Employees Set To Become Nomadic Workers This Summertime!

With the pandemic revealing just how successful remote working can be for businesses and employees alike, it seems that many people are now thinking about taking nomadic working trips over the summer months, combining a bit of work and play.

A new YouGov survey, commissioned by Virgin Media O2, has revealed that 19 per cent of people are now planning to do their work while on a coastal or rural holiday, instead of working from home, the London Evening Standard reports.

Of those asked, nearly three-quarters said that they’re keen to be able to continue working from a variety of places in the future, whether that’s at home, the office or, indeed, somewhere else entirely.

They explained that they enjoy the flexibility provided by nomadic working, as well as finding that they’re more productive when they get regular exercise and when they’re able to travel while doing their jobs.

Managing director of business with Virgin Media O2 Jo Bertram was quoted by the news source as saying: “As we look to upgrade the UK, we have an opportunity to evolve, not just doing things the way we’ve always done them, but through new innovations and technology to boost productivity and efficiency, right across the UK.”

Technology is, of course, absolutely key when it comes to facilitating remote working and it’s essential that the right tools are provided, which includes hardware, communication tools and internet support.

It’s also important to bear in mind that the boundaries between work and life can become increasingly blurred when people work remotely full time, with research showing that remote employees consistently log more work hours than in-office personnel. Being flexible with schedules and work arrangements can help employers get around this obstacle.

    Backing up is VITAL!

    Backing up should be everyones top priority. All too often we see businesses decide to start backing up the wrong side of a costly hard drive disaster or data breach.

    With viruses and malware now capable of causing so much, often irreversible, damage, a substantial backup is imperative. If you’re infected with ransomware, a recent backup often the only way to get you back up and running.

    Why offsite backup and not a removable hard drive?

    Preferably both! But never just a hard drive. Why? Hard drives can fail. It’s as simple as that. Ransomware infections can also creep onto hard drives if they’re left plugged into an infected machine. 

    ​SYS3 use the most reliable and intelligent backup solutions on the market to ensure that our customers’ data is kept secure.

    Why buy your hardware from SYS3?

    Years ago, SYS3 started out by building and supplying custom computer hardware. We know our stuff.

    We keep up with the latest in technology so we are able to provide our customers with the best possible equipment without breaking the bank. Whether you need a new server, laptop, printer or network switch, we’ll always provide you with a variety of options and recommendations to suit your business needs.

    The more advanced technology becomes, the more advanced the bad guys become. Gone are the days when attackers were easy to spot in a badly worded email.

    ​Did you know you can get an infection just by hovering your mouse over a dodgy website banner? Worse? Traditional antivirus products cannot protect you against everything.

    ​Human error is still largely responsible for infections and viruses but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the best protection possible to safeguard your employees and ultimately, your business.

    ​Partnered with Heimdal, SYS3 provide market-leading protection that is proactive, not reactive like traditional antivirus.


    Spam email makes up 70% of ALL email traffic across the world and social engineering means scammers can directly target key employees. Is your job title on social media?

    Over 60% of breaches are caused by human error. Are you confident that your staff are fully trained to spot email-borne threats and avoid falling victim?

    How SYS3 can help

    Just one click has the potential to grind your entire business to a halt and generate a costly bill to put right. What makes things worse is that email viruses are now incredibly clever, highly convincing, and can be very difficult to spot.

    ​Our priority is to make sure our customers are supported and protected as much as possible. 99% of our customers have adopted our mail filtering service and it comes highly recommended. It’s the first line of defence and a vital tool.
