How to keep your business secure when working remotely
Posted on: April 8th, 2020
Many Australian businesses have made the sudden change to remote working. This results in many employees working from home and using their personal laptops, PC devices, mobile phones and tablets for work. These may be used by others in the household and will likely lack online security and be vulnerable to cyber-attacks. But how do you keep your business secure when everyone is working remotely?
At onPlatinum ICT, we use a Three Point Protection Plan to protect against the weakest link in your security chain – your staff. This consists of Multi-Factor Authentication, Email Sanitation, and End Point Protection. Keep reading to find out how these measures can keep your business secure when working remotely.
Two-Factor or Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) strengthens access security by requiring two or more methods to verify your identity. These factors can include something you know – like a username and password, plus something that you have, like a smartphone application to approve your login authentication requests. MFA is a way to check that you are who you claim to be, and can be used for logging into online accounts, business applications (such as Office 356) or Remote Desktops.
Keep your business secure when working remotely with email sanitation. Email sanitation helps you secure and control inbound and outbound email. With email sanitation, you can help protect your people, data, and brand from today’s threats and common nuisances: imposter email, phishing, malware, spam and bulk mail.
End Point Protection
End point protection, or endpoint security, is a general term that describes cyber security services for network endpoints, like laptops, desktops, smartphones, tablets, servers and virtual environments. These services may include antivirus and antimalware, web filtering and more. Endpoint protection helps businesses keep critical systems, intellectual property, customer data, and employees safe from ransomware, phishing, malware and other cyber-attacks.
