Trend Micro Offers Tips To Secure Devices While You Work From Home

Across industries and geographies, companies are implementing work from home policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19, resulting in a spike in the number of teleworkers. At such times, it’s imperative for devices to be secure.

Below are best practices from Trend Micro that organizations can undertake, in order to mitigate potential risks of a cyberbreach:

  • Enable the firewall for added security in devices, or use a virtual network especially when remotely accessing assets.
  • Update the firmware of wi-fi enabled devices, routers, and other hardware as soon as updates are available.
  • Change default wi-fi network names and passwords to complex credentials to deter unauthorized access.

Also, in an effort to help reduce the security risks of computers connecting to corporate networks, Trend Micro is also offering businesses a 6-month free trial of their Maximum Security product to be installed on home computers so employees can work securely during this unfortunate crisis.
