When it comes to the current threat landscape collaborating with your colleagues, suppliers, customers and partners is more important than ever. The media is dominated with news about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the government is discussing implementing a full lockdown of the UK, leading to social isolation and mass shutdowns of offices to contain the spread of the virus.

Organisations need to plan for the worst should their offices be shut, and their employees need to work remotely. These plans give huge challenges to organisations. While your infrastructure is likely to support a percentage of remote workers, it may not be robust enough to support an entire organisation.

This is where Microsoft Cloud – especially Office365 and Teams – can help

Microsoft Teams provides a highly flexible, secure and scalable collaborative workspace to ensure productivity doesn’t suffer when your workforce needs to work from home, in isolated offices or from anywhere. With its ‘anytime, anywhere, any device’ approach to driving secure productivity, you can be sure that users can stay connected whenever and wherever needed.

Your employees can connect to Teams through their local internet connection, which is secured through conditional access with multi-factor authentication. This allows full collaboration with colleagues through high fidelity audio, video, application sharing and real-time co-authoring of documents.
