Not only do employees require the correct devices, but they also need to ensure their workers have the right support and solutions in order to carry out business continuity successfully.
Working alongside Cisco, Stone have come up with some home working solutions to help businesses and they’re employees face the challenges of working from home.
End User Device Management
You’ve supplied your staff with devices, but how do you keep a track of what they’re doing, and how those devices are performing? What happens if they have an issue?
Cisco Meraki Systems Manager
Centrally provision, monitor, and secure all endpoint devices within your organisation using Cisco Meraki Systems Manager. This system allows you to deploy MSI’s and access devices remotely while keeping your network in-sync without constantly changing devices, regardless of their location or connection type.
Remote Working Security
With staff now accessing your systems from locations across the UK and from devices you do and don’t control, the security you put between them and your information becomes both absolutely vital, and extremely difficult to manage.
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.
At your headquarters you’ve got the best anti-virus software and can assess all the traffic leaving and joining your network for anything malicious. However, with users now all over the country, accessing the internet through un-firewalled connections, you need a quick and easy-to-manage first line of defence.
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.
