Unprecedented Security in OneVuex
Security that Withstands System Intrusions, Malware and Viruses
April 4, 2020
We’ve all seen the headlines. Several major companies and government agencies have been hacked. As reported by CNet (Brown, Shelby, “Marriott Data Breach Exposed over 5M People: Latest major security hack,” CNet, 31 March 2020), “Hackers can take advantage of any vulnerability, like a health crisis, loopholes in institutions’ servers, or flawed security protection to steal your most personal and sensitive information: credit and debit card numbers, Social Security data, your birth date and maybe even where you live.”
Things may only become worse as domestic and foreign “intruders” realize our vulnerabilities while we focus our attentions on the healthcare crisis. It’s only getting easier because more employees are working from home and other remote locations. IT departments can’t effectively secure the increased level of information flowing from on-premises or cloud environments which opens the door for less secure channels and devices to be invaded.
OneVuex, integrated with specialized Microsoft Security eliminates these challenges. OneVuex provides app configurations that are invisible to the internet, accessed through a secure web browser, offering multiple layers of security.
OneVuex specifically configures the Microsoft Defender Security Center, integrating Azure Security, Defender Security, Office 365 Security, Safe Attachment, Safe URL, Automated Investigations, Machine Learning & Investigations, Behavioral Analytics, Software Investigations and provides an Execution Summary so you can monitor your entire operation. Permissions and alerts can be customized, so you can spot an issue before it takes root, safeguarding your operations without exposing the entire organization to intrusion or system failures. All security systems work together to give your business the best possible security solution – ground to cloud.

Working, Teaching and Learning From Home – The New Normal
April 4, 2020
With the healthcare pandemic rising and people all over the world being asked to stay in place, more employees, faculty and students are required to “carry on” from home. According to Forbes (Valet, Vicky. “Working From Home During the Coronavirus Pandemic: What You Need to Know.” Forbes, 12 March 2020), “As coronavirus cases have surged, so have the number of companies asking their employees to work from home, with 46% of American businesses having implemented remote-work policies as of mid-February. While telecommuting has become more mainstream in recent years—the remote workforce grew 159% between 2005 and 2017—when just 3.4% of Americans work from home at least half of the time, it’s not unreasonable to think that many of the employees who have been asked to work from home due to the coronavirus may have little to no experience doing so, or at least not for an extended period of time.”
Multiple other companies have joined the ranks as well as schools and universities across the country. Campuses like University of California San Diego and Duke University have emptied as students, faculty and staff now operate from home. But are they, businesses and the millions of employees around the country prepared to operate safely and securely? One virtual meeting platform recently came under scrutiny. As reported by Business Insider (School districts, including New York City’s, start banning Zoom because of online security issues,” Strauss, Valerie, Business Insider, 4 April, 2020) not only has the FBI issued warnings about the hi-jacking of online classrooms and teleconferences, but school systems like the New York City Department of Education which runs the largest school district in the country banned the use of Zoom and suggested using Microsoft Teams instead. Clark County Public Schools in Nevada has also banned Zoom and is looking at other options.
The question is, where do the vulnerabilities end? Is it just your virtual meeting platform that’s the potential problem? What about VPN applications that allow home bound workers to access their intranet sites? Then there are mobile phone networks, office and home-based internet connections, email accounts, electronic file sharing systems, the devices themselves and other, now growing, access points for sharing and collaboration. Will businesses and schools become like the little Dutch boy, plugging the holes of the dike, one finger at a time?
The solution is a technology that integrates all the systems you need to operate your business or school as a single solution with specialized security covering all connected systems, monitoring all access points, with alerts and mechanisms in place to stop intrusions, malware and viruses before they get started. That’s what OneVuex provides.

OneVuex offers multiple layers of security by specifically configuring the Microsoft Defender Security Center, integrating Azure Security, Defender Security, Office 365 Security, Safe Attachment, Safe URL, Automated Investigations, Machine Learning & Investigations, Behavioral Analytics, Software Investigations and provides an Execution Summary so you can monitor your entire operation.
