Secure your remote workforce.
Many companies are dealing with a new reality: a workforce that is almost completely working from home. These workers need access to applications and files that sit inside the enterprise network. Barracuda CloudGen Firewall (CGF) can ensure that your employees have what they need to securely access corporate resources. Barracuda offers multiple remote access options to provide the best user experience depending on the user’s device.
Barracuda CloudGen Firewall remote access applications are easy to deploy to users and adopt into a workflow.
Protect your business from risks created by distracted employee email behavior.
Many employees who are now working from home for the first time are facing a variety of distractions. This time of distraction creates a perfect storm for email scammers to attack.
There are several active COVID-19 scams that involve ransomware, phishing, and other types of attacks. The success of these attacks is based on the victim believing that the email is a legitimate status update from the company or from world health care leaders. Email attacks of this kind are more successful when employees are distracted, distressed, multitasking, and processing more email messages than normal.
Protect your data as new risks arise from remote work.
Moving your workforce out of the corporate office can bring big changes and potential risks in how they save their data. It is important that your IT team plan these changes and review them with your employees. Workers who normally save to a network drive on a file server will now either need to be connected via VPN or be using something like Microsoft OneDrive for Business.
If you are using Office 365 you should be following Microsoft best practices by backing up with Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup, so that your IT team can ensure that business data can be protected according to corporate policy. .
