Remote working is not without risks. Cyber-attacks, ransomware and other security issues keep IT admins awake at night with worry. Yes, remote working is a good thing for most. The question is, how to protect ourselves when using this kind of setup?
The entire process is not really complicated, according to TSplus, which helps with the transition from the traditional work setup to remote working.
Employees are the ones working from home. Most are not security experts. There are cyber-criminals who take advantage of the situation. It is up to corporate IT admins to make sure employees have the tools they need and a secure way to access them.
Password security is a first line of defense. Tools like two-factor authentication can take that to the next level.
With limited control over the devices being used outside the office, it is important that corporate networks are secure before, during and after login. TSplus’ has an innovative solution, TSplus Advanced Security. It provides the tools necessary to operate a remote-access environment safely.
