Coronavirus Update: Remote Working for Businesses

During this uncertain period, we'd like to assure all of our customers that we're here to offer support in ensuring your staff are able to work remotely and securely during the Covid-19 pandemic. We're equipped to ensure that essential administration and network continuity can still take place.

We are able to utilise our purpose-built Fortigate Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW) and cybersecurity processors, to deliver top-rated protection as well as high-performance inspection of clear-texted and encrypted traffic when working remotely. Our firewalls are configured with built-in support for IPsec and SSL Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).

This enables remote workers to connect securely to your business network. Most Talk Straight customers already have the existing technology to support this functionality. To activate this call: 01133 222 333 – Option 3

For added security levels however, when accessing and protecting sensitive data, our FortiTokens provide dual factor authentication for accessing your network securely and remotely. The FortiTokens confirm the identity of users by adding a second factor to the authentication process, through physical or mobile application-based tokens.

Home Remote Worker
This is for the remote workers, who require access to email, internet, teleconferencing, limited file sharing, and function specific capabilities (finance, HR, etc.) from their remote or home working site. This includes access to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications in the cloud, such as Microsoft Office 365, as well as a secure connection to your school’s or office network. Basic remote workers can connect to the business or office network using FortiClient integrated VPN client software and verify their identity with FortiToken for multifactor authentication.

The Fortinet Security Fabric is based on integrated and automated security architecture, allowing remote monitoring and management of devices from a single computer or pane of glass. Network Managers can achieve full visibility into all connected devices, regardless of their deployment situation.

Our Fortinet solutions are designed to be quick to deploy and easy to use. Appliances deployed at remote/home sites can be pre-configured before they’re received, allowing automatic set up on site, making home-working life easy for your staff.

The FortiGate NGFW inspects encrypted and plaintext traffic at enterprise scale with minimal performance impacts. However, it also includes an integrated VPN gateway that acts as an endpoint for encrypted connections to teleworkers. The FortiGate NGFW integrates Microsoft Active Directory (AD), and MFA and single sign-on (SSO) solutions.
