Employees who have a remote desktop connection can potentially expose their workplace environment to data breaches, identity fraud and phishing schemes. This is the result of poor security practices including weak passwords, insecure home Wi-Fi connections and working from personal devices to name a few.
In essence, your remote employees can be the biggest threat to your organisation’s network security. As such, protecting your data from this ever-changing threat landscape starts with a robust firewall solution.
What is a Firewall?
A firewall is a security device (computer hardware or software) that can assist to protect your network. It works by filtering traffic and blocking outsiders from gaining unauthorised access to the data on your PC. Its main purpose is to allow non-threatening traffic in and to keep dangerous traffic out. Overall, it represents the first line of defense for home network security and will assist to block malicious software from infecting computers.
Firewalls provide various levels of protection. As such, it’s important to identify how much protection an organisation will require in order to keep computers as well as data safe and secure.
Firewall Solutions to Protect your Data.
At Techstream Solutions, our System’s Engineers are experts in Cyber Security. We have the knowledge and expertise to identify any security weaknesses. Furthermore, we will develop, deploy and support a comprehensive defense solution to significantly mitigate the risk of attack.
Our System Engineers are Sophos Certified Architects. We have the knowledge and expertise to implement award-winning next generation Sophos XG Firewalls.
The Sophos XG Firewall offers many innovative features. It’s the only network security solution that can fully identify the source of an infection on your network. Best of all, it will automatically limit access to other network resources in response. A firewall solution that will stop attacks even before they start!
For example, below is a diagram that shows how a Sophos XG firewall has been effectively implemented within a remote working environment.
Sophos XG firewall is installed in the main office and Sophos RED devices are installed on all remote offices. As a result, this configuration will tunnel all traffic via the internet to create one local area network (LAN) across your business. When an employee logs in remotely, they will safely be connected via the Red tunnel, always through the local area network rather than individual network connections. All internet access, filtering and monitoring is secured via the main office Firewall. This is one of many firewall solutions we can offer to provide a secure environment for your workplace and its employees.
