How to Enhance Cybersecurity in your company, even with remote work
Remote work may be here to stay, but reports of the demise of the office environment have likely been greatly exaggerated. Many employees will keep working from home even after local governments allow their organizations to reopen, but many will also return to their office, at least part-time.
Even prior to COVID-19 making WFH commonplace, data breaches were growing more frequent, attacks were becoming more sophisticated, and most successful data breaches were the result of weak or compromised passwords. Unfortunately, many organizations struggled with visibility into their employee password practices, and these issues compounded once employees began working remotely.
The best way to fix a data breach is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Since over 81% of successful data breaches are caused by stolen or compromised employee passwords, getting your password security under control is a big step towards preventing a security breach in the workplace.
How Keeper Security can help?
1. Keeper’s zero-knowledge password management and security platform provide organizations complete visibility into employee password practices, enabling IT administrators to monitor password use across the entire organization and enforce the use of strong, unique passwords, multi-factor authentication (2FA), role-based access control (RBAC), and other security policies.
2. Each employee receives a private, encrypted digital vault that they can access from any device using one master password — the only password the employee will ever have to remember. Keeper’s password manager generates strong, unique passwords for every account, and Keeper autofill feature KeeperFill automatically fills in login fields, so employees never have to reuse passwords or settle for weak passwords again.
3. IT administrators can fully customize employee permissions through fine-grained access controls based on their roles and responsibilities, as well as set up shared folders for individual departments, project teams, or any other group. For enhanced protection, organizations can deploy valuable add-ons such as Keeper Secure File Storage, which enables employees to securely store and share documents, images, videos, and even digital certificates and SSH keys; and BreachWatch™, which scans Dark Web forums and notifies organizations if any employee passwords have been compromised in a public data breach.
