When unexpected weather hits, forest fires rapidly spread across a country or a global health pandemic occurs, businesses require secure, remote access to their networks and applications. The current outbreak of Covid-19 has resulted in a rising need for remote working, globally. In the current times of change and uncertainty, companies are needing to prepare and adapt in order to collaborate with their employees and continue to work as normally as possible.
This has been the case with Wates Group, a leading construction company based in the UK. To help reduce the spread of the virus and the impact on its employees, Wates Group needed to quickly enable an increase in the number of their employees who could work from home. Ensuring secure, remote access for them and a more flexible remote working solution during a rapidly developing situation has been a priority.
SecureIdentity MFA licenses were purchased for a short period, to accompany the existing installed base of remote users to accommodate the increased number of employees working from home during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Matt Mann, Group Head of IT Operations states, “The MFA licenses provided by SecurEnvoy mean our office-based employees can securely access our applications and networks allowing them to carry on working in the same way as if they were in the office.”
“At such a challenging time, businesses like Wates are looking for flexibility from trusted suppliers to allow us to keep working as effectively as possible. SecurEnvoy has recognised the impact that this pandemic is having for people and companies alike and I have been impressed with how well they have responded.”
