Business continuity relies on a world-class networking infrastructure

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, businesses around the globe have had to rapidly alter the way they do business. This includes enabling employees to work remotely while finding effective solutions to meet virtually, as well as the way in which businesses interact with clients. For a company to continue to thrive and be successful, it has become vital to evolve on a digital level. Networking infrastructure and modern IT solutions are linked to business resilience.

It is critical for Kenyan businesses to have more dependable networks and communications infrastructure with increased bandwidth and security in order to survive and grow. For companies with a remote workforce, better networking solutions are needed. SEACOM Business provides companies with superior networking and information and communications technology (ICT) solutions.

Our world-class networking model and related solutions are scalable and future-proof. This allows companies to continually adapt to the ever-changing demands of modern business. Increasing a company’s networking capacity, however, means attracting higher security risks from cyber attacks and hackers, which is why we also offer advanced security solutions and secure cloud-based data storage.

Switching to cloud-based computing

In order for a company to maintain its efficiency and productivity, while factoring in remote working, it is essential to utilize the cloud. The majority of successful companies around the world have already migrated to the cloud. To do this properly, it is critical to have the right infrastructure in place, as well as cloud-based servers that can support collaboration tools, business applications, video conferencing, and e-commerce.

To be able to seamlessly collaborate on projects and successfully perform their day-to-day tasks, employees must have access to applications that are cloud-based and compatible with one another. Microsoft 365 is an important example of this as it includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Teams and PowerBI, which are all compatible and intuitive to use.

Home connections also need to be upgraded for resilience

To be productive and successful in the age of remote working, both corporate networks and home connections should be secure and reliable. Scalability and safe access via virtual private networks (VPNs) are key. With employees working from home, the home connection becomes a critical component of business resilience.

Switching to a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), which utilizes software to intelligently guide traffic across the network, not only increases efficiency, security, and reliability, but may also lower the company's networking costs. As companies continue to navigate their way forward, it is important to prioritise networking and ICT infrastructure that fully benefits their growth.

Solutions such as the cloud, SD-WAN, sophisticated security software and managed network services will all be required for seamless productivity and ultimate success, whether working from the office or from home.
