Free Software For Working Remotely - Stay productive, stay safe
Business are rapidly moving to a remote workforce to keep their employees safe during the current COVID-19 situation. But as organizations are adapting to this new arrangement, so, too, are malicious hackers who see this as a prime opportunity to capitalize on weakened network security. With more out-of-office access points being used, an increased need for remote data access, and even a wide scale usage of personal devices, remote work certainly has its own challenges that need to be overcome.
