At Wildix, we’re getting to know examples of these inspiring figures with our ongoing “Women in Tech” column. For this feature, we had the exceptional pleasure of interviewing Linda Stiles, HR Manager for Wildix UK Partner ElemenTel Ltd. Continue reading “Women in Tech: Linda Stiles — ElemenTel Ltd”
The explanation for Zoom’s popularity is most likely that it does what it says on the label: it provides a fast, approachable means of connecting people over video (albeit without providing the degree of end-to-end encryption it promises).
In a perfect world, this would be all an end-user needs out of a web conferencing app. But the problem is, we’re living in a world full of security and privacy threats. Continue reading “Wildix vs. Zoom: A Security Showdown”
The MSP’s New Enemy and How to Beat Them
For today’s MSP, the road to success is long, bumpy and full of suspicious hitchhikers who’ll rob you the second you let them into your car.
This isn’t anything I haven’t said before. I and the rest of Wildix have talked a lot about “enemies” in the marketplace — competitors for Partners and Wildix ourselves.

Sure, governments and private citizens alike are clamoring for quarantines and social distancing. But that doesn’t always translate to localized players deciding to start smart working themselves.
It seems a risky investment, for one thing, as the ROI on it is unclear. For another, smart working still carries a certain connotation of high-earning salespeople or companies set up with a scenic view of the downtown skyline — painting the picture of a luxury that more humbly sized teams can’t afford.
