The partnership was forged to combat the explosion of cybercrime exploiting the exponential increase in remote workers.
SAN DIEGO – June 8, 2021 – (Newswire.com)
Stickley on Security, a San Diego-based company that builds innovative security solutions to help companies combat cybercrime, announced today that it has signed a partnership with Vega Cloud to help drive a more secure and compliant remote-working experience.
Since the pandemic began, the FBI has seen a 300% increase in reported cybercrime, resulting in losses totaling more than $4.2 billion; $17,700 is lost every minute due to phishing attacks, and the average cost in time of a malware attack is 50 days.
“Since the pandemic started and forced employees outside of our hardened facilities and networks, the bad actors have shifted their strategies, focusing on the weakness of home and communal networks,” said Jim Stickley. “We are focused on educating the remote workers and their employers; however, there is a need for a modern approach to working remote from a technology perspective as well.”
“The Secure WorkRemote solution powered by Vega is a unique approach with new technologies that frankly didn’t exist until recently,” said Vega Cloud founder and CEO, Kris Bliesner. “The hackers are familiar with existing technologies and vulnerabilities, especially when you have employees working outside of the significant infrastructure investments we’ve made in the past.”
Stickley on Security is excited to bring a broader offering to market that, along with education and awareness, addresses technology issues without having to add expensive network equipment or replace end-user computing devices. For a small monthly fee, business stakeholders can rest easy knowing their data is secure and outside of these vulnerable networks.
“Organizations understand cybersecurity awareness coupled with a modern technology approach is more critical than any time we’ve seen before,” adds Stickley. “The world has changed, and even as the pandemic is brought under control, for many employees, working from home will continue indefinitely. Organizations need to think beyond short-term VPN solutions to securely address the numerous risks presented by these long-term remote employees.”
Stickley on Security was founded in 2007 with a plan to provide organizations with meaningful education and awareness solutions that employees and customers would actually embrace. As our founder Jim Stickley points out, it is simple to offer a training course but far more difficult to actually educate the participants. Our goal is to ensure that your customers and employees not only learn about cybersecurity risks, but that they can apply what they learn into their everyday lives and jobs.
Vega Cloud is a Liberty Lake-based technology startup that builds innovative technology solutions for businesses. The Vega Cloud Platform allows customers and partners to connect, automate, manage, and optimize new and existing networks, applications and other multi-cloud elements from a single point of access without having the hassle of using several expensive tools.
