Remote working is not without risks. Cyber-attacks, ransomware and other security issues still keep IT admins awake at night with worry. Yes, remote working is a good thing for most. The question is, how do we protect ourselves when using this kind of setup?
Understanding the Concept of Work from Home
The entire process is not really complicated. This is a thing that we actually do every day. We access the internet to get news or information about what is happening in our surroundings. There are applications that make this easy, including SaaS applications and cloud office suites. This is where TSplus can help as the transition from the traditional work setup to remote working continues.
Where Does It Start?
Employees are the ones working from home. Most are not security experts. There are still cyber-criminals who are taking advantage of the situation. It is up to corporate IT admins to make sure that employees have the tools they need and a secure way to access them.
Password security is the first line of defense. Tools like two-factor authentication can take that to the next level.
Securing the Back-End
With often limited control over the devices being used outside the office, it is especially important that corporate networks are secure before, during and after login. TSplus has an innovative solution in TSplus Advanced Security. It provides the tools that are absolutely necessary to operate a remote-access environment safely. It can block simple brute-force attacks without any intervention from the Admin. Advanced security can be used to limit hours of server availability, as well as limit logins based on geography. During login, it can monitor for incorrect attempts, take action and inform the administrator.
