Securing Your Remote Work Platform
Once you have finalized the platform through which you intend to support your workforce remotely, you immediately need to start thinking about its security. In case you have opted in favor of an on premise solution, its security will also be your sole responsibility.
If the decision is made in favor of a cloud based solution, the core elements of cyber security will be the responsibility of your Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud. However, cloud security is most effective under the “shared responsibility” model.
Your CSP alone, even if it’s a secure cloud provider like dinCloud, will never be able to fully secure your remote work architecture from constantly evolving cyber threats completely on its own. Your IT admins and more importantly, end users will have to play their due role.

Why Choose a Cloud Based Security Solution?
Due to its very nature, cloud based entities are much more susceptible to cyber threats as compared to highly secure internal corporate networks. Cloud providers, in most cases, rely on the internet for service delivery, which is by far the most hostile security environment.
Cyber miscreants from all across the world will try to exploit even the slightest weakness, loophole or oversight in your cyber security protocols and gain access to your infrastructure to wreak havoc with it.
Due to their constant exposure to a broad spectrum of cyber threats, cloud based security providers in general and Cloud Service Providers (CSP) in particular are perhaps in the best position to confront as well as counter these threats.
Therefore, it makes perfect sense to adopt a cloud based security solution and provider for your cyber security needs. Their solutions work equally well for both on premise as well as cloud environments alike.
