You’ve probably heard the phrase “unprecedented times” over the last few weeks more than you ever have over your lifetime, and though the phrase can get old, it’s true. Companies around the world are facing situations that have never happened to them before: remote meetings, data security concerns and new technology challenges. For many businesses, working from home is starting to look like a long-term initiative, which may bring up concerns about data protection and company productivity. The experts at Benton Tech understand all of these issues, which is why we wanted to dive into how to best prepare your company for long-term work-from-home with services that will protect your data.
3 Services that Protect You While Working From Home
Having peace-of-mind that your data is secure is needed when your company is working from home. Read through the below services that could be a major help for your company, and feel free to reach out to our team if you have any questions.
- VPN: Virtual private networks (VPN) provide remote employees with a strong security barrier against hackers by creating a private network on a public connection. Using a VPN, employees’ online actions are protected, hidden and encrypted from anyone who would want to access it, even skilled cybercriminals. Using a VPN is a necessity when your staff is working from home because it keeps your data under lock and key.
- Mobile Security: With your staff working from home now, and possibly for the foreseeable future, having an airtight mobile security plan is crucial. If your staff is accessing important company information from their mobile device, this allows an opening for hackers to steal information. The experts at Benton Tech are able to connect devices to a company network to shield external threats from your data.
- VoIP: Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) allows phone calls to be transmitted through the internet. There are many pros to VoIP, but the three main advantages are that it is low-cost, efficient and safe for remote workers. All your employees need is an internet connection to be able to securely make calls from anywhere. When working from home, VoIP is the perfect solution to remote business communication problems.
