Security When Users Leave

How secure are your laptops?  Laptops leave your network where they are without the protection of your firewall.  During a recent project a client wanted to restrict access to websites when users were away.   This way a laptop couldn’t leave the office, get a malware infection, and come back in.

Being proactive makes you secure, not a single product or several products.  Your IT team needs to look at security from all angles, find the weakest point and focus on that.  Security is only as strong as its weakest point.

In case you are curious, we did this in a short amount of time.  Now when users get blocked on a phishing site at the office they can’t go to Starbucks and hit the same site and get in.
