Hybrid Work at Sydney’s Largest Sleep Disorder Clinic
With four sites, the Meredith Respiratory and Sleep Centre is Southern and Western Sydney’s biggest sleep problem clinic. Each patient will receive a unique treatment plan that includes a wide range of sleep testing (including a variety of sleep studies and oxygen studies) and professional guidance and assistance.
Meredith was a hybrid workplace before Covid-19 struck Australia, with around one-third of its employees working from home. The on-premises electronic patient medical record system could only be accessed via Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and a VPN over the cloud-based Office 365.
The fact that RDP comes pre-installed in Windows and was simple to set up made it the obvious choice for connecting to the corporate network. Furthermore, it was simple to use for non-technical users who had to input an IP address and password. In the end, RDP proved just as vulnerable to attack.
There Has Been an Increase in Ransomware Attacks.
Are you ready to go for COVID-19 or anything else?
Scalability and rapidity are key features of Perimeter 81’s cloud-based architecture. When COVID-19 struck Australia, Meredith swiftly transferred all of its workers to remote work, ensuring that the company’s network and its applications were not compromised.
Our IT plan wouldn’t be complete without Perimeter 81. There is no way Meredith could function without it in general. It has also improved the network’s agility. Our experience with ransomware turned out to be an unexpected gift. Without Perimeter 81, we would have been in a lot of difficulty during the Covid time.”
