Cloud computing, mobile and cyber security: The technologies driving digital transformation

Secure connectivity, cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), cybersecurity – all these are synonymous with digital transformation. Work from home and hybrid work trends have only accelerated the importance of digital transformation and the need for companies to have secure and reliable remote working solutions in place.

These trends are expected to remain - long after the pandemic - because of the benefits they bring such as flexibility, productivity, work-life balance and cost savings.

Therefore, with dispersed workforces across multiple locations and various countries, having secure and scalable digital networks that can safely facilitate remote working and business continuity across devices is a top business priority for leaders.
