Remote work has become one of the biggest waves of change to affect the way we run our businesses. In the UK, around 4 million people now work remotely and fears of workers slacking off have been largely debunked. If anything, evidence suggest employees are even more productive at home.

Data loss is a serious risk that businesses face. A whopping 70 percent of employees and business owners experience some form of data loss every year.

To many people, Windows is the most recognisable operating system out there and one they grew up with. As well as being the most well-known and used desktop operating system, it also dominates the global OS market, beating the likes of Apple’s OS X, year after year.
