Hybrid working causes problems for small businesses looking to protect staff and systems against cybercrime. According to the Microsoft New Future of Work Report, 80% of security professionals surveyed said they had encountered increased security threats since the shift to remote work began. Learn how to protect your clients with a proven vendor stack to support their security and productivity in the workplace.
Protecting Your Endpoints
As the workforce continues to work remotely, the number of wireless devices being used by employees has increased the number of vulnerable endpoints in a given organisation. Every laptop, every tablet, and every smartphone is a potential threat to security. It’s been reported that over 70% of breaches originate at an endpoint. Now is the time to make sure that your clients’ end users are protected.
While traditional anti-virus software solutions merely try to prevent attacks, modern Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions actively discover and remediate threats across devices, desktops, and servers, and are a great way to protect your clients against fileless malware, document and browser exploits, malicious scripts, and credential scraping. Safeguard end users with automation, machine learning, and behaviour monitoring EDR software.
Endpoint Protection with SentinelOne
SentinelOne delivers autonomous endpoint protection through a single agent that successfully prevents, detects, and responds to attacks across all major vendors. The SentinelOne platform saves time by applying AI to automatically eliminate threats in real time for both on-premise and cloud environments. SentinelOne is the only solution to provide full visibility across networks directly from the endpoint.
Addressing Communication Concerns
Malicious emails are the greatest cyber threat an organisation can face, and phishing, ransomware, and other forms of malware have become increasingly difficult to spot. A recent Proofpoint study shows that over 96% of phishing and malware attacks originate via email. Everybody thinks that they’ll spot a threatening email, but it only takes one slip up to put the security and financial stability of your end user’s business in jeopardy.
Most email providers have some form of native security measures in place. Whilst this inbuilt security provides some protection, it is not sufficient to defend against advanced cyberattacks. IBM has ranked phishing as the second most expensive cause of data breaches, costing breached businesses an average of $4.65 million. By building your own cloud tech stack, you can protect your clients’ cybersecurity with the most effective tools on the market.

Building Safety into Remote Work
When it comes to working remotely, the best way to protect your online accounts is with multi-factor authentication (MFA), which brings an additional layer of security to by requiring end users to prove their identity either biometrically or with an external device.
Whilst MFA ensures that only the right people can access a client’s digital workspace, implementing a virtual private network (VPN) enables the user to access private resources securely, no matter where they are working. Your clients’ teams will be able to work using private or public Wi-Fi safely, without running the risk of any cybercriminals joining the ride.
