Hi Everyone,

In light of recent events with the COVID-19 virus, we want to do our part in relieving some of the pressure. This sudden shift puts an immense of pressure on IT departments that have to quickly adjust to a complete remote workforce.

Hi, I actually have a question sorta related to this.

I'm part of a smaller business that doesn't use O365. So we don't have Teams and I'm looking for a rather inexpensive online meeting tool. Before this comes up, I tried Team's free thing they advertise, but it doesn't work here in Portugal for me.

I tried Zoom, but found it lacking. I thought about Slack, but that uses zoom... Lastly, I checked out Discord. While it works well, I can't share my camera when going 'live'. It seems this only works during private calls. Which I guess it my best option at the moment.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks I'll take a look at it. I actually think I've heard of this before. It sounds familiar.

Other suggestions are still welcome Angel

Hi, we are a engineering school so we have a free G Suite Account.
We use meet, so teacher can still give classes to our studient.
This solution is not free for the others https://gsuite.google.fr/intl/en/pricing.html

We use Skype for Business or MS Teams.

Both have been working well for us. We have had a few recommend Zoom as that is what others are using.

If you are wanting dedicated video conferencing with decent quality then Zoom is pretty good as that is what they are focused on. For collaboration, we like Teams as its more of a working together piece.

Cisco WebEx is also one that floats around a bit but the Google Hangout Meet looks good.

Ideally, you only need a few key people with an account eg those that are hosting the meetings.

We originally got the request everyone in the business needs video conferencing. Then we looked at it, it was only about 20% that actually needed it. The remaining 60% just join the meetings and the remaining 20% would never use it.

Sometimes it helps to just stop and take a breath. Re-assess in these mad times.

A quick update, we've published a second blog post with new resources. This time they are focused on cyber security.

Are there any other reports that might help out you and/or others out? Please don't hesitate to let us know. If we can help a lot of you with a specific report, we will certainly look into it!
