As a trusted partner who cares for enterprises’ varying needs, we immediately provides free support and special remote connectivity offerings to both our existing and non-existing customers, joining hands with them to fight against the challenges.” “Recently, major cities in China are facing delay in resuming business operations and different levels of lockdown. In Singapore, travelers are advised to defer all travel to Hubei Province and a non-essential travel to Mainland China, Daegu and Cheongdo in South Korea. Many ASEAN countries has imposed an entry ban or travel restriction on a travelers, regardless of their nationalities who visit Hubei, Zhejiang and Jiangsu. These impose a big challenge for enterprises to maintain their business as usual. Besides, IT resources is another critical factor to support those staff who are undergoing home isolation or having work from home needs, so that they could be able to work remotely and seamlessly. Therefore, many multi-national companies (MNCs) are having huge remote VPN connectivity needs, insufficient resources, overload of remote desktop needs, and the difficulty of accessing companies’ critical systems when the staff is working from home,” Taylor emphasized.
To prepare for any unpredictable incidents or disasters happened in future, enterprises’ IT department could re-visit its monitoring and risk management capabilities so as to pose a solid foundation for any new challenges. “Although the outbreaks are mainly happened in Mainland China, the number of people infected in South Korea, Japan, Italy, Iran is rising quickly. MNCs are also facing travel bans from different countries which affect their business operations. It is vital for enterprises to review their cross-regional IT resources in order to plan ahead,” Taylor recommended. Cloud backup, off-site/cloud disaster recovery, IPSec VPN and SSL VPN are solutions that enterprises can consider to sustain business continuity in this challenging time.
From the recent situation with which work from home needs may extend to months, CITIC Telecom CPC found that both rapid solutions deployment and stable services are of equal importance to the customers. Enterprises also need to be aware of the impact that travel bans would bring to their businesses. CITIC Telecom CPC expects that the cloud desktop, IPSec VPN, and SSL VPN special offers that it launches could on the one hand protect enterprises’ staff from risk and break through the limitations of distance and locations, while on the other hand, enable them to adopt remote working model and enjoy the same experience as working in office with easy access to the company’s internal network and applications.
