Is my company network secure while using teleworkers?
Updated: May 24
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a new requirement for businesses to telework (working from home and remotely accessing the corporate network). Unfortunately, not everyone can or find it necessary to secure their home environment as well as the company does. Moreover, many of the home network population are still using the WiFi password that came with their router. Why? You may ask. Most home internet environments are just for movie streaming, email, internet browsing, and shopping. Yes, one should secure these networks while executing these tasks as well. Personal Identifiable Information (PII) is one of the biggest thefts currently. Still, households are deploying home networks with minimum security. However, with the pandemic home network usage has acquired a new requirement..."Teleworking."
It is not economically feasible for a company to ensure the security of every employee's home network. However, the company can take steps to prevent such a breach from causing any significant damage. To ensure your company's network is secure and stays secure, I suggest executing a penetration test from both the outside of your company network and inside. An employee connecting to the company network via a virtual private network (VPN) connection has already bypassed your external preventions (i.e., firewalls). Therefore, you need to know what type of damage can befold you if this occurs. A lateral penetration test will answer this question.
We at eSabers understand the current demands imposed by the pandemic and has partnered with Horizon3.ai to provide robust and accurate insider threat penetration testing. Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), we can execute a red team insider threat lateral penetration test and provide you with a detailed report of your company's network vulnerabilities and how to fix them quickly. We also offer continual vulnerability pen testing to ensure your network is always at its most secure.
