COVID-19 has spread across the globe and has forced organizations to embrace work from home culture. We too were faced with a similar situation last weekend when the authorities insisted IT organizations allow employees to work from home. We are a team who are accustomed to working at our office premises, and hence several factors ran in our mind while considering this crucial choice.
During the days before the pandemic escalated, our team was excited and was planning a crucial release of the latest SanerNow version – 220.127.116.11. Since this is an important release, the team had been working tirelessly for months, to roll it out on time.
Of the many factors, our primary concern was the digital security of our team, especially with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) scenario.
If we enabled work from home, it was crucial for us to:
- Ensure that the endpoints do not connect to any public Wi-Fi
- Restrict users from leaking confidential corporate data from their devices
- Monitor and prevent the installation of any malicious/unwanted software like torrents, gaming software etc.
- Assist the team with software requirements, ensure only approved software assets are installed
- Carry out cyber hygiene measures like continuous vulnerability assessment and patch management to secure systems from new threats
We, of course, use SanerNow to protect our endpoints from being attacked. It was only an extension of an idea to deploy SanerNow on those employee personal devices that are going to be newly connected to our network.
