Why Remote Working Is So Popular And Is Here To Stay

Remote working became popular over recent years due to the pandemic, but many companies have opted to keep this in place moving forward due to the many benefits and advantages of allowing employees to work from home.

One of the main benefits of allowing employees to work from their own homes is that it removes the need for office space. Renting or owning office space can be a huge cost for any business, regardless of size, and so cutting this from the budget can help reduce spending massively.

While some businesses may choose to keep office space, this does still allow them the option of downsizing still which can help to reduce the cost as well.

Another key benefit of working from home is that it can increase employee happiness and satisfaction. For some, the commute to work can be long and difficult and often employees may run into unexpected difficulties travelling to and from the office.

By allowing them to work from home, you reduce the risk of lateness and absence and employees can start their day in a stress-free and relaxed environment instead of on the back of a busy commute.

Remote working also allows for more flexibility. Employees can more easily change their hours either for their own needs or to help the business and it enables you to take advantage of this.

Many jobs don’t need employees to all be working the same hours, however, the nature of office life is that everyone will be in work at the same time during office hours.

Allowing employees to work from home allows you to rearrange more flexible working hours that suit both you, your business and your employees’ needs.

There are many more advantages to remote working which play into the reasons why, for many companies, this way of working is here to stay.

    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.
