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. 

It’s Showtime! How Amazon’s Echo Show Can Improve Workflow

Back in March, we wrote a blog post about how AI Assistants are fast becoming the new productivity tool in workplaces. In this post, we mentioned how Amazon’s Echo and Echo Dot devices are key examples of voice-enabled devices that are leading this charge. Little did we know at the time that Amazon were preparing for the release of a new addition to the Echo range – the Echo Show. The Show was launched in May and has already received favourable reviews from the likes of Wired and Endgadget. Essentially, the Show is an Echo device which comes with a 7in touchscreen (slightly smaller than the screen size of an iPad Mini). This opens up a range of possibilities for Echo’s underlying Alexa technology to be used for both home and workplace use. Indeed, being the early-adopters that we are, Comunet recently received an Echo Show device to use in our own office! In this blog post, we want to discuss the business applications of the Echo Show and how it can improve your organisation’s productivity.

On Comunet's YouTube channel, we recently published a video case study outlining the work that we performed for Gliderol, Australia's leading manufacturer of residential garage doors.

In partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), we were able to help Gliderol make this transition successfully and on time. To find out more, check out our video case study below:
