Sophos, a UK company primarily focused on providing security software in conjunction with TechEconomy.ng has announced December 7, 2021 (as the date for the webinar on ‘Securing Remote Working’.

Citing the effect of COVId-19 pandemic on businesses, the experts in security software said: “Coronavirus has brought remote working to the top of everyone’s mind, with many organizations already enabling or exploring it.”

According to the Velocity Smart Technology Market Research Report 2021, 70 per cent of remote workers said they had experienced IT problems during the pandemic, and 54 per cent had to wait up to three hours for the issue to be resolved.

Meanwhile, CISO’s Benchmark Report 2020, says organizations are struggling to manage remote workers’ use of phones and other mobile devices.

According to the organisers, the webinar would focus on providing secure connectivity for people working at home, on-site, and in the office, including VPN and ZTNA technologies; securing the devices that make those connections against ransomware and other advanced threats; and protecting the data and workloads your users need to access, whether stored on-premises, in the cloud or both.

Speaking ahead of the webinar, the Editor at TechEconomy.ng, Peter Oluka, said with remote working now the new normal, it would be important to start simplifying cybersecurity management for dispersed IT teams at the same time.

He said discovering the tips to help users and organisations stay secure while protecting everyone’s physical health, had become imperative.
“Remote working is not just people who are in multiple locations – the resources they use are as well,” Oluka said.
