Preventing Corporate Data Loss During Disruptive Transport Strike

AEP Networks : 05 October, 2010  (Technical Article)
AEP Networks comments on the requirement for data loss protection with many workers operating from home during London underground strike
Hundreds of thousands of workers will be looking to work from home today to miss out on the travel chaos caused by The London Tube strike. Mark Darvill, director at the provider of trusted security firm AEP Networks comments about how organisations can safely enable their staff to access confidential data remotely:

"The Tube strike not only disrupts journeys to and from work, it drives employees to take vast amounts of confidential data out of the office. Briefcases around the capital will become data-loss ticking time bombs, as employees look to escape the madness of the commute. Although working from home is an accepted practice, many banks and government organisations have shied away from letting staff access confidential data outside of the office for fear of data loss or tampering.

"While concern over data tampering is well placed, the productivity vs.. security debate is dying a slow death. Any organisation, regardless of the sensitivity of the data, can securely enable their employees to work remotely. It comes down to three things, protecting the connection, the device and data.

"Organisations can give their staff the flexibility to work from home with their own devices. By checking the configuration and security status of devices and approving it digitally, organisations can become device liberal. A high grade, secure tunnel over the internet will connect employees from their sofa to the corporate network. And providing security checks on the device itself will ensure that malware doesn't sneak onto the network.

"By implementing security procedures that give staff the ability to safely access corporate networks from their own laptop or PC, businesses can ensure that they don't grind to a halt when the tubes do."

AEP Networks has developed the highest grade security technologies to protect critical networks for Government, military and enterprise organisations.
