Re-defining security for remote offices

With the increasing number of remote workforces connecting an organization via internet from anywhere, it has also evolved as one of the toughest areas to secure, we need a lot of appliances like firewall, NAC, VPN etc. to secure it and even then, it is a major threat to the organizations.

Generally, VPNs are used for such connection to be secured, but it has lot of issues, such as it allows all connected users to access entire network, or else they have to use multiple VPNs to get connected which complicates the process further. Another issue is, if any VPN users’ credentials are compromised, it raises huge threat based on access level.

Depending upon the connection type, number of employees and locations, we provide solutions based on SDP (Software defined perimeter) and SD-WAN, that suits each requirement.

Working remotely

Since the pandemic, working remotely has become much more widespread worldwide. Although many people are returning to the workplace now, many experts predict that even once the pandemic fades, remote working will remain prevalent across multiple sectors. There are many advantages of working remotely such as: work from anywhere anytime, less commute stress, increased productivity and performance etc. Also, remote work raises a vast array of issues and challenges for employees and employers, like we should be concerned about the security risks associated with the remote work environments. So it is essential to address and give serious consideration to remote workspace cybersecurity.

Work-from-home employees are at greater risk

Work-from-home employees are at much greater risk than those in offices. Since home connections are less secure, cybercriminals have an easier entry into the company network. The biggest security risks we facing are email scams, weakens security controls: without internet proxy, NAC, IDS and NGFW, client devices will now be sitting exposed on potentially unsecured networks amongst potentially compromised devices, malicious inisders or malicious housemates etc. Addressing these threats will not be easy. It will require a mixture of hard work, creativity, and new technology, alongside an openness to new ways of working and a willingness to embrace dynamic, proactive defense, instead of traditional rigid policies.

Software-defined perimeter

VPNs can be a key technology for facilitating remote work, but they have a number of drawbacks, such as exposing all connected users to access the entire network, or forcing them to use numerous VPNs to connect, further complicating the procedure and also as perimeters continue to fluctuate in response to the pandemic and beyond, organizations should reassess their infrastructure and security needs, especially if they are planning to adopt a zero-trust approach.

A software-defined perimeter is one way to implement zero-trust security. Users and devices must both be verified before they can connect to an organization’s network. An SDP approach can easily integrate with hybrid cloud deployments, and it’s useful for linking remote teams from any location.

No more security issues

We have solution for all the security risks associated with the remote work. Based on the locations and number of employees we provide SDP solution. SDP is really just another network security architecture. Zero-trust implementations with SDP allow for better defense. Most legacy attacks occur because users are connected to an environment where they can see the other connections that exist in that network. SDP focuses on hiding or concealing IT assets from the view of anyone on the network. No more security issues related to remote offices. We’ve come up with the greatest solution for you.
