Case Study: Secure Remote Working Solutions

Project Brief and Challenge

As we all know much of the world shifted to remote working in 2020. Unfortunately, cybercriminals upped their game at the same time, devising ways to use fears and anxieties to gain access to networks. Ransomware continues to be a daily threat, made worse by all businesses scrambling to meet work-from-home requirements, with extremely limited security. It is not just the pandemic that has altered our working practices. With the advances in technology, cybercriminals are now able to attack a wealth of devices. The reliance on non-traditional platforms and more, all offer inroads for cybercriminals, as we have seen from the attacks on large datacentres in the press, as well as on-premise estates.
