Since the global pandemic, organizations across the world have guided employees to say at home and work remotely. Consequently, malicious cyber actors have taken this opportunity to up their attacks, both in frequency and scope. They are targeting remote workers with COVD-19 themed phishing emails and spreading malware through fake apps that appear to provide information about the disease. The FBI recently reported that the number of complaints about cyberattacks is up to as many as 4,000 a day. That represents a 400% increase from what they were seeing pre-coronavirus.

Make sure your infrastructure—and workforce—is remote ready. VForce will verify your remote infrastructure compliance, and quickly analyze and test your critical components such as device encryption, VPN health and application.
