Q: I recently signed on a new customer, and many of their employees work remotely. They brought me on to support their servers, PCs, and some corporate laptops, but I know their employees are using other tablets and mobile devices to access corporate information. With so many of their employees accessing data remotely, how can I protect them properly? How do I account for remote and likely unsecure access to the server and networks?
From what it sounds like, this customer doesn’t have a strategy for supporting BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies. While this is unsettling, it also opens up a promising opportunity for your MSP business to step in as their advisor and implement the necessary policies to support their remote workforce.
