How Two-Factor Authentification Can Help Prevent Your Next Security Breach

Posted by Dylan Mapp on Aug 29, 2017 3:29:34 PM

As we wrap up August, we are seeing an increased need for security with our clients' remote access processes. When we see a security breach, it's either a malicious link in an email or a third party hacking a network via remote access. 

Trustwave's Secure Email Gateway takes care of email security, utilising best practice blended threat modules and extensive policy controls to ensure our customers have the best protection available when using email on any device.

However, the majority of security breaches we are seeing are coming via remote access. With mobility in the workforce becoming so popular, employees are working from different locations and using personal devices to log into applications and accessing network drives. Often it's difficult to keep track of who is accessing what.

We have formed a partnership with Duo in order to utilise their world-renowned two-factor authentication. 

Duo will allow us to help you verify the identity of your users and the health of their devices before they connect to the applications you want them to access. User identity is verified using an easy-to-use two factor authentication solution and this gives your company the ability to enforce stronger user access policies. 

To see use-case videos for Duo, click here. Etsy, Facebook, Yelp, Toyota, Eventbrite and thousands more are using this product to make their remote access processes more secure.

Back-to-base warranties make retail-grade computers an expensive BYOD mistake.

Posted by Amanda Bowen on Nov 5, 2015 8:23:28 AM

Our business has been putting IT into schools for over twenty years. Now that many schools are going BYOD, it leaves parents with the decision of which device to buy their children, rather than the IT Manager, Business Manager or Principal.

After running BYOD portals for the last few years, the one issue we've heard countless times is challenges with retail grade hardware and back-to-base warranties. If you buy a laptop from a retailer, it's not commerical grade equipment and the warranty isn't either.

Thanks go to inTechnology for their contributions to today's software post.

Many Devices – Many Challenges – One Solution

Windows, OS X, iOS and Android – Chances are you as an IT admin or educator are responsible for managing some, but more likely all, of these platforms. The rapid rise in the number and type of devices on the network has IT departments across Australia being stretched to their limit.

Challenges you may have already experienced or soon to experience include on-boarding BYOD devices, deploying certificates, deploying e-mail and Wi-Fi settings, identifying warranty expiration dates and faulty hard drives; to name just a few!
