New solution tackles both network and security assessments on personal devices as the world works from home.
April 29, 2020
Network Detective Work from Home (WFH) is critical because it allows remote employees to scan the home devices they’re using for security issues before they can connect to the corporate network, the company said.
RapidFire Tools’ Michael Mettel
“Many businesses were not prepared for the sudden shift of resources from offices to employee homes when the coronavirus hit, and that left many organizations vulnerable to data breaches and internal threats,” said Michael Mittel, president and GM, RapidFire Tools. “We created Network Detective WFH to address this very issue. [The solution] delivers self-service assessments that safely allow employees to work from home using their personal devices. Business owners can have peace of mind knowing that the integrity of their IT infrastructure remains in place. They can also save money and reduce IT workload by allowing employees to use home computers and networks.”
Network Detective Work from Home provides:
“Graded” PC risk scores and consolidated report cards to prevent compromises to the business. Areas include basic IT security protection, as well as antivirus and personal firewall configuration. It also includes third-party applications, scanning for potential threats.
Critical asset information for the IT helpdesk that captures computer and network data to make remote IT support a breeze.
A self-service portal that lets employees scan without the assistance of IT..
An option for automatic weekly re-scans and “grading” to ensure the integrity of the corporate infrastructure.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to upend businesses, companies are now in the middle of a massive, unplanned work-from-home experiment. One thing is certain, though. Ease of access for employees working from home and security are now more important than ever.
