Enabling productivity and security for remote workers

With companies all around the world rapidly shifting to a remote workforce, one thing is certain: working from home is here to stay. So, how do you find solutions that support your remote employees at scale and keep business running as usual during — and after — this transition?

Challenges of going remote

The main challenge of supporting a remote workforce is finding solutions that can easily scale across your entire organization in the long-term. Remember — operational and security issues that are acceptable for 72 hours are not acceptable for 72 days.

In many cases, your legacy VPN servers will lack the robustness needed for mass remote usage. For example, your corporate VPN and firewall are probably not configured for a 4X surge. This will slow employees down and expose your company to unnecessary security risks.

Your employees will also be using a variety of personal devices during this time such as routers and laptops, opening up additional vectors for attacks. When coupled with the fact that home workers are typically an easy target for phishing and malware attacks, it’s pretty clear that you should rethink your security strategy sooner rather than later.
