A specialized financial solutions company had an immediate need to get its employees working from home. This work from home paradigm means people are combining aspects of their personal technology with workforce tools on a pronounced basis. Which raises new questions about the security of the tools their employees use to connect to vital workplace systems and data. The rapid shift in their workforce expanded the attack surface of their company in novel ways.
With Metabase Q the company was able to successfully transition to a 100% remote workforce. We helped them deploy proactive phishing defenses to stop attacks across email, social media, the web, and network attack vectors, extend their endpoint management security to mitigate risk from many different devices connecting to their network, automated the detection of suspicious remote desktop connections via machine learning, and secured their cloud infrastructure and SaaS applications. In addition, we carried out remote work security training with their employees to communicate a clear path of how they can perform daily tasks and communications without sacrificing security.
