KoolSpan Protects Mobile Calls, Texts, Data from Increased Threats While Working from Home for Government, Corporate Employees
Bethesda, Maryland – March 23, 2020 – In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, governments and businesses globally are shifting employees to work from home or other remote locations. These organizations face unprecedented challenges and IT systems are under strain from demands placed by remote employees. Home based employees often face no alternative but to use home networks and personal devices for sensitive work. Conversations that would normally have taken place face-to-face within secured networks are now made over cellular networks and the Internet.
Hackers and cyber criminals, both state sponsored and non-state sponsored target remote, home-based employees with documented attacks against government and corporations, including mobile network based surveillance and espionage targeting mobile communications of remote employees.
KoolSpan recognizes these organizations must operate, but urges them to take prudent precautionary measures protecting employees’ calls, texts and data.
Remote employees can easily take advantage of KoolSpan’s TrustCall Global Service which delivers high fidelity audio via intuitive, easy-to-use solution that installs in minutes and requires no user training. Organizations maintain flexibility to migrate to on premise or hybrid deployments in the future.
