Cybersecurity should be a top priority for businesses managing their newly remote workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Sophos and Nexus IT Consultants want to help by offering free licenses for Sophos’ Intercept X endpoint protection solution, along with the support you need to use them effectively.

Securing your business information and systems from threats like malware and ransomware is critical in today’s complex world of computers, networks and cloud systems and storage. And the coronavirus pandemic has only made the need for cybersecurity more dire.

The spread of coronavirus has forced many businesses to hastily adopt a remote work model, especially as cities and counties are faced with the prospect of total lockdown. With employees stuck at home, they have no choice but to find a way to deliver remote access to business data and applications.

Even before the pandemic, it was becoming increasingly common for businesses to hire remote workers – that is, staff members that work from home, outside of the business’ city of operation, and even much further away. But in doing so, businesses are taking on new risks.

It’s important to recognize that this pandemic will be like open season for cybercriminals. When businesses start prioritizing remote access to data over the security of that data, they make an easy target for hackers.

How Should You Manage Cybersecurity For Your Remote Workers?

The best way to start strengthening your cyber defenses is with a comprehensive and reliable Endpoint Intrusion Detection solution. This security technology will keep you from being one of those businesses that take half a year to realize that they’ve been hacked – by detecting and eliminating threats as they happen. Whether it’s malware, a virus, or another threat, the right Endpoint Intrusion Detection solution will spot threats as they happen, and keep them from causing damage.

The good news is that Sophos is offering free licenses for Sophos Home Premium, giving you access to their Intercept X endpoint protection software at no cost.
