The term "Remote” has become the most popular topic since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. No matter it is enterprises, schools or even government departments, they have to continue their operations in "remote" mode to minimize the spread of Coronavirus. Undoubtedly, remote access technology is crucial for organizations to move most of their daily operations online.
As the demand for remote access has increased significantly in a short period of time, many remote solutions have also emerged. Among different solutions, CITIC Telecom CPC’s TrueCONNECT™ Express Private Network solution helps companies connect their branch offices in different regions through a secure network with IPSec encryption. Not only the operation efficiency can be improved during the pandemic, but also minimize the risk of business interruption. Supported by our remote access solution, all employees can connect to the company's internal network simultaneously and access internal resources in a secure environment to maintain business continuity.
Even though technology can help enterprises continue to operate or develop distance business, the hidden cybersecurity threats cannot be overlooked. It is undeniable the global trend of remote work is on the rise because of the pandemic. Some giant technology companies even allow employees to work from home permanently. Unfortunately, this sudden upsurge also attracted the attention of hackers.
Cybersecurity is Indispensable in Remote Work
Employees working remotely have to access internal information or data through the Internet, which may involve sensitive corporate data such as customer information and financial information. When these data are transmitted on a network that lacks security protection, the company may be vulnerable to cybercrime attacks.
It’s not surprising that some companies have implemented cybersecurity measures on private networks to safeguard their businesses. However, when remote work is in place that allows employees to connect to the internal network remotely, the importance of remote network security may be overlooked. According to the report, 60% of cyberattacks originated from insider threats, including employee negligence and using external devices without protective measures. If a company does not formulate a comprehensive network security management plan, the risk may be higher than ever as the amount and nature of information can be compromised on an unprecedented scale.
