How to Protect Your Hybrid Business

Building safety for a hybrid network of workers is critical. 2021 has only increased the threats we see from attackers. Remote work has only increased the access they have to company networks. While it may seem overwhelming to adapt at times, there are plenty of ways to protect yourself and your company. Check out how to protect your hybrid business:


How to Protect Your Hybrid Business

1. Make sure your security protection has cloud capabilities.

Being hybrid means sharing network access across multiple devices and locations. Cloud services are vital to running a hybrid business in 2021. Having security tools that support your cloud-based tools is non-negotiable. Be sure to invest in adaptive security that moves and grows with you. As a result, your team will stay productive and protected.

2. Build a security wall with multifactor authentication.

You know that annoying screen that pops up between log-ins, asking for security questions or a phone number to text? Stop skipping this tool! Multifactor authentication is one of the most utilized and available security features out there. Get into the habit of setting up your multifactor authentication steps. This will make it harder for hackers to infiltrate your network.

3. Train your team!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: a well-trained team makes security much easier. Keep your team informed! Create routine and mandatory security practices, and deliver relatable and important information about how security is impacted by their continued, conscious efforts. Their Wi-Fi, devices, and behaviors are all portals to your business. Be sure they are aware, educated, and participatory when it comes to security.
