The Essential Guide to Securing Remote Access

In this guide, we’ll explore:

  • How the work-from-home explosion that started in early 2020 is driving the need to secure remote access
  • Specific types of threats targeting users, devices and remote access services
  • Security concerns with third-party providers and cloud access

Remote Access is the New Normal

Work anywhere, anytime - this adage had employees connecting to corporate networks via web and cloud apps, as well as remote access services like VPNs and RDP to do their jobs. And in early 2020, the need for remote access boomed as organizations around the world instituted work-from-home policies amid a global pandemic.

But remote access at massive scale brings with it new challenges. There are threats to users - like phishing, brute-force attacks and password-stealing malware. Devices are also targeted by exploit kits and known vulnerabilities affecting out-of-date software. VPN, RDP, third-party vendors, and cloud and web app access are also targets of malicious hackers.

In this updated guide, you’ll learn how a holistic approach to securing remote access through zero-trust security can help mitigate these attacks by ensuring only trusted users and secure devices can access your applications and services.

Ideal for security, compliance and risk management officers, IT administrators and other professionals concerned with information security, this guide is for any organization where remote access happens.
