Stone Offer: Stone can manage your endpoint devices, irrespective of their geographical locations from our 24/7 Network operations centre.
Remote Working Security
Cisco Duo Security enables organisations to verify users’ identities and establish device trust before granting access to applications. By employing a zero-trust model, it decreases the attack surface and reduces risk.
Two-factor-authentication is used across many industries that require secure user authentication and device trust, beyond usernames and passwords. Its primary purpose is to make attackers’ life harder and reduce fraud risks.
Cisco Offer: With this offer, existing customers can exceed their user limit to support an increase in remote workers, and new customers can access a free licence.
Stone Offer: Stone will take the headache out of securing your data and devices using our two-factor authentication and trusted access solution. There are no agents to install, no tokens to manage, and from our 24/7 Networks operation centre we will confirm the identity of users and health of their devices before they connect to your applications.
Umbrella is a cloud security platform that provides the first line of defence against threats on the internet wherever users go. As a cloud-delivered service, Umbrella provides the visibility needed to protect internet access across all network devices, office locations, and remote workers.
In summary Cisco Umbrella provides:
- Fast and effective protection against threats such as Malware, Ransomware, Phishing & Command and Control call backs.
- Protection for users when both on and off your network.
- Enhanced visibility of your network.
- Assistance with identifying devices that may already be infected.
Cisco Offer: With this offer, existing customers can exceed their user limit to support an increase in remote workers, and new customers can access a free licence. To have the initial 14-day period extended to 90 days, please contact the Cisco sales team.
Stone Offer: Cisco Umbrella is priced on a per-user, per-month basis and is purchased on a 12-month pre-paid basis, or on a per-AP basis for guest Wi-Fi networks. There are multiple packages available to your organisation. Stone is also an Umbrella MSP, meaning we can provide you with a fully-managed service on a pay-monthly basis.
