LANCOM Systems - remote working security in the times of Corona!

Willow here - working hard from my kitchen!

Per one of my recent blogs, 88% of Australian businesses are expected to send their employees to work from home.

That's great to stop the spread of the virus - but not so good from a security perspective!

What many of your customers may not know is that opening their network to remote workers is not safe if there are no security measures in place - and this doesn't happen by default.

A simple sales conversation starter

SALESPERSON:  Ms Customer - are you one of the 88% of Australian businesses that are relying on remote working in these difficult times?


SALESPERSON: Specifically - what measures have you implemented to secure your network given all this remote access?

CUSTOMER: Huh?!!!!!

You need your customers to understand how important it is to keep their network secure during these uncertain times and that it can have a dire impact on their business if they are not prepared.

What solutions can we offer?
