VIDEO: “Alternatives for Security Controls (for remote work)”

imageIn trying to enable the modern working from home scenario, the challenge for organizations arises in working with or around their legacy network architecture. As more customers and users move to the cloud, the network’s ability to scale becomes limited. Microsoft’s Chief Security Advisor, Sean Sweeney and Senior Program Manager, Paul Collinge, address the architecture’s design problems and focus on three steps for adapting an organization’s network for heavy remote usage during these unprecedented times while leveraging the capabilities already present in Microsoft 365.

  1. Identify paths to optimize for Office 365
  2. Implement a VPN split tunnel
  3. Take a different approach to security controls

With taking these steps to adapt to a changing security environment, organizations can take advantage of control benefits such as preventing unauthorized access, controlling authorized user access, data loss prevention, and IDS/IPS, DDoS protection. Your organization can effectively elevate security and performance while also protecting your employees at home.
