The Technologies Businesses Need for Success in 2021

As businesses wrap up their budgeting and planning for 2021, it’s a great time for NHC partners to stress to your clients the importance of incorporating technologies like software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), unified communications as a service (UCaaS), and security. As companies continue navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, these key elements are essential for running a successful business in 2021.

Ensure Adequate Bandwidth With SD-WAN

Businesses continue to see increases in big data transmissions, which include large-size video, voice, and content files. The skyrocketing use of video conferencing has taken these transmissions to another level. SD-WAN enables organizations to optimize their bandwidth, allowing them to stay connected with their clients no matter how much data is being transmitted.

Cloud-based SD-WAN solutions are expected to lead the way into the future. Adoption of these solutions has increased due to the cloud’s ability to support dynamic and highly automated operations in a cost-effective manner(1).

Enable Dependable Connections for Your Clients’ Remote Workers With UCaaS

UCaaS deployments are growing at an annual rate of 29%(2), largely driven by 2020’s increase in remote work. Unifying communication tools is essential for improving business efficiency, reducing costs, and enhancing productivity. Your clients could easily realize these benefits by incorporating UCaaS into their operational platforms.

UCaaS offers your customers a number of advantages. They get reliable collaboration tools that allow them to optimize communication across multiple channels. Many UCaaS systems are offered on a pay-as-you-go basis, which keeps costs low. These systems are also flexible and can scale as needed.

Protect Your Clients With Top-Notch Cyber Security

Sixty-eight percent of business leaders say their security risks are increasing(3). Trying to save money by employing second-rate cyber security is not a smart strategy for your clients. Today’s security challenges require a comprehensive approach that incorporates 24/7 monitoring, advanced threat detection, and advanced technology solutions.

Cyber threats are an all too real problem for organizations of all sizes. Enterprises and small businesses alike must take precautions to keep out data breaches, viruses, malware, ransomware, phishing, and a host of other scams. It only takes one successful hack to unravel years spent building a successful business – and reputation.

In addition to upgrading to the latest available security technology, your clients must also incorporate cyber security awareness training and security best practices into their culture.
