Security threats don’t end at the office.

Right now around the globe massive amounts of people are staying at home in this unprecedented time and they are doing something that they may have never done before, work from home. They are working from home on personal devices that have most likely never been vetted by the business to be safe to use. They are not monitored. They are not managed. They do not have the caliber of security in place at the endpoint level that is at the office. They are not behind a true security appliance firewall, but are instead behind a residential class router that pretty much allows any kind of traffic to pass to and from without much concern. Data at rest on these devices is not encrypted.

There is a whole tsunami of cyber security issues with this scenario and hackers around the world are well aware of it and are salivating at the prospect of the new gold mine of digital breach potentials out there. So we at Fast Assist have stepped up to the plate and we now offer our monthly support clients a solution to this problem.

We will manage one home endpoint for every business endpoint that we manage for your organization, including client security licensing, etc. We can do this at the same price that we are supporting your work endpoints. So for $25 per business endpoint per month, we will support each business endpoint with unlimited remote and onsite support. We will also support one home based endpoint with unlimited remote support for your staff member that utilizes that business endpoint we are already supporting. Naturally we will need approval from your staff member to deploy our endpoint manager onto their system. Since this will help keep their work resources as secure as possible, they shouldn’t mind the additional software on their system at home.

More specific details will be given out upon request and we are in the process of updating our Service Level Agreements and Managed Services Agreements to reflect these new changes. We are just doing our part to help businesses thrive as securely as possible in these times.
