Two local IT network and security specialists have launched a new company to help businesses with their post-pandemic transformation strategies.
After a collective 45 years of working in IT and communications, Chris Langlois and Stafford Slater are launching Enso Solutions to help local firms review or update their current environments while assisting them in planning their future transformation strategies.
"In May 2020, it was reported that the proportion of malicious email attacks targeting home workers had increased from 12% before the UK’s lockdown began in March to more than 60% six weeks later," Mr Slater said.
"Our goal is to work closely with our customers to ensure that they not only have secure and effective network solutions in their office but can also support their workforce to operate just as efficiently and safely at home.
Mr Langlois added: "We are finding that many companies are now in the position of needing to make decisions about their future business models. Do they go back to business as normal and bring all staff back into the office, or will we see a permanent shift to flexible home-working solutions? More than likely a combination of both will occur.
"Whatever their decision, companies must have secure and efficient networks ready to limit and respond quickly to cyber-attacks that can seriously disrupt business activity. A previous study highlighted that in the UK a small business is successfully hacked every 19 seconds. We aim to ensure that our customers are suitably protected to avoid the reputational damage and costs that these opportunistic criminals can inflict."
