UCaaS security flying high in the cloud

Security is a perennial bugbear. One of those topics nobody likes talking about but everybody has to, especially when it drifts into largely unchartered territory – such as a cloud environment. But with cloud becoming the obvious choice for enterprise application delivery, the as-a-service model also seems natural to apply to Unified Communications (UC). There’s no shortage of research that will tell you how rapidly UC is set to be adopted: something like 56 per cent of enterprises and 66 per cent of SMEs plan to implement or upgrade UC within the next year, but there is still some trepidation, and much of it is around security. You might consider that these concerns come from the ‘old guard’, those who are reluctant to embrace new technology, as the adoption of UC is being driven by Millennials, eager to use the high end consumer devices they are familiar with in a work environment. But Millennials will also make up almost half of the global workforce within the next five years, so business has to move with the times. Depending on the size of the organisation, the top concerns around UC are either security or cost. For organisations larger than 1,000 employees, security is the top concern, according to IDG’s Unified Communications…

Blog Series: Business Challenges solved by Cloud CollaborationPart 1 – Connecting Highly Mobile Employees

In this four-part blog series we’ll explore the top business challenges solved by cloud-based video collaboration. Part one focuses on connecting highly mobile employee roles that can be found in any industry, like field sales, field services, and consultants. And some industries have even greater needs for reliable mobile collaboration, like manufacturing, oil & gas, and healthcare. As organizations seek to optimize field operations, the adoption of BYOD mobile collaboration is expanding. According to a recent report published by Nemertes Research1, 32.5% of enterprise employees now use WLAN, cellular, or other forms of wireless as their primary network technology. This ups the ante when it comes to video-enabling mobile users for business collaboration, because mobile and wireless networks are often unpredictable in terms of performance. The definition of mobile video collaboration is expanding as well: mobile collaboration is no longer limited to smartphones and tablets. There are emerging mobile use cases, like “see-what-I-see” field services applications leveraging smart glasses, drones and more. According to ABI Research2 the enterprise wearables market is exploding and expected to reach $ 18 billion by 2019. Many IT managers are turning to cloud to video-enable mobile devices for employees. But not every video conferencing cloud is the same when it comes to delivering video that…
