Is your VPN annoying you?
Sometimes layering on solutions and process to keep your data secure can add an extra few steps and annoy the end user.
We get it, we have the same MFA policy, password rotation policy, VPN requirements, etc. at PremierePC as you.
However, we know they are completely necessary to keep data safe and mitigate the ever present risk of the bad guys infiltrating your network.
So what now?
PremierePC continues to research and evolve our cybersecurity approach, with the NIST Framework guiding us, while keeping the end user in mind.
Let’s talk VPNs.
To remind you about what a VPN is, you can read our blog post here: VPN? What’s that?
In short, a VPN, or virtual private network, gives online privacy and anonymity by creating a private network from a public internet connection.
Why invest in data privacy?
A new study reveals that 57% of SMBs believe they won’t be targeted by online criminals, but almost 20% experienced an attack in the past year. These data breaches are costing more than ever before, with an average cost of a data breach for small businesses at $108,000.
We know it’s pretty necessary to maintain security while you compute.
However, connecting to a VPN tends to add several steps, and often needs support after your password is changed, a bios update, etc.
Here’s the good news
If you are in our RaaS (Router as a Service) program, you have an Enterprise Class Cisco/Meraki device. We already know these are wonderful for enhancing network security for the SMB.
Now included in this RaaS solution is the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client.
Essentially, a new way to connect to VPN at no additional cost.
