5 Hot Hybrid Work, Cloud Business Trends: NWN Carousel CEO
With hybrid work here to stay, NWN Carousel CEO Jim Sullivan explains five hot customer buying trends, needs and strategies that are driving hybrid work sales.
Cybersecurity Is Critical
Another big trend in hybrid cloud is just how much customers are focused on cybersecurity protection as many employees work from anywhere on their laptop or other devices. Securing hybrid workforces across independent environments and all domains and technologies, is critical to customer success.
“Security is so important to everybody as everyone’s kind of going into these next generation systems in the cloud, and also having to adapt to where employees with a device could be anywhere. So then the network could be anywhere,” Sullivan said.
To drive sales and customer success, NWN Carousel launched this month a new Secure Hybrid Work Assessment to provide customers with the ability to understand and improve their levels of protection against cyber threats. The company also launched its Next-Generation Firewall Services to provide customers with additional levels of network security as they enable employees to work from anywhere.
“Someone’s only going to be as strong as their weakest link. So if you have the devices secure, but then it’s going into a different or unsecured network, it’s not going to work for you. People can be at home, they could be in the office, they could be anywhere,” said Sullivan. “We’re very focused on security for the applications and environments that we are deploying.”
