HP Wolf Security is the comprehensive security solution for companies in the age of teleworking, and the pandemic has brought changes in many aspects of life and teleworking has been one of them.
There have been many employees who have resumed their activity from home and there are and will continue to be many who continue to do so, given that the health situation improves much more slowly than we would all like, but also because this formula has its advantages and to a greater or lesser extent, it is here to stay.
Teleworking has its advantages, yes: it hinders the problems derived from contagions and face-to-face contact, it allows the employee to improve their work-life balance by better managing their working hours, often with an increase in productivity that has been echoed by many studies … But teleworking also has its drawbacks, and one of the most severe and potentially damaging for the company, is related to security.
HP Wolf Security was born to meet this need from all possible sides, which are quite a few, although it is not a new phenomenon per se. In fact, those responsible for security and, in general, members of the IT team of any company, have already dealt with a similar trance before: the one known as BYOD. bring your own device, a company policy that allows and even encourages the use of personal devices in the workplace.
BYOD also had its own advantages and disadvantages, and among the latter, security stood out, as already anticipated. How safe are the personal devices of employees, as well as the practices they exercise, to manage employment information? Teleworking has increased the risk, since the employee’s framework of action is limited to his own personal environment and the unknowns regarding the safety of this are multiple.
From a security point of view, ask yourself:
- Are the device or devices connected to the Internet that the employee uses to work from home safe enough?
- Does the employee apply the scrupulous security practices that the company imposes in the workplace both in terms of access protection and data protection, exposure or any other type?
The truth is that they are questions that will not only tend to be answered in the negative, but they are incomplete questions to understand the real exposure situation that teleworking represents in certain contexts. Starting with the very network to which it is connected to work, and which is most likely being shared with other members of the family who in no case will pay the same interest to the safety of their environment.
The most important thing, however, is whether the employee, even the one who has the best disposition and knowledge to do everything right, also has the means provided by the company to ensure the work environment. The answer is, again and in all probability, negative. This is why comprehensive security solutions like HP Wolf Security are becoming increasingly popular with companies of all sizes.
