Disruptions are often unforeseen. This could be a catastrophic event like a hurricane, a fire, or an earthquake. Disruptions, however, can also come in other forms such as that of a pandemic. This means that a building doesn’t necessarily have to be demolished or lives have to be lost for an unforeseen event to completely interrupt a company.
We are witnessing this in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has impacted the continuity of many businesses while forcing most of the workforce to work from home. The remote workforce poses new challenges for businesses as access to the relevant software and third-party platforms need to be ensured for business continuity. One company that realizes this and is making every effort to help employees work remotely and securely is FWP, a provider of contemporary IT and software solutions designed to help customers adapt to the ever-changing workplace.
The Driving Force Behind FWP
As businesses tackle the current COVID-19 crisis, executives must consider a series of challenges and take measures that not only allow them to respond to severe market shocks now but also aid recovery and better equip their company for the future.
The logic behind business continuity planning is simple—any disruption in operations means loss of income/revenue for a business. If these missed earnings add up with increased costs, company profits go down. Moreover, business insurance can only cover the physical loss incurred due to disruption; it does not account for the customers lost to a competitor due to disruption in business operations.
Realizing this, FWP looks to provide its customers with solutions that minimize the risk of disrupted business operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Based in the UK, FWP Global LTD utilizes a highly experienced IT team to empower employees everywhere to work remotely and securely. The company specializes in providing customers with the latest solutions that are designed for end-user computing.
Solutions and services offered by FWP include Software Asset Management, End Point Management, Environment Assessment and Analytics to Data Loss Prevention, Cyber Security, and Malware Detection. FWP looks to deliver excellence in the above by partnering with like-minded organizations that are focused on offering flexible and robust IT solutions.
The Challenge That FWP Faced in Providing Customers with the Latest Solutions That Empower Their Employees to Work Remotely and Securely
FWP has prioritized data loss prevention and endpoint protection of its increasing number of clients that are now working remotely. “Our focus is to provide comprehensive solutions based on the specific needs of the end-user. Lately, we’re seeing an increasing number of clients that are working remote due to COVID, and data loss prevention and endpoint protection is a top priority for employers and IT departments,” says Mark Adams, Managing Director at FWP Global.
With the above goal in mind, the company set out to find a comprehensive endpoint protection solution. During its search, FWP came across many solutions, but none of them offered the ease of navigation the company was looking for. After a lot of research and failed trials, FWP was able to find what it was looking for—an endpoint protection solution that offered a single view and was easy to navigate. “The demand for a comprehensive endpoint protection solution drove us to expand into the security market. We looked at numerous solutions but Comodo offers a single view from the Dragon platform, which is easy to navigate,” revealed Adams.
How FWP Is Making Life Easier for Customers and Employees
FWP partnered with Comodo to provide customers with the latest solutions that empower their employees to work remotely and securely. FWP chose Comodo’s Dragon Platform with Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP), which is a patent-pending auto containment technology with active breach protection that neutralizes ransomware, malware, and cyberattacks.
Comodo’s AEP utilizes a Default Deny Platform to provide complete protection against zero-day threats while having no impact on end-user experience or workflows. Additionally, Comodo’s Valkyrie analyzes and gives a trusted verdict for 100% of files on a network. “The biggest benefit we’re enjoying since working with Comodo is that suspicious files are containerized, assessed, and easy to manage.” Comodo’s Valkyrie analyzes and gives a trusted verdict for every file–no other company will analyze and give a trusted verdict for 100% of the files on a network. “Plus, the collaboration with Comodo is fantastic; they provide us with world-class support,” says Adams.
FWP is benefiting from Comodo’s unique approach to cybersecurity. Comodo’s platform shares intelligence and is, therefore, more secure than disparate products that claim the best of the breed but don’t share information. Comodo has architected its cyber-security product to maximize intelligent sharing between every component of the platform, therefore providing superior security. This shift from reactive to proactive is what makes Comodo unique with the capacity to protect all domains of business activity and threat—from network to web to cloud—with confidence and efficacy.
