The Importance Of Security Practices For Remote Workers

Whether your entire office works remotely, you have hybrid workers, or you have a select few employees who work from home, maintaining proper and effective security in the workplace is essential to prevent the loss of data and information.

Many different companies use the web in order to transfer and share information and this unfortunately does put the data at risk of being lost, stolen or corrupted. Having effective and reliable security measures in place is essential in preventing this.

While this can be done on a large scale for those working in offices where the computers and devices used are all on the same network and remain in one place, securing remote worker’s devices and data can be more difficult.

This is because you are unable to access, monitor and control their private home network connections, and it is even more difficult if employees use their own personal devices, computers and laptops when working from home.

One way to overcome this is to issue company computers which are used solely for work, which remote workers can take home and use, with pre-installed and regularly maintained security software.

This can be controlled and monitored remotely meaning you remain aware of what is being sent to and from the device and can keep track of all the data and information being sent between employees.

Another great way to maintain security for remote workers Is utilising cloud software which can only be accessed via passwords and keys. This keeps all work-related data in one place and ensures nobody can accidentally access it through employees’ personal computers.

It is much easier to secure data on the cloud than it is to individually manage each employee’s personal devices securely and you can have more peace of mind this way as well.

    Backing up is VITAL!

    Backing up should be everyones top priority. All too often we see businesses decide to start backing up the wrong side of a costly hard drive disaster or data breach.

    With viruses and malware now capable of causing so much, often irreversible, damage, a substantial backup is imperative. If you’re infected with ransomware, a recent backup often the only way to get you back up and running.

    Why offsite backup and not a removable hard drive?

    Preferably both! But never just a hard drive. Why? Hard drives can fail. It’s as simple as that. Ransomware infections can also creep onto hard drives if they’re left plugged into an infected machine. 

    ​SYS3 use the most reliable and intelligent backup solutions on the market to ensure that our customers’ data is kept secure.

    Why buy your hardware from SYS3?

    Years ago, SYS3 started out by building and supplying custom computer hardware. We know our stuff.

    We keep up with the latest in technology so we are able to provide our customers with the best possible equipment without breaking the bank. Whether you need a new server, laptop, printer or network switch, we’ll always provide you with a variety of options and recommendations to suit your business needs.

    The more advanced technology becomes, the more advanced the bad guys become. Gone are the days when attackers were easy to spot in a badly worded email.

    ​Did you know you can get an infection just by hovering your mouse over a dodgy website banner? Worse? Traditional antivirus products cannot protect you against everything.

    ​Human error is still largely responsible for infections and viruses but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the best protection possible to safeguard your employees and ultimately, your business.

    ​Partnered with Heimdal, SYS3 provide market-leading protection that is proactive, not reactive like traditional antivirus.


    Spam email makes up 70% of ALL email traffic across the world and social engineering means scammers can directly target key employees. Is your job title on social media?

    Over 60% of breaches are caused by human error. Are you confident that your staff are fully trained to spot email-borne threats and avoid falling victim?

    How SYS3 can help

    Just one click has the potential to grind your entire business to a halt and generate a costly bill to put right. What makes things worse is that email viruses are now incredibly clever, highly convincing, and can be very difficult to spot.

    ​Our priority is to make sure our customers are supported and protected as much as possible. 99% of our customers have adopted our mail filtering service and it comes highly recommended. It’s the first line of defence and a vital tool.
