How To Setup A Secure Remote Access Solution
Posted on: 05-04-2020
According to Gartner, as more employees work from home due to COVID-19, some HR leaders note the lack of adequate technology infrastructure.
Establishing a VPN can ensure that telecommuters keep company data and systems safe.
Advancements in technology and telecommuting capabilities have paved the way for a future of remote work. While the coronavirus pandemic has forced many companies to realize their telecommuting capabilities, remote work has already risen by 400% in the past decade, indicating a clear shift in that direction prior to the crisis.
As more employees work outside the office, cybersecurity becomes a prominent concern, especially if users are working on public and personal networks. Some of the most common threats for remote workers include phishing attacks, distributed denial of service (DDoS), remote desktop account attacks, and Bluekeep exploits.
The importance of VPN
VPNs provide employees with secure access to an organization’s internal network and data, from anywhere. The tool provides a secure tunnel between an individual’s device and the service data center, encrypting the transmitted data.
However, using a VPN to gain access to these resources also comes with a responsibility to the company, particularly to uphold security standards expected by the organization. Most companies establish acceptable use policies for services and hardware in the office, but these standards become necessary outside the office as more people transition to working elsewhere.
