The VPN conundrum
BYOD? More like BYOV (Bring Your Own Virus)
Employees working on personal devices without a secure remote working solution poses a massive security risk for any company. A huge amount of trust is placed with individuals to make sure they’re working safely – at the very minimum, having anti-virus software on their chosen device.
In our recent Get Home Working Done survey, nearly a quarter of respondents (24.5%) said they were using a personal device to work from home and over half (58%) said they have saved work documents to personal devices – a major security concern putting company data at risk of breach.
The rise of SaaS app adoption
IT teams would normally block access to the SaaS apps outside of the company network (although many SaaS apps don’t have this functionality), but doing this during the current crisis would massively impact the productivity of workforce’s.
Taking advantage of the vulnerable
Reducing your attack surface
Using a solution such as Citrix Workspace is a great way to enable a secure, single sign-on to all files, apps (including those pesky SaaS apps) and desktops. This allows for centralised monitoring and control of all user interactions. When it comes to securing email, investing in software such as Mimecast can vastly reduce the number of malicious emails making it to inboxes. Providing threat awareness training to employees is also an essential step.
