SAN DIEGO – June 8, 2021 – (Newswire.com)
Stickley on security, a San Diego-based company that develops innovative security solutions to help businesses fight cybercrime, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Vega Cloud to help drive a more secure and compliant remote working experience.
Since the start of the pandemic, the FBI has seen a 300% increase in reported cybercrime, resulting in losses totaling more than $ 4.2 billion; $ 17,700 is lost every minute due to phishing attacks, and the average cost of a malware attack is 50 days.
“Since the pandemic started and forced employees out of our strengthened facilities and networks, the bad actors have shifted their strategies, focusing on weak domestic and communal networks,” Stickley said. “We are focused on educating remote workers and their employers; However, a modern approach to remote working is also needed from a technological point of view.
“The Secure remote work The solution powered by Vega is a unique approach with new technologies that frankly did not exist until recently, ”said Vega Cloud Founder and CEO Kris Bliesner. “Hackers know about existing technologies and vulnerabilities, especially when employees are working outside of the large infrastructure investments we have made in the past. ”
Stickley on Security is excited to bring to market a broader offering that, along with education and awareness, solves technology challenges without having to add expensive network equipment or replace end-user computing devices. For a small monthly fee, business stakeholders can rest in the knowledge that their data is secure and out of these vulnerable networks.
“Organizations understand that cybersecurity awareness coupled with a modern technology approach is more critical than ever before,” Stickley adds. “The world has changed, and even if the pandemic is brought under control, for many employees, working from home will continue indefinitely. Organizations need to think beyond short-term VPN solutions to securely address the many risks presented by these long-term remote employees. ”
Stickley on Security was founded in 2007 with a plan to provide organizations with meaningful education and awareness solutions that employees and customers would actually embrace. As our founder Jim Stickley points out, providing training is simple but much more difficult to actually educate participants. Our goal is to ensure that your customers and employees are not only informed about cybersecurity risks, but that they can apply what they have learned in their daily lives and work.
