Secure Remote Worker Solution

Coping With A Remote Workforce

Many SMBs need to allow employees to work remotely, and execute job-related tasks from home offices or co-working spaces. This exposes businesses to a wide range of security risks: malware, cracking exploits, ransomware attacks, and many types of phishing attempts. Meeting regulatory compliance (e.g., HIPAA or PCI-DSS) may be virtually impossible if employees are permitted to directly access business LANs from home networks. SMBs need convenient but secure remote worker solutions to cope with this problem.

Uplevel’s Secure Remote Worker Solution provides today’s workforce flexibility without compromising security. Businesses can now allow employees to work from home (or anywhere) while shielding themselves from insecure and vulnerable devices such as Smart TVs, gaming consoles, webcams, etc., found on home networks. MSPs serving these SMBs can enforce good security practices and maintain consistent security posture across the entire business - without having to make house calls.

Our Secure Remote Worker gateways extend the security perimeter created by the MSP at the business office into the employee homes, but without having to modify home internet devices or work with residential Internet providers. Employees self-install these gateways in less than 15 minutes with no changes to their current home network. The gateways automatically set up secure tunnels to the business office (either an Uplevel office gateway, or a third-party firewall), and allow employees to access business resources while remaining invisible to compromised devices on their home networks. An added advantage is that MSPs can manage the Secure Remote Worker gateways in the same way as regular office gateways, and enforce corporate security or access policies, without touching any home network equipment.
