Remote Workstations. Are they secure?

There’s a lot at risk. Your company. Your clients. Your reputation.

Remote workstations are going to be with us for the foreseeable future. While their presence is a necessity, they also pose high risk to your network.

The majority of home networks are not sufficiently securedCyber-criminals are well aware of this and are infiltrating company networks at alarming rates. 

When employees need to work from home, what can you do about unsecured remote workstations? And if employees need to use personal devices for work, what kind of threat does that pose to your network?

Cyberattacks are on the rise and cyber-criminals are on track for a banner year. Phishing attacks alone have increased 600% since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and are responsible for more than 90% of reported data breaches.

As of July, 2020, 16 billion records have been exposed, up roughly 400% from the same period in 2019.
