If you are a business or a teacher that is considering using DEX to meet all of your communication needs, then read this article. Throughout the article, we discuss DEX’s unique abilities and benefits in mobile-only workforces. Along with that, we review some of the common mistakes users make when they go DEX for the first time. By the time you’ve finished reading this article, you’ll be more confident about whether DEX is right for you, whether or not it’s right for your workforce, and what you need to do to protect yourself and your computer network from unauthorized access.
1. Check your devices’ security profile again
One of the first steps any experienced computer user should take is updating their security profile on their network. A security profile is a document that secures an individual’s DEX device against unauthorized access. It consists of a username and password, and is designed to be shared by multiple users on a network. As such, this type of security can be seen as one of the most important aspects of using DEX, because it creates a barrier of sorts that preventing an unauthorized party from gaining access to your devices.
2. Make sure policies are updated
You should also update your security profile whenever any new hardware or software is added to your company network. For example, many new mobile devices may have Bluetooth capabilities. It would be a good practice to check to see if you have Bluetooth enabled DEX computers and laptops, or if you are planning to implement this feature. If you don’t already have this feature, you should seriously consider adding it to your network. Doing so will ensure that any new employees or students that use your network have an easy way to log into their computers at all times.
3. Take advantage of DeX security settings
Next, check your DEX security settings. The default setting is set Security to All Users. This basically tells DEX that any user with an unlocked cellular phone will be able to connect to the network. However, if you frequently provide access to unauthorized users, you should change this setting to disabled. Doing so will give users access to their computers only – not to everyone, but those that really need access to the system.
On a related note, you should never provide sensitive information through DEX over the wireless network. Some users may trust DEX over a public computer network (PCN), because they feel that this option offers more protection than a regular wireless connection. However, this option is only effective if the users actually know how to turn off their wireless connection when they are not using the network. In other words, this option is only as secure as the weakest link in your security network, and by providing sensitive information over a wireless network, you are increasing the risk of someone taking this data and using it for their own purposes.
If you have employees in areas that are prone to attack, such as the Middle East or weak countries such as Pakistan, then you should take additional steps to secure them. You should either use encryption to protect their information or put them on a list of trusted users. Neither option will prevent every possible attack, but by making certain that only authorized computer network users can connect, you may be reducing the number of unauthorized users who try to gain access to your network. Finally, you should train your employees to be careful about what information they choose to share with others. If your employees use Facebook or MySpace to communicate with customers, for example, you should inform them that sharing this information may be dangerous.
4. Get a bird’s eye view
By far the most important factor in maintaining security at DEX is the hardware that is used to transmit the signal. As mentioned earlier, a traditional wired network is much more secure than a mobile network. However, wireless phones have the advantage of being easy to reprogrammed so that new access codes can be created whenever needed. Also, if you are using DEX for a mobile workforce, you need to make sure that all employees are trained to use the hardware. This is why many companies are beginning to use DEX over Wi-Fi as a secondary way of protecting sensitive data from unauthorised wireless network users.
In addition to these practical tips, it is also important to keep track of how often users try to access their data from unauthorized networks. Unauthorized users may simply be trying to discover whether they can bypass the security measures in place so that they can obtain personal details such as social security numbers or bank account numbers. As well as monitoring the frequency with which unauthorized users attempt to access your network, you should also monitor the websites that the workers are visiting. If the workers are visiting sites that are known to be insecure, such as adult websites or sites that store credit card data, you may want to restrict access to these sites so that your network remains safe.
Take advantage of DeX security settings
The ultimate goal of IDIOMsoft’s Enterprise Solutions product line is to take advantage of all the benefits of biometric sensors and other fully integrated software solutions to provide a proactive information security management solution. A Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) provides maximum security for an enterprise through a set of hardware and software solutions. The most important part of any enterprise software solution is how it interacts with the company’s intranet (network). This interaction occurs through a secure web browser, which must be connected to a trusted host, whether it is a physical or virtual private server. With an Identity Intelligence Enterprise Management (IEM) platform, data can be automatically sent to the browser from the Intranet and from there travel to the browser’s password-protected admin panel.
Any company that does business online should consider using IEM to secure sensitive information that travels between internal company networks and external sources. IEM is an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) solution that uses open source libraries to allow network attacks against itself. The concept behind this is that if an attacker can guess a network’s password, he can then gain access to the company’s confidential information. If a network is constantly unprotected from outside attacks, then company confidential data is at risk of being compromised.
There are several ways to secure a network by implementing a set of policies and rules. One policy could be implemented that would enforce a set of standards of behavior for employees, such as never returning a blank password to a database. Another policy could prohibit employees from using their home computer to connect to the company intranet or network. This could be very useful for corporate clients who have employees that use home computers for personal reasons. Preventing employees from accessing company data also helps the business to maintain good customer relations.
The other policy could be used in conjunction with the first. That policy could prohibit all communication between the internal network and application sandboxing software. The purpose of this is to ensure that a company’s application can only read data from a secure content delivery layer (which is the standard jargon for software as a service). An application sandboxing system allows a company to separate various components, such as a Java application from its HTML code. This separation protects the application from security vulnerabilities.
The second policy, known as DeX Secure Shared Hosting, allows the use of a variety of different authentication methods. This policy dictates that a company can enable or disable the use of SSL, Keyboard, Digest, TCP or UPnP. The reason why SSL and keyboard are included in this policy is because they are among the most common forms of securing sensitive information. Digest is a type of protocol that transmits unformatted information, such as credit card numbers, through the Internet. When an employee accesses a website that requires the use of SSL, an encryption algorithm is decoded and the appropriate secret information is sent to the employee’s secure mail box. This type of security is often used by banks, companies and even law enforcement agencies.
The third and final policy is known as Network Management. This policy establishes the rules by which network services and features on a company’s network will work. The main benefit of this policy is that it helps IT professionals manage their company’s network. For example, the use of multiple authentication methods for different areas of a network is allowed. Different users can also have access to different areas of a network.
This type of control panel is often used as a way for IT professionals to customize certain aspects of a company’s network. This can make a great deal of difference, depending on the policies that are established. This method can allow a business owner to create a virtual address for a user before that person logs onto the network. This virtual address can allow a hacker to log into that user’s account without truly being in that physical location. Using a control panel allows IT professionals to block an account from even being opened.
DeX also offers several other benefits besides managing accounts and restricting access to the network itself. One of these is automatic updates to the software programs that run on the network. These can help improve the speed and efficiency of network operations. By setting up the appropriate policy for the company’s needs, individuals can take full advantage of DeX network security settings. This can help a business to ensure the safety of its most confidential information.
