THE RISKS OF REMOTE WORKING DURING COVID-19

South African managed services provider protects customers’ virtual and remote ICT environments

Off-site employees are more prone to data breaches. In fact, 86% of business executives agreed data breaches are more likely to occur when employees are working out of the office.

Virtual work environments can compound attack surfaces for your network.

In the pursuit of business continuity and workforce wellbeing, many businesses are increasing their reliance on a remote network environment, in the light of COVID-19.  However, this shift has brought a spike in cybersecurity risk. Added to that, is an enormous lack of visibility. To see what’s happening from the home office edge to the core, to the cloud, you need complete understanding of user experience and business performance.  Equally, you need to know any new back door for attackers.

So how do you do it? And more importantly, how do you do it quickly?

AppCentrix’s “SmartICT” is already the eyes and ears of CIOs across 6,000 sites, in more than 45 data centres, processing over a million metrics a day.
