How to Support Secure Remote Collaboration

MSP Best Practices WFH

During this global pandemic, effective collaboration is a challenge facing many businesses. Many are turning to consumer file sync and share tools such as Google Drive or Dropbox to collaborate during this time. For MSPs, this can present a data protection challenge. When clients use consumer-grade solutions to store and share critical business files, MSPs lose control and oversight of their data. This exposes them to considerable risk.

Remote work can present other challenges and risks, such as the likelihood to be targeted by external threats, like ransomware. Additionally, using new technology and tools to continue employee collaboration and productivity can add complexity to SMBs that must adhere to specific compliance rules or auditing procedures.
