There's a Lot at Risk

We care about your security and know that money is tight. We’ve put together a free business guide, “8 Security Threats for Remote Workstations,” that covers some of the most vulnerable areas. This guide will help you tighten security now.
Why does remote working pose a high risk to corporate networks?
Personal devices used for work
Company VPN’s insecurely used at home
Weak firewalls and outdated software
Increased phishing attacks
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
The majority of home networks are not secured. Cyber-criminals are well aware of this and are infiltrating company networks at alarming rates.
