“After several weeks of lockdown with its necessary work-from-home (WFH) conditions, we’ve all adapted fairly well to the WFH basics,” stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects. “Now is the time to check and improve the security of our business data.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “5 File Sharing Best Practices to Protect Business Data at Home.”

1. Establish a Security-first Mindset

“With COVID-19 WFH policies, end users regularly conduct business via home computer, laptop or mobile device. As a result, the network perimeter has largely disappeared. Thus, an organization’s WFH security posture would be much improved with a security-conscious staff. Everyone should be mindful of information security and operate with sensible, due diligence.”

2. Use Business-Grade File Sharing Solutions

“Businesses most frequently use email to communicate, collaborate and share documents, images and files. However, constraints in common email services such as file size limits often force users to find other solutions to share information.”

“Frequently they opt for consumer-grade file sharing solutions to circumvent the limitations. However, these consumer services fall short when it comes to protecting business data. Compliance and eDiscovery issues as well as loss of sensitive data are the inevitable result.”
