Preparing for Coronavirus
The coronavirus outbreak is spreading at a rapid rate – traveling from China to approximately 40 countries across the world, including the United States, Italy, Iran, South Korea and now one presumptive case in Las Vegas. There’s been a huge impact on financial markets, travel, and other areas due to the rise in coronavirus cases, as well as the ability to contain the spread of the virus. Although cases in Nevada are limited so far, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended individuals across the country prepare for the virus to spread.
A Look at the Virus and Why Preparation is Crucial for Individuals and Businesses…
Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that bring a range of symptoms, including cough, sore throat, fever, and a runny nose. They’re spread through direct contact with infected individuals. Some well-known coronaviruses include MERS and SARS. The incubation period is still unknown, which means individuals may be contagious and spreading the virus without knowing. It’s important to keep in mind that in the event of infection or suspected infection, individuals must be quarantined to minimize the risk of the virus spreading rapidly throughout the city. These technologies can help in the event of an out break in Las Vegas.
- Virtual private networks (VPNs) that allow you to access your sensitive data via a secure, encrypted tunnel that keeps you safe against any sort of dangerous activity or traffic on public networks.
- Remote access solutions that give you anytime, anywhere access to your systems, applications, and data – meaning you’re able to access everything you’d be able to access at the office from any other location.
- VoIP phone systems that enable you to make and receive calls via the internet on your deskphone or your mobile device via a softphone feature – giving you the ability to stay in communication with colleagues, partners, and clients no matter where you’re located.
