With so many people working remotely and not sitting behind firewalls at corporate offices, networks and company information are at an all-time high risk for security threats like hackers, phishing, viruses, and scams.
Distributing the workload for firewalls and VPN servers is key— but since entire companies are working remotely and externally accessing the company network, most IT departments are not ready for the load that their on-site Firewall and VPN servers and processors will incur. Cloud-based firewall and VPN services with WiredIQ, Cato Networks, Perfect Packet, QOS Networks, TPx, AT&T, and AppGate (Cyxtera) are great solutions.
While most business-owned VPNs aren’t meant to service an entire organization, these providers have the infrastructure to handle the increase in capacity. With cloud-based security solutions you can get services that are scalable, high-performing, and with high availability.
Backup Data Storage
Many businesses that store all company data on a local server at their office need to find ways for employees to access this information. Intermedia, Rackspace, RapidScale, PhoenixNAP, TPx, TierPoint, and WiredIQ offer Backup-as-a-Service, or cloud data storage. These services, like SecuriSync or DropBox, allow businesses to give employees varying levels of permissions for accessing company resources, while also including recovery and backup for deleted files or previous versions.
Some companies have ordered more bandwidth to corporate locations because so many remote workers are logging into corporate networks at the same time. This is an opportunity to upgrade corporate office bandwidth, or move applications to the cloud or co-location centers. Here are some of the providers:
