How Fortinet Firewall Solutions Help Keep Your Work from Home Employees Safe

Is your company one of the many affected by COVID-19 whose employees are now working from home?

So how can you be sure that your employees computers are not left exposed to online threats during this time?

The answer is simple.

Companies need to start looking more closer to home and ensuring that their own corporate network is up to standard and protected from online threats.  After all, it’s this network that work from home employees will be connecting to, so you need to make sure it is secure from both internal and external threats.
