Wildix vs. Zoom: A Security Showdown

Wildix vs. Zoom: A Security Showdown
Wildix vs. Zoom: A Security Showdown
Amid the sudden surge in demand for smart working, one option that’s caught on with literally millions of consumers is Zoom. With its rise to the spotlight, the freemium videoconferencing app has drawn a lot of attention — but not always for the best reasons.

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.

Surprisingly, these familiar, unpleasant faces are still around to bother us: there’s the old, outdated Walking Dead Vendors; the young, mismanaged VoIPTruz; and the gigantic, yet otherwise unremarkable Carriers. Continue reading “Enter the Vampire Vendor: The MSP’s New Enemy and How to Beat Them”

What Does It Take to Activate Smart Working in a Company, from a Technical Standpoint?

Activating smart working in a company in just one working day — is it technically possible, or it is just another marketing trick?

In the recent weeks and months, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many companies around the world have been struggling to provide their employees with tools that can enable them to work from home while maintaining the same level of productivity and availability.

This is especially true for those companies who never had the practice of remote working in place before the outbreak. Just a few months ago, smart working was simply “nice to have”, and was used only by a small percentage of companies. Today, it is no longer optional; it has become a must-have capability for every business as a means of survival.

In this blog post we will analyze, from a technical perspective, whether it is possible to quickly and seamlessly activate smart working in a small to medium scale company and how much time it will take.

“Too Small for Smart Working”? Think Again!

Business Continuity is Essential for Every Company

Despite all the ways that smart working has come to dominate the conversation in office work, for many small businesses, the practice still seems a bridge too far.

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.
