Remote access has now become a target ground for modern hacking and online theft. As much as it can be helpful for your business continuity and stability, it can also take a toll on your network’s security and protection. That’s why businesses that want to secure remote access technology needs to implement an effective remote access strategy and guidelines to make sure that their network is safe from harmful security threats and risks.
Invest in a Secure Remote Access Software - One way of securing remote access is by investing in a secure remote access software. Choose the one that uses solid encryption methods to ensure that all sensitive interaction between remote and local users isn’t recorded unwillingly. This will prevent any of your confidential and sensitive information from being leaked and exposed. Also, try to ensure that the remote access software you’ll choose will require any local user to provide the right login credentials first before connecting to a remote computer. This will ensure that all remote connections made are authorized and authenticated.
Ensure All Endpoint Devices are Safe and Secure - Make sure that all of your employees strictly follow your company’s security guidelines when using their endpoint devices to connect to your corporate network. This will ensure that their devices are secured from malware, viruses, and security threats. Also, require them to have their personal devices checked regularly so they are free of security flaws and defects. This can save your network from being exposed to a bunch of security threats outside of its walls and protection.
Limit your employees’ access - Remote access should be a privilege. Those employees who need to access their office desktops but can’t go there physically are the only ones who should be allowed to use your company’s remote access software. System administrators should also use remote access when they are monitoring, assessing, and managing a bunch of remote devices at once. Otherwise, their administrative access should also be disabled temporarily.
