Our world is facing a new challenge as we see the spread of COVID-19 everywhere.

When you are working remotely you have to make sure your team can access company resources in a secure fashion. Virtual Private Networks (VPN) can bu used to mask your location by routing the data you send and receive throw a secure virtual tunnel between your computer and the VPN server.
Two-factor Authentication (2FA) more generally known as multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an additional layer of security for your business. It helps by adding a second authentication layer on top the standard password approach.
While it’s hard to maintain healthy password security, not having it can be enormously expensive. Recent studies show that individuals are reusing passwords everywhere.
You may have a security system that protects your employees on your in-house network infrastructure. However the same protection is may not extend to the workers while they are working remotely.
It’s better that you inform your employees to update their passwords and optionally use a password manager to help them maintain strong security.
