‘ What Happens When Your Laptop Gets Stolen’ 

Let’s set the scene, our client – we’ll call him Fred, is on the train working – he can do this because he has the benefit of our Managed Workplace offering which allows him to work anywhere.  Fred gets a bit peckish and goes to the shop to buy some crisps, he leaves his laptop on the table.

As the train is pulling into a station, he returns to his seat BUT you guessed it! no laptop.

So what happens next?

  • Well, Fred’s probably going to panic a little, he’s human after all. But then
  • Fred calls the Yobah TechOps Desk
  • The device is instantly locked and a remote wipe is instigated
  • Fred gets home and logs into Office 365 from a personal laptop, he can continue working on the same project he was working on during the train journey. No updates are lost.
  • Fred’s data (and that of his employer) is still 100% secure on the personal device he’s now using due to the security policies we apply as standard.
  • Yobah ship out a new laptop direct from the supplier, pre-configured using Microsoft Whiteglove
  • Fred logs into the new device and is good to go. No-fuss, no interruption and 100% secure.
  • On his next train journey, Fred ensures he’s got snacks with him.
