How real-time and centralized monitoring, auditing, and user behavior analysis mitigates the risks of a remote workforce
Response to the coronavirus pandemic is mandating millions of people around the world to self-quarantine and work from home (WFH). This dramatic shift in work practice increases the risk to business continuity by forcing companies to switch to typically less secure remote network access in their aim to ensure that business systems are still available to WFH employees.
The risks of the WFH paradigm
In the attempt to ensure ongoing productivity, remote employees are often granted access to data and systems by using business applications that are not designed to grant the protection required by remote access. This renders the systems and files that contain regulated personal customer data, as well as sensitive business information – highly vulnerable to misuse and leakage.
CIOs, DPOs, Application Owners, and Risk Officers are faced with the challenge of how to mitigate this risk and ensure that remote access to data and applications is not abused by unwitting or malicious insiders and that this data will not be hijacked by hackers.
How SecuPi mitigates the risk?
