In this guide, we will provide information to help you audit your current communications (and other business-critical technologies) and determine whether (and how) you need to act in each case.

The clock is ticking towards the demise of the PSTN. If you don’t have an alternative fully in place by December 2025, your phones will stop ringing, your lifts and other vital facilities may cease to work and, your customers may be cut off from contacting you. Whatever stage you’re currently at, Daisy’s specialist team can help you assess your needs and manage a seamless migration that works for you and your customers.

Daisy SD-WAN and the Building of a Future-Proof Business [Comic Series]

Daisy SD-WAN and the Building of a Future-Proof Business [Comic Series]

Part of a comic series, our third issue encounters a construction company that builds today’s infrastructure on tomorrow’s technology.

If costly, spotty, low-bandwidth connectivity fails to meet the demands and affect the delivery of complex and schedule-driven construction projects, you’ve got a big problem – and that’s exactly what happens in the latest issue of our SD-WAN comic series.

Faced with a stellar development project, a location with little to no connectivity options, and ailing bandwidth thanks to a recent shift to cloud-based applications, a construction company finds itself in need of a network infrastructure built on a more robust foundation.

Building a future-proof network

Read on to find out how the use of in-the-box pre-configured equipment, paired with centralised management of the company’s entire network and LTE (Long Term Evolution) connectivity helped renovate and future-proof the business’ operating model.

Daisy Cyber Security Evaluation

Cyber Security Evaluation: Check Your Security Posture [Self-evaluation]

Our comprehensive evaluation is designed for you to download and use to assess your current cyber security posture against a set of critical questions.

Why “take the test”?

This evaluation will allow you to review your current coverage of essential cyber security elements and identify areas that need attention. Along the way, it gives you helpful tips and a few suggestions of solutions that can help with each element – if you need them.

Security remains a key challenge for UK organisations, with COVID-19, Brexit pressures, and homeworking creating new opportunities for cyber criminals to exploit. We advocate a simple and sensible approach to security, aligned to the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework. We group the five high-level functions that NIST covers, into the areas of Discovery (identify, detect), Prevention (protect) and Response (respond, recover) to help you create a well-rounded approach to security.

Who should download this evaluation tool?

All IT and information security professionals will benefit from better understanding their cyber security posture and their level of vulnerability and risk. Formal security audits are important, but it’s also essential to understand the fundamental truths yourself. This evaluation presents a useful cross-section of the building blocks included in the NIST framework.

Our cyber security evaluation will help you assess your current security posture and provide pointers towards improvements where you may need it. Download your copy to:

This document outlines the basic steps that you need to take to protect homeworkers, and explains why, so that you can make sure the solutions and policies that you have in place already are protecting you in the way that they should.
