White Paper: Seven Strategies to Securely Enable Remote Workers

Given the uncertainty a widespread health crisis can bring, infectious disease specialists at the CDC and elsewhere have advised organizations to prepare for extended social distancing and quarantine periods as part of their business continuity and disaster recovery planning.

For businesses and other organizations, this preparedness should include leveraging a Zero Trust security architecture and the right tools to ensure workers can securely access company systems, data, and productivity suites with minimal disruption to workflows

Zero Trust strategies assure that effective security controls are in place to govern every single user, device, application and system interacting with an organization’s IT environment.

Maintaining a seamless workflow for remote workers impacted by a pandemic or other wide-scale event will require IT and cybersecurity teams to implement Zero Trust strategies to securely support the collaboration and productivity tools that assure continuity for critical business operations.

Laying the groundwork to securely enable a remote workforce could make or break a company's ability to sustain business operations should a crisis require large populations to remain at home.

This white paper provides insights on key areas of focus and advice for organizations when considering the best solution options to support a secure remote-only workforce.
