Keep Your Business Secure When Working Remotely

Posted on: April 15th, 2020

Many Australian businesses have made the change to working from home to ensure business continuity. There is an unprecedented number of people working from home, using personal devices, such as laptops, mobile phones and tablets, that are likely being used by others in the household. Find out how to keep your business secure when working remotely.

People are the weakest link in the security chain. Use a combination of Multi-Factor Authentication, email sanitation and end point protection to strengthen security when your employees are out of the office.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) increases security when logging into accounts. It requires the user to provider two or more methods to verify their identity. These authentication factors include something you know (a password), something you have (mobile phone or physical token), or something you are (fingerprint or iris scan). MFA protects accounts with additional authentication and is a great way to check that you are who you claim to be. Find out more about MFA here.

Email Sanitation

Email sanitation helps to secure and control inbound and outbound emails within your business. It helps to filter out unwanted emails. You can protect your people, data and brand from some of the most common security threats: phishing, malware, imposter email, spam and bulk mail.

End Point Protection

End point protection, also referred to as endpoint security, is a general term for cyber security services for network endpoints. These protect endpoints such as laptops, desktops, smartphones, tablets, servers and virtual environments. Endpoint protection services may include antivirus and antimalware, web filtering and more. Implementing end point protection helps businesses to keep their critical systems, sensitive data and employees safe from phishing, malware, ransomware and other cyber-attacks.
