Myth Busting Cloud Security - It's all about Risk Management.

Almost 6 months into leading the teams at Comunet, I’ve had quite a few people ask me what is the biggest surprise or challenge that I’ve come across. 

Probably not-surprisingly, it’s been dealing with the common misconception that “the cloud” is less secure than on-premise solutions – which is exacerbated by the ambiguity that exists in many organisations around cloud computing in general. 

Cloud computing has now been around long enough to no longer be a fad, and the statistics around cloud use and security incidents leave little room for debate on the fact that, configured correctly, Cloud Services (such as those provided by Microsoft or AWS) are more secure than on-premise solutions. 

Here’s The Answer - Previewing Microsoft Forms

Over the last few months, we have been covering some of the new programs available in Microsoft’s Office 365 suite. Today, we wanted to write about a new service that has only recently been previewed to the public – Microsoft Forms. As the name suggests, Forms is a platform that allows you to create forms that can be used as surveys, quizzes and polls. It was originally launched as part of Microsoft’s Office 365 Education package, but is now being expanded into commercial markets. We have been able to take a closer look at this new software and have outlined some of the key features and benefits below.

Office 365 – Why Your Business Should Make the Switch Today

Comunet have always been proud advocates for cloud computing, but what gives us the greatest sense of satisfaction is seeing how the cloud can deliver benefits to our clients in their day-to-day work. Microsoft’s Office 365 is a great example of this. It is hard to imagine a workplace computer these days without Microsoft’s flagship programs such as Word, Excel or PowerPoint (just to name a few). The introduction of Office 365, however, changed the way that we access and work with these applications. By providing their Office suite on the cloud, Microsoft opened up new possibilities for workplaces. In this post, we want to talk about some of these possibilities and why your organisation should make the switch to Office 365 today.

Working with an organisation in the manufacturing or horticulture industry is always a fresh experience for our team, because we have the opportunity to ask the question “what can be done differently?” As is often the case with many organisations in these industries, processes and practices are underpinned by years of experience. For a technology company such as Comunet, our role is to view operations from a new perspective. This allows us to have a conversation with Engineers, Operations Managers and CEOs about how technology can work with their current processes to elevate outcomes for their customers. In this blog post, we want to share some examples of where these conversations have lead.

Yesterday’s state-wide blackout in South Australia left thousands of people in the dark for hours on end. Events such as these do not happen often, but that does detract from the now-proven fact that they can happen. The question is, were your IT systems prepared for yesterday’s events? More importantly, are they prepared if such events happen again?
