How To Secure Your Work at Home

As remote working and disparate workforces become increasingly commonplace across enterprises in all industries, it is critical to have the appropriate security in place to protect people wherever they work.

Hybrid workers require the same capabilities at home that they are accustomed to having in the corporate office. However, the home office is less likely to have enterprise-grade security, threat intelligence, and management tools to protect users’ data, devices, and internet activity.

Remote workers’ networks are accessed by the laptops and mobile phones they use to work and other personal devices across the home. This could include digital assistants, gaming consoles, printers, wearables, and any other machine that other people in the home use to connect to the internet. These devices widen attack surfaces for cyber criminals as they may not have enterprise-grade protection, such as antivirus and anti-malware.

Linksys HomeWRK | Secured by Fortinet is a networking solution with enterprise-grade security for work-from-home employees. It delivers a secure and reliable network connection for both corporate and personal needs in one integrated unit. Featuring the latest Wi-Fi 6 with mesh technologies, Linksys HomeWRK enables organizations to provide their remote workers with a reliable whole-home network. It also prioritizes traffic for corporate communications and collaboration applications.
