Having a business-grade firewall and the best data backup solution will be a major plus point for your company.

For the perimeter security of the organization, firewall solution still remains the foremost and obligatory. For hardcore business usage, a properly designed managed firewall should be used.

In the case of any kind of emergency, if your data is backed up off-site then you will have the data at all times and can use it also.

Endpoint Protection Or Traditional Anti-Virus?

The answer to this question is – Yes, the traditional anti-virus solutions are still in use, but Endpoint Security is more advanced in giving multiple security solutions.

Work From Home And Remote Workers

Pandemic attacked every business like a wrecking ball and an uncountable number of people started working from home. It became difficult for most of the organizations to shift the work from the office to home. Especially the data that was in the office systems was made a part of work from home positions. The data was supposed to be transferred from the office systems to either personal systems or take-home laptops, without any leaks.

This was a major issue as remote workers were using unsecured home networks and unprotected connections. Setting up VPN connections to access sensitive data and giving your employees information on how they can follow the safety procedures. The safety procedures include setting up strong passwords, guarding physical devices, secure access to sensitive data, and many more.
