Connect, manage & secure your remote workforce during the novel coronavirus pandemic

Rapidly developing and unprecedented world events have challenged organizations to quickly adapt to a new reality. COVID-19 has forced governments to enact social distancing measures and business closures that have disrupted daily life. Many organizations are struggling to provide secure remote access to employees

  • Secure multi-factor remote access
  • Remote endpoint systems management
  • At home database availability
  • Remote database management and performance monitoring
  • Cybersecurity resilience
  • Secure use of Microsoft Office 365 and Teams
  • Patch management
  • Backup and recovery

Solutions for Managing and Securing the Remote Workforce

We’re all facing uncharted territory as COVID-19 has changed the very nature of work. But, we’re in this together, and Quest has the solutions you need to connect, manage and secure your remote workforce.

Security

Hybrid AD and Office 365 Auditing

Hybrid AD and Office 365 Auditing

Bad actors prey on vulnerable and distracted organizations during a crisis who may have their head turned the other way. The remote workforce surge will lead to explosive usage of Office 365, Teams, SharePoint Online and OneDrive. With On Demand Audit, you can track all configuration, user and administrator changes made across Hybrid AD and Office 365, and store audit history for up to 10 years in the On Demand tenant.

Secure your Rapidly Expanded Remote Workforce

Secure your Rapidly Expanded Remote Workforce

As your remote workforce suddenly grows, the need to secure their access becomes more important than ever. Multifactor authentication is a great first step, but typically implementing MFA can be difficult and time intensive – until now. Defender is a proven multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution that quickly and easily integrates into your Active Directory installation allowing your remote employees and third-party contractors to safely access all resources they need. One Identity is now offering a special six-month term license for Defender that includes the software and soft token for $5/user. Contact your IAM specialist for more details.

Secure Newly Remote Privileged Users

Secure Newly Remote Privileged Users

As administrators are required to work remotely, securing and monitoring their activities is extremely important, particularly for critical infrastructure and sensitive systems. One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions enables you to control, monitor and record privileged sessions of administrators (including those working from home), remote vendors and other high-risk users. It serves as a proxy, inspecting the application-level protocol traffic and rejecting any traffic that violates the protocol – making it an effective shield against attacks. Contact your IAM specialist to learn more.

Reduce the Strain on your IT Helpdesk for Remote Worker Password Resets

Reduce the Strain on your IT Helpdesk for Remote Worker Password Resets

Keeping your growing remote workforce secure means passwords must be changed upon change of location. Without administrative assistance and user self-service, this can be an overwhelming burden on IT teams. Password Manager makes it easy, delivering user self-service, granular policy, and administrative automation for passwords in Active Directory and beyond. Contact your IAM specialist to learn more.

User workstation monitoring

User Workstation Monitoring

Phishing and malware campaigns are on the rise and targeting your endpoints. Cyber criminals are exploiting the opportunity of today’s chaos including the flood of new endpoints connecting to your network and a distracted remote user base wanting the latest coronavirus information. InTrust monitors all user workstation activity from logons to logoffs, and real-time alerting enables you to immediately respond to threats with automated incident response to suspicious activity.

Remote and VPN Logon Auditing

Remote and VPN Logon Auditing

VPNs are overloaded due to the WFH surge, and the number of daily remote logon sessions is skyrocketing. Bad actors are trying to exploit VPN vulnerabilities and steal credentials of remote employees to persist in networks. With Quest, you capture, alert and report on all user logon/logoff and sign-in activity, both on premises and in the cloud.

Management and Security for Hybrid Active Directory and Beyond

Management and Security for Hybrid Active Directory and Beyond

One Identity Active Roles can help your organization smooth out all the recent status and permissions changes in your AD environment, and make AD account lifecycle management agile, automated and secure. With automated workflows, you can quickly connect your workforce to systems and clean up their privileges.
Learn how you can simplify and accelerate these processes:

  • Provision, reprovision and deprovision accounts
  • Bring remote workers back to the office
  • Restore furloughed employees’ access

Read our new white paper that discusses how you can preserve your business momentum during these trying times and particularly when things return to normal. The paper examines the impact – and projected ROI – of Active Roles in three illustrative use cases that occur during and after a significant change in business.

Seamlessly Secure all Endpoints used by your New Remote Workforce

As your remote workforce has grown, the number of endpoints you need to manage and the way you manage them have grown with it. KACE UEM makes it easy to inventory all existing endpoints and proactively assess vulnerabilities. Your remote team can remain unaffected as you update necessary patches and distribute business critical software from a single tool. And, as your users rely more heavily on mobile devices, you will be able to quickly inventory and secure them, preventing risk to your organization.

Office 365 License Management

Office 365 License Management

Office 365 usage is soaring, and license management is a crucial role that ensures the optimum number of licenses are available to support your organization, now and in the future. On Demand License Management helps you discover how many Office 365 licenses are available and to whom they are assigned, determine utilization, and estimate costs associated with license consumption.

Control Teams adoption and Office 365 group sprawl

Control Teams Adoption and Office 365 Group Sprawl

Ready or not – Microsoft Teams adoption is exploding. That means more users are creating Teams, which also creates an Office 365 group. With Enterprise Reporter, you can identify which Teams are being created and actively used. This helps you stay ahead of group sprawl before it gets out of hand. On Demand Group Management keeps order in your growing environment with rules for group naming, attestation and expiration.

Ensuring Peak Database Performance from Anywhere

Ensuring Peak Database Performance from Anywhere

Database administrators had to leave their operations centers behind as they transitioned to their home offices. Without real-time monitoring, how will DBAs detect and correct performance issues? With mobile device access, Spotlight provides complete performance monitoring for SQL Server databases.

At Home Database Access

At Home Database Access

Database developers need to keep working during the crisis, especially since many applications must change to support new procedures and protocols. Toad empowers developers to efficiently and accurately design, test and deploy code while collaborating with colleagues across the DevOps pipeline.

Disaster Recovery

Hybrid Active Directory Resilience & Business Continuity

Hybrid Active Directory Resilience & Business Continuity

In these uncertain times, it is critical to have complete coverage for any AD and Azure AD disaster as well as the flexibility and choices for quick recovery. Mistakes happen, corruption happens, disasters happen. When a disaster strikes your Active Directory and you're synching to the cloud, every second counts. Your business depends on it. Quest recovery solutions fill the gaps for AD recovery both on premise and in the cloud.

Data Protection and Disaster Recovery

Data Protection and Disaster Recovery

What happens to regular backup procedures when so many employees have abruptly transitioned to their home offices? With increased security risks from the use of home networks, non-sanctioned file sharing technologies and the rapid rise of phishing attacks capitalizing on the virus, disciplined data backup is more important than ever. Whether you’re trying to manage a multitude of new users in your virtual desktop environment, storing and retrieving data from the cloud or backing up your most important, private company information, Quest has backup and disaster recovery solutions that can ensure business continuity.
