Tony Buserri, CEO at Route1.com, and Cyber Gal Cherise Gutierrez ofCyberThreatBeGone.com, checked in to discuss the growing problem of data breaches caused by granting employees remote access to their workplace using BYOD initiatives and how Route1.com and their product MobiKEY can stop it.
WATCH the video here:
Employees, remote workers and contractors demand access to their workspace from anywhere, from any device. Unlocking these productivity gains can dramatically increase the organization’s exposure to security threats and the risk of network breaches. At the same time IT professionals are being asked to support mobility and BYOD initiatives on tightening budgets.
The MobiKEY Solution
High Assurance Mobile Access to your Workplace
At Route1 we believe that in designing an answer to the secure mobility challenge, the technology you deploy should:
Axioms To Build An Answer By:
1 - Authenticate. Prior to providing any access or entitlements to an employee, mobile worker or contractor, they first must be authenticated by not less than two factors – “something you have” and “something you know”. Preferably, the “something you have” is discrete and separate from the device you are using for the remote access data session.
2 - Secure the fortress. Accessing data when you are remote does not mean that data needs to be pulled to (or transferred to) the remote device you are working from. Data is best protected, and the network secured, when there is no movement of the data outside of the enterprise network.
3 - Reduce costs. Many will have you believe that better data security increases your IT cost structure, which is simply not true.
