4 Reasons Your Remote Office Should Rely on UK-Based IT Security

BY Rebecca | 9 October, 2017 | no comments

Plenty of start-ups that have their roots in the UK choose to move to a foreign country until their cash flow is healthy. It only makes sense. Many modern businesses can work remotely with UK companies from anywhere in the world, and the cost of living and working in most foreign countries is far lower than in the UK.

However, one thing you shouldn’t change is the location of your IT security provider. It might seem odd to have them operating in the UK while you’re on the other side of the globe, but here are just four compelling advantages of keeping your IT security based in the UK.

  1. The Convenience of Remote Work

As mentioned above, one reason why moving abroad is becoming more popular is the increase in cloud computing and remote work in general. The same benefits apply for IT support. You can have a professional in the UK monitor your network and provide support regardless of where you are in the world.

  1. Knowledge of Applicable Laws

You might be gathering momentum in Berlin or Bangkok, but your target clients are probably still based in the UK. As such, it only makes sense to rely on an IT support provider with knowledge of UK laws and guidelines. If your support provider isn’t clued up, they may put your enterprise at risk before it has even found its feet.

  1. High Standards of Service

UK-based IT support providers will generally uphold very strong standards of service. This is partly because the competition is so fierce, but it’s also worth keeping in mind that they will have more rigorous guidelines to follow than professionals in many other countries.

  1. No Language Barrier

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, UK-based IT support won’t present any language barrier. It can be tough to make yourself understood at the best of times when you’re speaking to someone whose mother tongue differs from your own – when trying to discuss the ins and outs of your IT network, it can be downright impossible.
