the UK to double from 18% to 37% following the pandemic. Plus, a recent survey by Gartner found that 82% of business leaders plan to make hybrid working a permanent feature of the workplace. However, for some industries, such as education or manufacturing, working from home is a near impossibility. The reliance on legacy systems, requirement of face-to-face teaching, and limited access to computer connectivity or internet speed, determines that there will never be a complete replacement for on-site access.

    The term ‘new-normal’ may be the phrase of choice for many but with data like that it becomes clear that there is now no such thing as ‘normal’, every organisation will be moving forward using a model that works for their unique demands. Every business is unique, there is no one size fits all.

    No matter your approach, security must be your priority

    The new reality will challenge how businesses evolve, as security postures will be ever changing. Organisations will need to make sure they have a fundamental and true understanding of their people, processes and technology making sure these are being consistently reviewed. However this need is currently going unnoticed, underreported and is generally misunderstood.

    Due to the rapid rate at which businesses were forced to close their doors and adapt to working from home, few will have the security measures in place to ensure their data is fully secure. Whether your organisation is fully returning to the office, adopting remote working or remaining fully remote, each approach presents it’s own unique challenges.

     

    But are you approaching your security the right way?

    In the wake of the ever growing and ever evolving security threats we’re being bombarded with, more and more products professing to magically address your security challenges. But inevitably these products need to complement existing systems and can sometimes end up restricting accessibility, hampering productivity and can even cause their own security concerns.

    With the right solutions provider on your side, instead of creating a Frankenstein’s monster of integrated products and programs, you can create a bespoke system that meets your business objectives.

    Once you understand how your people work, the needed compliant processes, along with the IT stack in operation, you can then properly establish a robust, yet flexible IT security policy and strategy. Not only will you be able to establish a process that safeguards your systems and data and complies with increasingly comprehensive legislation, it will allow employees the freedom to work collaboratively, regardless of their location or device.

    At Nouveau we look at your IT security landscape as a whole, including your individual methods of working, before giving you choices. We work with you to create a robust security policy that keeps you safe whilst optimising user accessibility and network speed to maintain productivity.

     

    Whilst the new reality does offer it’s challenges, it is also an opportunity to take a holistic approach to your IT security management and build a better, more resilient future for your organisation.

    ” Being responsible for IT in an organisation which is very tech dependant is a real challenge, especially having no formal IT experience myself.  Having the Nouveau team at the end of the phone is a real-life saver and I have needed a life line many times.  I most appreciate the accessibility, knowledge and friendliness of the team. “

    ” The company I work for has been using Nouveau Solutions for the past 15+ years and I have had the pleasure myself to build up a good, close relationship with them for about 12 of those years.

    Nouveau Solutions have dedicated teams for each different area that are made up of very knowledgeable technicians and engineers that specialise in their specific area of expertise. It is due to this that I always feel confident that Nouveau Solutions will be able to deliver us any IT services that we may request from them (there has been a lot over the years).

    They have always gone above and beyond to deliver high quality professional IT services to meet any requirements that we throw at them within any timeframes that we may set.

    On top of the ad-hoc IT services we request from Nouveau Solutions, they also monitor, manage, maintain and support some of our network infrastructure and have always been on hand to resolve any issues that may be noticed via their monitoring or raised by us within a timely manner.

    We also purchase the majority of our IT equipment including hardware, software and licensing through Nouveau Solutions which is always at a reasonable price and always received within a timely manner.

    Since day one of our relationship with Nouveau Solutions we have been appointed to the same one account manager which has allowed him to get to know our business very well. The service that has been provided by him to us has been nothing but exceptional. He always comes across as knowledgeable in any business discussions that we may have and has always been happy to take the time to communicate with us, make us aware of anything that we need to be aware of, or provide us with updates on anything.  I have always had the impression that his main priority is to ensure that we are happy with everything that Nouveau Solutions provides to us and he will do anything to ensure that is the case.

    All in all, I have nothing but praise to offer for Nouveau Solutions and would highly recommend them to any company that was looking for an IT services company.  There are definitely no plans here to switch to a different IT services company for the foreseeable future.

    Here’s to many more years with using Nouveau Solutions! “

    ” Nouveau have been brilliant from start to finish – very professional and competitive with their service and pricing. We needed a large number of Firewalls to deploy across our global company over a very short time period and thanks to Jack’s excellent availability, Nouveau’s turn-around time was extremely swift, even with nearly no notice. Nouveau not only provided us with the hardware  – one of their competent technicians supplied us with some design work in the past to help with our data centre firewalls replacement project! Nouveau have been great to work with. “

    ” In the summer of 2017, I approached Nouveau in the hope of finding a competent partner that could help us through an upcoming hardware refresh. A priority of ours was to discover a local business (within 20 miles) that excelled and specialised in HPE, Dell, Fortinet and Microsoft/Office 365 as we planned to refresh our whole core infrastructure,. This included storage, infrastructure hosting and networking (core, access and perimeter) for our headquarters and our other branches. After an extensive phase of speccing, detail planning and quoting, Andy Swain and his team were able to offer a “spot on” solution for our demands with a very high cost/value ratio. This project led to a very open and trusting partnership with Nouveau and made them our No.1 partner within IT. “
