The COVID-19 virus is having an unprecedented impact on businesses with many people finding themselves having to work from home.
To some businesses, who already have some remote and mobile workers, this is just an extension of their existing network infrastructure to support the additional staff who will require remote access to the systems and data previously accessed through local network connections.
To other companies, where currently all of their staff are office based, this will be a totally new challenge.
- How to provide secure remote access for their staff to their systems and data?
- How to ensure devices are not compromised, giving hackers access to corporate systems?
- How to protect corporate data at rest on the device, in transit and on corporate systems, both in the cloud and on prem?
This will include configuring secure VPNs and will require a change of culture including introducing new methods for validating identity e.g. biometrics or mandatory complex passwords, Multifactor Authentication (MFA), certificate-based authentication, etc.
Servasure have been a virtual company for many years, since 2003. Our staff work from home but have full secure access to all of our systems. We therefore have many years of experience in working from home.
We are a MobileIron partner so can assist you and your company to plan and implement MobileIron UEM to enable your workforce to work from home and ensure your corporate data and systems are not compromised. We can help you through the transition from an office based to a virtual company, to allow you to exploit benefits, both financial e.g. reduction in the overheads of premises and their associated costs and personal e.g. no more daily commute to and from the office.
We appreciate in most cases this will be a short-term transition until the threat of COVID-19 passes, however, it will give you, your company and your staff long term flexibility once normality returns.
