Remote Endpoint Security

Posture Assessment

AdobeStock_334681810.jpeg

As more organizations increase WORK-FROM-HOME

& REMOTE WORK,

Cybersecurity risks have exponentially increased.

Cybercrime continues to play havoc with remote workers who are not used to protecting their home devices, prompting the FBI to issue warnings and guidance, and security companies to step in to help protect workers.*

Are you aware?

Home Wi-Fi Security

Home networks probably have weaker protocols (WEP instead of WPA-2, for example). This allows hackers easier access to the network’s traffic.**

Phishing

Phishing attacks are widely recognized as the top cause of data breaches. Hackers can easily send seemingly legitimate, deceptive emails with malicious links and attachments. Once an employee clicks on this malicious link, a hacker is able to gain access to the employer’s device.**

Insecure Passwords

Simple passwords are incredibly easy for hackers to crack, and furthermore, if an insecure password is used across several platforms, it allows hackers to gain unauthorized access to multiple accounts in a very short period of time.**

Misleading Domains

Containing wording related to coronavirus, COVID-19, or other current worldwide or local concern, that lures a person into downloading of malware, including ransomware.***

Keyboard and Mouse

How it works:

#1

A light computer program will:

  • Collect the respective metrics on each in-scope endpoint

  • Create a current configuration data file

  • Copy it to a secured cloud repository

#3

#2

Nth Generation will:

 

  • Process all data files generated by the in-scope endpoints

  • Compile the data

  • Produce a consolidated report

  • Presentation of final report

The report includes:

  • An executive summary highlighting key findings

  • Additional summarized insights per collected metrics

  • Data graphics emphasizing weaknesses

  • Suggested high-level remediation best practices
