Combating Security issues with Remote workforce using DaaS
While 86% of executives agree data breaches are more likely to occur with remote workers, only 35% of small business owners have a plan for keeping information secure off-site. -- Shredit, 2018
Remote workforce using DaaS solutions without proper governance in place can potentially lead to service delivery as well as security risks. With borderless teams transcending the boundaries of cities, states and often continents, you also have a ton of sensitive data moving outside the confines of the office and across a myriad of devices, often with questionable security arrangements. Even the largest of companies with multi-million dollar budgets face difficulties managing a remote workforce.
When employees work remotely, however, they often use personal devices and public Wi-Fi networks, which can expose their important data to several other vulnerabilities. This poses a major threat to data security.
Working with remote employees demands that businesses pay acute attention to the technology and security they use. Let’s take a look at the some of the data security challenges that enterprises need to be prepared for when working with borderless employees.
- Connectivity from Blacklisted IP addresses and that may spread malware
- VPN logins from non-business locations
- Users connecting and accessing data from untrusted devices
- Abuse of VPN accounts. Concurrent session of same user from different locations
- Reduced Security on BYOD and Mobile Devices
- Inadequate Backup and Recovery Systems
- GDPR Non-Compliance
- Remote Teams not following Data-Security Protocols
