Cloud-based applications and environments present new challenges for IT teams, since remote workers and cloud services also require security.These challenges include: (1) secure connections so that users can access resources from anywhere; (2) protection for the device they use to make those connections; (3) keeping data safe on the move; and MORE.
The rise of mobile devices is only one of the challenges that IT teams face when it comes to securing their organization. The proliferation of cloud environments and the use of web applications means that connections are no longer just between internal users on your network — they’re between your users and some third party.
Your users and the resources they use are in multiple locations. As remote working becomes more common, IT teams are faced with ensuring that everyone has access to the info and devices they need to do their job (I’ll give you some tips) while being mindful of the protections they need. I know what you’re thinking — this sounds like a tough job.
Well, it can be. Securing your organization through these changing times will require secure connections, secure resources, and secure devices, wherever they are. But there are still plenty of ways that IT teams can make securing their organization simpler with just a little bit of effort. To get this done, IT teams need to start with access — no matter where it is. And they can do so by helping users understand how to use the secure access mechanisms that are available to them.
Your users are in multiple locations. IT teams are tasked with enabling everyone to work securely while living in distributed environments. The bottom line is that distributed environments can be tricky, but they don’t have to be. It all starts with access.
