Today’s workforce no longer exists in the confines of a single office building. Employers and workers alike need an inclusive, future-ready network. Remote workforces need performance optimizations that maximize cost and agility while also never sacrificing security. Meanwhile, Cisco partners need a simplified process to winning new opportunities and generating more revenue. And with hackers attacking every 39 seconds, affecting 1 in 3 Americans each year, there’s no time to waste.
So, what’s the solution for ScanSource Cisco partners? That’s easy: Cisco Cybersecurity’s Secure Remote Workforce portfolio of solutions, designed with premium enterprise security in mind.
Adding Cisco cybersecurity to your existing Cisco offerings couldn’t be easier or more valuable for your customers right now. At ScanSource, we provide you with the options that empower your customers’ remote workforces. Distributed teams come with myriad challenges, and Cisco’s unique portfolio of solutions is designed to directly answer every challenge your customers face in the new mobile world of work.
Today, 65 percent of organizations say attacks have evaded existing preventive security tools, while a whopping 95 percent or more have at some point been the target of malware. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the FBI has seen a 300 percent increase in reported cybercrimes. In other words, there’s more vulnerability for businesses than ever before. With Cisco’s Secure Remote Workforce lineup of solutions, you can offer your customers everything needed to create a strong defense and seamless connectivity – and with ScanSource, offering these solutions is an easy enhancement to add to your Cisco practice.
For main office environments, this line-up includes user security via Cisco Duo’s zero-trust security for granting users access, as well as Cisco Secure Firewall for delivering protection against evolving threats to your network and providing the very best in security controls for branch offices, cloud environments, data centers and everywhere in between. Cisco Access Points offer AI and machine learning features that are easily managed for businesses of all sizes, while Cisco Umbrella’s DNS-layer security detects compromised systems and immediately protects users on and off the network.
For much-lauded hybrid work schedules, home office security is just as important. In fact, 70 percent of breaches originate on endpoints – which is why Cisco Duo verifies user identity with strong multi-factor authentication while also supporting secure Bring-Your-Own-Device needs across every operating system and device imaginable. Cisco Meraki wireless security appliances for telecommuting employees allow a safe and secure extension of your corporate network, with no sacrificing performance.
Finally, for mobile workers who want to work from anywhere, Cisco offers Virtual Private Network (VPN) via Cisco AnyConnect. Only 18 percent of workers use a VPN while on public Wi-Fi, which is a huge security vulnerability for your customers. Offering Cisco AnyConnect enables your customers to have secure access to their enterprise network in an intuitive way, while Cisco Duo sets location-based policies that grant or deny access to applications based on user and device origination point, IP address or other requirements.
The bottom line is this: Cisco Secure Workforce solutions are designed to address the multitude of work styles and locations that comprise today’s remote workforce. And with SecureX monitoring software, the unification of all this data in one location allows maximum visibility, operational efficiency and security for your customers’ networks. From endpoints to cloud and applications, SecureX brings it all together with an integrated, simple set up that gives your customers complete security – and gives you new opportunities to develop your Cisco practice and grow your revenue.
