The challenges for today’s remote workers

While businesses’ ability to pivot to a completely remote workforce has been remarkable, it comes with a number of challenges related to keeping data protected.

Employees have to rely on email, cloud repositories and other collaboration tools to communicate and share data remotely.

Many remote workers connect via less secure Wi-Fi networks than what is available in the office. A lot of data now resides in the cloud where security measures are different from on-premises servers.

Virtual communication has become more complex

Corporate VPNs often cannot perform well enough to handle the increased traffic from remote workers, creating productivity bottlenecks.

Email and video conferencing tools such as Zoom have become the primary means of communication, and both have their own security challenges when it comes to sharing information.

It’s critical that your organization work to build a strong culture of data security awareness; otherwise, remote workers will struggle to follow best practices when handling your sensitive data.

The challenge in protecting your data – and remote workers

So with all of your employees now working remotely, how do you minimize the risk of a data breach or inadvertent exposure of sensitive information?

Typically, your security strategy would start with strong network protection, but that isn’t as easy when your network is spread out across hundreds if not thousands of remote locations and includes a mish-mash of home-based components.

How Titus Config for Remote Work enables protection for data and users

Now more than ever you need to protect the data itself.

You need to ensure that your data is classified correctly by remote users, that download attempts are being monitored across your remote workforce, and that remote employees have a strong awareness of your data security policies.

If all files and emails are properly classified, you can worry just a little less about a potentially insecure remote infrastructure.

Titus Config for Remote Work uses pre-configured libraries that, in combination with the Titus policy engine, make it easy for people working from home to safely share files with colleagues, apply data classifications to email and documents according to information handling policies, and prevent data leaks due to human error.

Easily classify documents and files

Users have a simple, flexible way to identify sensitive information and enforce classification of documents and emails.

Manual classification

Windows users can right click a file on their desktop to classify it or use the Titus classification tools within a document’s toolbar. When users hover over the toolbar ribbon within a document, a guidance popup appears to help them choose the appropriate classification.

Guided classification

Titus can offer suggestions for how to classify a document based on either step-by-step “Help me Choose” questions in the user interface or intelligent machine learning technology. Users are not forced to use the suggested classifications but must add a classification before saving or sharing a new document.

Automatic classification

Organizations can configure Titus Config for Remote Work to enforce their information handling policies. When users send an email or create a new document, Titus leverages its machine learning technologies to automatically apply the appropriate classification based on organizational data security policies.

Using machine learning, Titus applies increasingly accurate data classifications over time, based on the context of repeat document types or classification history.

Watch this demo to see how our solution can automatically apply classification labels to your sensitive documents:

Share data confidently

Keeping track of the subtleties and layers of sensitive data created on a daily basis is no easy task for an individual user working in a home office.

Titus Config for Remote Work guides and empowers users to share information confidently, providing numerous checks and balances that ensures data is protected and shared appropriately.

Recipient checking

Titus Config for Remote Work keeps an eye out for information being shared with the wrong parties. Integrating with multiple browsers and email clients, Titus sends an alert to users if sensitive internal-only information is addressed to external recipients. Other guardrails can be set as well, including masking of names and contact information in the email CC: line.

Third-party domain blocking

You can restrict or prohibit certain categories of documents from being sent externally or from being sent to specific domains. IT administrators have the option of adding an unlimited number of blocked domains to the list over time.

Email encryption

Certain categories of documents attached in emails triggers data encryption automatically.

Data loss prevention

Titus Config for Remote Work integrates with data loss prevention (DLP) technologies to alert users attempting to email or upload sensitive content to the cloud.

Sensitive data redaction

Names, addresses, credit card numbers, social security numbers, and other personal details are redacted when emailed, uploaded to the cloud, or shared during video conferencing calls.

Default redaction blacks out an entire string of sensitive data, but you can create custom controls using smart regex to fine tune redaction parameters, such as blacking out all but the last four digits in a credit card number.

Entire documents can also be redacted during video conferencing sessions.

Produce valuable reports

Titus Config for Remote Work features an easy-to-use and flexible reporting feature that allows IT administrators to conduct remote worker usage audits and provide dashboard reports to business stakeholders.

Reports can be generated from the Titus administrative console and distributed automatically to key stakeholders.
