“How did the Covid-19 change working manners?”

6th September 2021

The Covid-19 crisis has changed the way we live our lives. Keeping our distance means many of us are working from home for the first time and adapting to new ways of doing our jobs. For many businesses the Covid-19 epidemic has made teleworking the only feasible alternative to having their workers on site. The video-conferences became essential to collaborating effectively while working from home. Microsoft Teams, Webex, Zoom and other collaborative platforms have become a part of our daily lives. During corona pandemic, videoconferencing has become the substitute for group meetings, conferences, webinars, training or even a simple conversation with colleagues. Thanks to these technologies, that there has never been a “better” time in history to work from home. But utilizing this incredibly useful technology can’t be considered fully secure and reliable. The choice of a video conferencing solution is always a compromise between features. And it fits on the one hand, and security and privacy on the other. User requirements like performance and availability, features (audio/video, document sharing, whiteboard, questionnaires, etc.), platforms (smartphones, computers, meeting rooms, telephone call, etc.) and technical restrictions such as available bandwidth (broadband or limited connection) need to be weighed up against security requirements like encryption, access control, compliance, exploit mitigation and others. An effective solution is a delicate balance of all that mentioned above. Using an extremely secure solution is not helpful if it doesn’t fulfill the remote employee’s basic communications needs. Similarly, it is not wise to select a very functional solution which does not provide an appropriate level of security. When assessing the suitability of platforms for video conferencing we need to remember that the term ‘secure’ has no precise definition. Security is the ability to provide suitable level of confidentiality, integrity and availability for the specific use-case. In other words – there is no single answer to the question of whether any communications platform is secure enough – it depends on who’s using it and what for. In its turn, Eurodesign has implemented appropriate usage of work-related videoconferencing and solve barriers for customers. With the support of team behind our services and products, we made professional partnership experience with global companies such as Cisco, AVAYA, Microsoft, Zoom whose portfolio includes both Cloud and On-prems solutions
