Internet security for nomadic workers: 7 things you need to know

OpenDNS

Nomadic workers have fundamentally changed the security landscape. They work from home, in coffeeshops, at airports, in hotel lobbies, and on multiple devices and Wi-Fi access points each day. Thanks to cloud-based email, CRM, finance and project management apps they no longer need to VPN back to the main office to access secure corporate data. This has resulted in a massive loss of visibility and control for IT departments, an increase in malware and botnet infections, and has made it nearly impossible to enforce Web filtering policies. This whitepaper examines how the dramatic shift toward mobility has impacted IT's ability to effectively secure users, wherever they choose to work. Inside, you'll find advice for securing your users that's both practical and easy to implement.
