Unprecedented numbers of people are working from home at the direction of their governments to help slow the spread of Coronavirus. To cope with the current global new reality even companies that resisted remote working practices in the past have had no choice but to change. The speed with which this shift has happened means that many organizations are not prepared and their cyber defenses are not set up to accommodate secure remote working on such a scale. Workers are accessing data remotely across public networks without using appropriate encryption, VPNs, Firewalls and other properly configured cybersecurity tools. Widespread use of public messengers, video conferencing and other communication tools further complicates the situation and exposes numerous vulnerabilities for hackers to exploit. Yet for many businesses, especially smaller ones, implementing cybersecurity solutions can seem overly daunting, complex, time-consuming and costly.
Infotecs has launched a special program to help companies through these challenging times by offering free trials and making their products available in the Cloud through Amazon Web Services and Azure to get people up and running quickly with minimal cost and effort. The Infotecs software-based solutions are designed to achieve major security improvements without disruption, effectively overlaying security onto legacy systems without changing the underlying network structure. Furthermore, unlike other encryption solutions that can slow down processes and make working difficult and inefficient, Infotecs’ low latency, high-speed encryption provides continuous reliable connectivity even for bandwidth-hungry video and voice communication applications that are so crucial to keep businesses operating while workers are remote.
