Businesses Weren’t Prepared
When the pandemic struck and there were mass closures across the country, most businesses weren’t prepared. In house, networks are exponentially more secure. As the workforce moved home, however, many companies exposed themselves to a slew of security issues.
PC Matic conducted our own survey on COVID-19 work from home trends. Consequently, the trends found in those survey answers are pretty consistent with what tech professionals are seeing across the country. We’re seeing ransomware attacks increase, security measures decrease, and security health relax.
PC Matic fits perfectly into a healthy security plan. Our default-deny approach keeps machines safe from even new threats. In other words, even if it’s a new threat, we’ll block it.
As workers use their own devices, they reduce the security of their professional environments. Surfing the web, checking bank accounts, and visiting shopping sites can all expose your machine to security threats. As a result, you are also compromising your company’s information because you access it on the same device.
We believe in protecting a machine on a different level. Our Pro product can’t be uninstalled from the machine. This means a hacker in your personal machine won’t be able to uninstall the product and drop a malicious file.
Meanwhile, original projections thought that tech spending would go down. Due to the security concerns raised by remote work, security needs are on the rise. IT professionals have been dubbed essential workers, and are out there keeping systems safe as Americans continue to social distance.
PC Matic is also there. We’re working our hardest to provide IT professionals with the tools they need to bring remote work and IT management into this new normal.
