Unified Security for a Reconnecting World
It’s Time to Reconnect
Just as we’ve struggled to maintain connection in our personal lives, your business has had to weather the storm of a remote workforce. Nearly overnight, your company went from having a few offices with many employees, to having almost as many offices as employees. Providing remote access to corporate resources and data in a way that maintains the “on-site” user experience is critical to the continuity of your business – but doing so while maintaining security is a daunting task.
Simply allowing open access from home networks and external networks to critical business applications and resources is a security no-no. Different teams within your business require different access levels and present additional security challenges.
The stakes are high. One wrong click can bring your business grinding to a halt.
Reconnecting with Zero-Trust
Your users are in the crosshairs, and all it takes is one compromised password or endpoint device to turn a trusted VPN connection into an entry point for the bad guys. Not only do users need security now that they are off-network, but we must make sure they don’t introduce malware and other threats when they reconnect to the network, either by VPN or returning to the office.
User-focused approaches, like zero-trust, provide a practical means for reigning in the threat surface by assuming that every device and user, on-network or off, represents a security risk. Adopting a zero-trust strategy can help your organization develop a more modern cybersecurity strategy.
Simplify with Unified Security
With ransomware attacks on the rise, businesses have come to recognize that defending against these attacks with a piecemeal approach to protection is not practical. Unifying security helps defeat ransomware by bringing disconnected security layers together to improve efficacy and reduce the threat surface.
