The Need for Remote Worker Security
Remote work is the new paradigm where the current health environment requires employees to complete work-related tasks through remote internet connections. This new telework model can benefit employees due to the geographic freedom, the reduction in commute, and flexible schedule. There are also occasions in which remote work may be the only option for continued operations. When emergencies happen that prevent employees from being productive in the office, organizations need solutions that enable business continuity, supporting employees as they work from alternate locations. The transition to the teleworker model opens users and companies up to a myriad of security threats including malware, all forms of phishing attacks and many more. The Fortinet Security Fabric addresses remote worker scenarios with three primary levels of connectivity.

Power users are employees who need a consistent, secure connections to the corporate network from their designated remote work location.
Super users are the most demanding remote workers that require the highest levels of security or application performance for their work.
