We understand how important IT security is. At work all our computers are up to date with operating systems and patches.
If a stage 4 lockdown occurs, it means my staff have to work from home. Staff are now using their home computers to login and access our systems.
I know this comes with risk. How can I protect my business?
I am often asked this question or something similar like:
My staff prefer to user their own computers for work (known as BYOD).
How do I know their device is safe?
One answer is to use multifactor authentication. With the right tool you can protect your business by verifying the identity of the user and the health of their device before allowing connection to the application needed.
The financial controller is fantastic with numbers. In lockdown they are forced to work from home using their home computer which is mainly to run their own personal spreadsheets.
With the right multifactor authentication tool, the first step is authenticating the user is who they say they are and the next step is to make sure the computer they are using has a current and patched operating system.
If their computer is running an outdated operating system like windows 7 or XP you have the ability to not let them into the application until they update. Thus, protecting your business.
This is just one advantage of using a business grade multifactor authentication tool. Make sure to protect yourself and your business.
Managing Director - Tech Precision Pty Ltd
After 25+ years of success working in small and medium-sized companies I found myself looking for the next step in my career; and decided to venture out on my own. I wanted to combine my passion for helping others succeed and prosper, while at the same time build my own company that provides opportunities and rewards for a like-minded team to grow and develop.
I acquired TP in 2017 and I’m proud to say we have evolved into a highly respected Managed Service business remaining relevant to today’s needs. Providing the right technology, systems and support to our clients certainly empowers them with the tools to help achieve their goals – however technology is consistently evolving and often a little confusing to understand if you’re not technically minded. In my opinion the quality of technical service a company provides is just as important as the business relationship, trust and communication between business partners - this is what really feeds my passion. I take as much satisfaction in focusing on TP’s strategic direction and growth as I do supporting and helping our clients achieve their business goals.
