The Importance of Security in a Fully Remote World

The Importance of Security in a Fully Remote World

Protecting your business against potential cyber-threats is important for all businesses, regardless of industry, location, device, or connection. 

As the future of work continues to move online, this focus on security is more important than ever. As more and more industries are being asked to build a complete remote environment for employees, business is now being done over home ISPs, with unmanaged routers and printers, various Wi-Fi enabled devices and manipulated VPNs.

While you were moving your back-office functions remote, others saw an opportunity, and the number of sophisticated and targeted malware attacks have increased.

Traditional security measures cannot protect a fully remote staff without adaptation. This means we need to rethink our mindsets and approach to security right now.” 

The ServiceNow Security Operations (SecOps) Suite of Applications is the solution for prioritizing and mitigating security risks associated with our “new normal.”

SecOps is a one-stop shop for consolidating, filtering, and viewing priority security incidents, threats and vulnerabilities coming from multiple IT security toolsets. By implementing the suite to consolidate all security scanning tool results into one location, organizations can filter out noise and automatically prioritize security, vulnerability and/or threat issues from wherever they are in the world. 

With SecOps, security analysts and vulnerability managers can seamlessly automate their security tools and communicate with IT in a unified platform. Click To Tweet

Vulnerabilities, categorized according to group rules, can be addressed quickly using change requests and security incidents. Data is pulled from both internal and external sources, creating a holistic approach to system security.
