The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has turned the world upside down.

Businesses have taken a huge hit because of the current worldwide lockdown, and companies have been pushing through by enabling employees to work remotely from home.

And even though giving employees remote access to the company’s network is helping to keep the business going during these unprecedented times, ensuring secure remote work is challenging. 

Remote work is not a new concept. Many companies let some employees work remotely at least part of the time. However, having most if not the entire workforce work from home can be a real challenge.

With the pace at which this occurred, most companies have had to make quick decisions on how to enable employees to work from home.

Securing their access to the organization’s network is of the utmost importance. Company networks are constantly monitored and properly firewalled to prevent any unauthorized access. However, while working from home, remote employees need an added level of security to ensure that the company data is protected at all costs.

During this pandemic, there are so many employees accessing the network remotely which makes it harder to track down each device and monitor all its activities. This is where a VPN can make your remote work more secure.

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) acts as a bridge between a company network and an employee’s device. Employees can securely access the cloud or physical servers. This link is completely secured and the data sent and received over it is encrypted to protect it from cybercriminals and snoops.

 

Choosing a VPN

Choosing a VPN for employees is extremely important for any company. However, to do so, you must take all the factors into account and make a well-informed decision.

There are a number of VPN software in the market that work extremely well and don’t compromise on speed and security.

VPNs come in all shapes and sizes. Some cater to consumers and some to organizations, and some do both.

When you require security, an enterprise grade VPN is the only option. There are a number of solutions for this, and we at d-PIT Solutions offer a number of these, based on your requirements.

Our partners in this area are Sophos, Ubiquiti Networks and pfSense.
