Securing Remote Workers

Malicious actors prey upon remote users via their laptops and other portable computing devices, and via the untrusted networks and programs these users connect to, particularly when outside of an organization’s private network.

According to 451 Research, 63 percent of global organizations indicate they have moderate to no visibility over all their distributed network assets. How can you patch the next vulnerability in your network computing infrastructure when you have no way to identify all the legitimate endpoints (including employees’ personal devices) trying to connect to your network? And how do you distribute central security policy to those devices without first reconfiguring all of your physical network equipment and/or hairpinning traffic back through your core network for policy enforcement?

With the OPAQ Cloud, you can simply provide always-on, next-generation protection within days, without the costly backhaul that can toll your central private network. Security delivered from the cloud facilitates advanced remote security, providing a remote secure controller from which consistent network policy can be rapidly enforced on distributed endpoints.
