NEWBURGH - ITC, a leading managed technology services provider (MTSP), announced today that the company is providing home office cybersecurity for remote workers to support them through the current pandemic and beyond. According to a BitSight report, "Identifying Unique Risks of Work From Home Remote Office Networks," the findings revealed that "45% of companies had malware on their corporate-associated home networks." The study included more than 41,000 organizations. For small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) this has very strong implications for their remote workforce. Where SMBs typically could ignore the cybersecurity of the home office environment in the past, that's no longer possible as employees have been forced to work from home, and rely on corporate connectivity, software and devices to perform their daily tasks.

"To sum it all up, vulnerability at the home-office is now corporate vulnerability," stated Keith Studt, President of ITC. “Unfortunately, whenever we get back to normal life, it won't be so normal, anymore," he said, citing the expected office policies which will force people to adhere to staggered schedules, where a worker comes into the office on Mondays/Wednesdays and another comes on Tuesdays/Thursdays. The expected growth of remote working, even after the states reopen will still be enormous. Work-from-home is fast becoming the "new normal" and with tech giants like Twitter, Microsoft, Google and Facebook all extending work-from home policies, many SMBs are trying to figure out the best way to reorganize themselves for success.
