Stay Productive & Secure: On the safe side with Cisco in the "Home office".

Given the current situation, many employees are working from inside their own four walls. And with the right collaboration tools, this is not a problem. We can simply meet, chat and share information online. But is the mobile workplace actually safe? With AnyConnect, Umbrella and DuoSec, Cisco offers a range of solutions to keep mobile workers safe and protected. These offerings are available for free until 1 July 2020. Existing users can exceed their licence limit!

  • Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client lets employees work on their mobile end device wherever they are via VPN. IT also enables IT admins to see and control who and what devices can access the company infrastructure.
  • Cisco Umbrella protects users against malicious websites—whether or not they’re on your network. And because Umbrella is a GDPR-compliant SaaS solution, it’s easy to protect users everywhere in just a few minutes.
  • Duo Security enables organisations to verify the identity of users and the health of their devices using advanced multi-factor authentication before they connect to your applications and resources. The zero-trust approach reduces the attack surface and therefore the vulnerability of your assets.

An ideal tool to connect you with your colleagues at home is Cisco WebEx. The free version now allows meetings for up to 100 participants and unlimited time to use it, among other features. Additionally, Cisco is providing companies that are not yet WebEx customers with free licences for up to 180 days. Existing customers can now access advanced features to handle their growing requirements.
