We’re in a moment of rapid change for our IT environments. As companies shift from working in an office within their controlled network to working from home, many are finding that the architectures they have in place aren’t ready for the scalability and security challenges of a decentralized workforce. There are three prominent scenarios created by this shift that have an impact on security posture: 

  1. Unprotected devices are being used for work. Some of you may be asking your employees to use their personal laptops for work at home. Others are issuing new managed laptops that need to ramp up with existing endpoint security.  
  2. The internet is accessed directly, without a VPN. Most VPN deployments aren’t ready to scale to an entire workforce routing traffic through them. Slowdowns and outages can cause users to turn off their VPN. Some may not be licensed for the entire workforce. In each scenario, devices will access the internet directly without the defense in depth of your managed network. 
  3. Data going to cloud services no longer routes through the network. There has been a massive increase in the use of cloud-based tools to support meetings and collaboration for decentralized teams. With direct internet accesses, data sent to the cloud falls out of your visibility and becomes vulnerable. Sharing within the cloud and to external parties also falls outside of four visibility and control. or many, existing security investments can be slightly augmented or scaled to cover these use cases. Others may need to quickly add capabilities. Let’s discuss how:  Visit@- mcafee.com/activate |mcafee.com/activate |
