IT Security for Employees – The 2 Solutions You NeedIT Resource
Navigating all the different IT security solutions on the market can be overwhelming. There are new risks and cyber threats popping up every day – making it vital for organizations to revisit and improve their data protection methods. When considering what security solutions to implement, it’s crucial to take the time to assess where you’re most vulnerable so you know what areas need the most improvements. Hackers will always choose the path of least resistance, which is often your employees. While employees can be your biggest asset, they can also be your biggest risk. Regardless of size or industry, two solutions that every organization should be using for every employee are security training and multi-factor authentication.
Protecting an employee’s information and credentials should begin with a multi-factor authentication (MFA) system for accessing logins. MFA works as an added layer of protection to verify that people are who they say they are when logging into a system. We partner with Duo to provide MFA to organizations who are looking for an effective and easy to use solution. Duo not only reduces security and compliance risk, but also improves end user productivity and experience. With the growing number of remote workers, it’s important that company data is protected from anywhere, on any device. Duo provides seamless and secure access to cloud and on-premise applications and servers without a VPN. Duo’s remote access and single sign-on integrates with remote access gateway and VPN providers including Oracle, Cisco, Citrix, Barracuda, and more.
