Following the pandemic and the need for clients to ensure they control the devices used by their staff when working from home, Argon developed “DR in a box” whereby Argon retain a stock of suitable computing devices together with relevant accessories to be deployed in the event of a disaster scenario either to the users home or to alternative premises. These devices are deployed imaged to meet the client requirement and incorporating the cyber security protocols required by the client. This solution provides a Business Continuity solution for businesses who have less focus on the premises rather the data holding assets and their security.
