Proximus SpearIT heeft haar VMware Professional Solution Provider partnership bevestigd.
When an employee gets up to get a coffee, he leaves his PC behind unlocked, open for anyone who is in the building. Everyone occasionally forgets to lock their PC, but hackers can install malware with a simple USB stick via an employee's account.
Windows 10 has a remedy for this. You can use Bluetooth to pair your PC with another personal device (for example, a smartphone or smartwatch). This way, your PC can detect when you step away and will lock automatically.
Nobody leaves their smartphone behind unattended, do they? A smartwatch is even better. Nobody can get into the PC unnoticed to install malware.
NB: the Bluetooth range will differ depending on the device and battery power. A smartwatch has a smaller radius than the latest new smartphones, which can connect up to 33 m on a full charge. In our test, a smartphone worked better, with a radius of 4 m.
Microsoft has announced further Windows 10 and Office 365 security options. And thanks to our collaboration with Proximus, we can secure your business end-to-end: from your incoming network traffic to your firewall and user devices.
Feel free to contact us if you need help upgrading the security in your business.
