Plectica LLC, has launched Team.Video, a video conference platform designed to inspire increased engagement in meetings and empower organizations to measure and improve the health of their meeting culture. Virtual workforces brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic have increased the need for better remote collaboration tools. While existing video conferencing tools have kept work teams connected, they have also led to employee fatigue as many meetings lack the right purpose, people and participation.

Team.Video improves the overall workflow of remote meetings and is designed for teams that aspire to conduct remote meetings based on mutual trust, equitable involvement and genuine collaboration. This approach is successful in facilitating meetings that are efficient and productive as well as enjoyable and motivating for everyone involved.

Responding to the rapid increase in work-from-home cyber security incidents at small and midsized businesses (SMBs), DIGIGUARD is now focusing its Cyber Threat Protection Services on remote workforce IT security. The FBI has seen a 400 percent increase in cybersecurity attack complaints since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to DIGIGUARD's Harvey Yan, "IT security works best with strategically planned layers of comprehensive protection." At a minimum, Yan urges SMBs do three things:

  • Secure and update network perimeter defenses along with endpoints that access the network such as computers, laptops and mobile phones.
  • Back up and secure business data for recovery in the event of a cyberattack or system failure.
  • Train employees to recognize and avoid cyber threats such as malware and phishing attacks.

Mobile Solutions has introduced Android as a Mobile Hotspot.

With the influx of working remotely, businesses are looking for solutions that will enable end users and allow them to maintain control. Basic mobile hotspots, used to deliver internet to remote locations or workers, lack manageability in terms of locating and remote configuration by administrators. This can leave valuable mobile endpoints vulnerable.

Hotspot devices make it easy to stay connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. This has resulted in a huge spike in demand for hotspot devices and unfortunately, this means that for many organizations, hotspots are no longer available. Mobile Solutions' Android as a Mobile Hotspot facilitates streamlined internet access via Android devices that are locked down to kiosk hotspot mode. This solution enables organizations to provide remote working and schools to provide distance learning with ease.
