It's Personal

The United States has lately been trying to catch up with the realities that come from facing the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, with business and school closures, travel and crowd restrictions, and fear of catching an easily transmitted and potentially deadly virus changing the way people live and work.

While the world has faced disasters before that have affected business, particularly the IT industry, those are typically one-time events whose impacts, while massive, happen at once. With the COVID-19 virus, the impact is only now beginning to be felt, and no one knows how big it will be or how long it will last.

IT solution providers are key to keep businesses running at a time when employees and customers are increasingly forced to remain at home. The only way such business can run is by having access to the internet, VPNs, remote access technology, and data protection, and that means depending on their local solution providers to be there with assistance even if those providers can't just always jump in a car or on a plane to provide support.

CRN reached out to several solution providers to talk about the difficulties--and sometimes the joys--of supporting clients in trying times.

Turn the page for their stories.

And from CRN to everyone: Stay safe. Stay healthy. And wash those hands!
