However, as Alan Hayward, Sales & Marketing Manager at SEH Technology explains in his article this month “Many traditional network infrastructures were not created to support rapidly developing digital ecosystems, and can no longer provide the levels of security and control required.” It’s safe to say that we cannot let our guard down when it comes to all things Covid just yet...
