Enabling hybrid-workforce efficiency


Hybrid workforce – The new normal?

Pew Research says that “roughly six-in-ten U.S. workers who say their jobs can mainly be done from home (59%) are working from home all or most of the time.”(1) Forbes reported that “by 2025, an estimated 70% of the workforce” will be working out of the office at least five days a month.(2)

Securing company data from anywhere (Office and remote workers)

Microsoft’s Digital Defense Report stated that the shift to hybrid and remote off-site working  “created new attack surfaces for cybercriminals to take advantage of, such as home devices being used for business purposes.”3   Here are a few of the high-impact security protocols that Ethical IT’s  ‘Managed IT Services for the Hybrid Workforce’ includes:

  • Enterprise-grade firewall (both physical and virtual endpoint-based) protecting the device regardless of location
  • Secure VPN  as an added layer of protection on non-company networks
  • DNS filtering to prevent malicious website activity and enforce company-acceptable use policies
  • Data encryption at rest and in transit – make your data unusable to criminals
  • Endpoint management to secure, update, and monitor devices from anywhere
  • Identity access management systems protecting credentialed access to network and cloud infrastructure
  • Enterprise-grade Antivirus to combat ransomware, malware, adware, etc
  • Email filtering for advanced threat protection and business continuity email services
  • Automated EndPoint remediation to detect and resolve issues in real-time, enabling continuity
  • Patch Management to enforce compliance with security standards and protect against malicious attack
  • Backup Management for data retention compliance and redundancy
