ComSource: Information Technology Company (70 employees)

Conducted a detailed test and assessment of our network infrastructure, and its ability to handle additional remote workers, as we have transitioned close to 100% of our workforce to be remote. All employees have the tools and technology to stay in touch with their customers as they work remotely. We also penetration tested and are continuing to monitor our network security to ensure there are no disruptions to daily operations.
