At the onset, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the frontline workers in such times of crisis. These are unprecedented times; to ensure the safety of our employees, customers, end-users, and partners around the world i2e Consulting is adhering to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the government guidelines for both our offices in the US and India. As a response plan, we are adapting our processes and technologies to remain connected and deliver projects timely. i2e Consulting also pledged support towards PM cares. Together, we shall overcome this pandemic.
The safety of our employees and their families is paramount at i2e. To stop the spread and flatten the curve, we have extended work from home to our entire team. We are leveraging Microsoft 365 to collaborate with each other and stay productive. In addition, we are conducting regular engagement sessions and video conferences to help deal with quarantine stress. In it together.
A special mention to our IT Admin department for stepping up to the occasion.
We value our commitment towards our partners and customers. Our rapid response action has enabled us to achieve milestones and project deliveries despite the lockdown. i2e is helping spread awareness, best practices on remote working solutions like WVD (Windows Virtual Desktop), Teams collaboration, etc. i2e Consulting has also submitted possible software preventive and supportive ideas at various portals to help fight COVID-19. Some of our collaborative partners are dealing with mission staff crisis, we are helping them connect to available resources to work remotely from home.
At i2e, we have always taken security seriously. With the new normal of remote working, we have taken a few additional measures for data protection and business continuity. Along with the existing Windows Information Protection (WIP) to protect against accidental data leaks, we have implemented the Intune Policy. This ensures corporate data protection, no change in the existing enterprise environment and apps and requires files to only be saved to a single source, and not the local device, or other cloud storage services. We also have Azure Information Protection (AIP) to have greater end-to-end control over enterprise data. This helps classify, label data, and protect it using encryption. On-demand screen monitoring and reporting has also been enabled for customers.
Times are difficult; however, together we shall overcome this. Companies have already started human trials for vaccines so help will be here soon. Till then let’s help each other and adapt ourselves with each new revised guideline.
