The Problem

When COVID-19 first hit, all of Impact’s 500+ employees very quickly had to shift to a work-from-home model. But that meant there were now a significant number of new cybersecurity vulnerabilities; including unsecured home Wi-Fi networks, a lack of edge protection, and easier ways for attackers to access critical documents.

The internal IT team had to find new and more reliable ways of keeping each endpoint and the overall digital environment safe. And, because attackers are known for jumping on opportunities, they had to make it happen in a very short span of time. See some of the possible consequences of this situation in the cybersecurity case study.

The Solution

Impact’s experts rolled out a number of software updates and upgrades very quickly. They started with a small team of users to ensure that they worked, and then expanded the number of people and devices on them. And since time was a factor, they focused on endpoint protection software of all kinds that could work together to provide a comprehensive defense.

The software they installed combined with their ongoing monitoring of Impact’s environment meant that, during a time when many SMBs became victims, Impact avoided being breached by a cyberattack.
