Webinar Highlights: Top Security Features for Field Workers

When your employees work in the field, security vulnerabilities arise for a number of reasons. Employees can be using unvetted or personal mobile devices. They may be sharing files without data-level security restrictions or effective version control. Third party apps may have undue access to sensitive or co-mingled company data. However, if your business is using or migrating to Microsoft 365, the platform has security tools to address all these concerns: 

  1. Windows Virtual Desktop

    • This virtual desktop allows employees to access their applications and files anywhere, on any device. 
  2. Microsoft Defender

    • This is built into Windows 10, and provides a central console through which to monitor anti-virus and anti-malware efforts. 
  3. Azure Information Protection

    • Allows your IT team to put restrictions on data, to prevent loss or leakage. For example, if a user flags an email "internal only", this prevents forwarding outside your organization, or copying/pasting of the content. 
  4. Conditional Access

    • Your IT team can set specific policies and thresholds for user access. For example, if they are attempting to access documents while in the office, they will not be required to provide supplemental information via multi-factor authentication. If, however, they are meeting with prospects in a new geographic location, they would be required to complete MFA. These predefined, trusted settings are one of the most effective means of protecting your business data.

Remember Employee Security Best Practices

One of the most effective ways to keep your field workers safe is by prioritizing cyber security education. Keep them informed over company-wide Teams channels, shared intranets, or regular email updates. It is also important during this time to implement security best practices, such as:

  • Layered MFA and identity management

  • Endpoint management solutions such as InTune

  • Verify suspicious emails, and avoiding links or attachments  

  • Isolate personal computers from company networks via virtual workstations
