In order to ensure a seamless transition to Work from Home for its 1400+ people, TO THE NEW immediately took to execute its contingency and operational frameworks even when a handful of cases were being reported in the country. As part of their readiness, a few teams were asked to work remotely for a period of one week, which allowed the company to improve its processes in advance and be better prepared for the future. Data and content security have remained the key priorities for TO THE NEW since its inception in 2008.
TO THE NEW’s IT team has ensured that it follows client confidentiality with all the security protocols built-in which are being followed with 100% compliance across the organization. The company has enabled its employees with high-speed bandwidth connections at their homes with remote access via VPN to ensure complete security while accessing the customer environment remotely. It also has visible and forensic watermarking in place to ensure watertight content security.
Commenting on their Business Continuity Plan, Deepak Mittal, CEO and Co-founder, TO THE NEW said, “The current scenario has pushed businesses across the globe to think digital in order to have a sustainable recovery.

The leadership team at TO THE NEW is continuously monitoring the situation as it evolves and will make adjustments to its policies accordingly as required.”, he further added.
