WFH and Always On VPN
Employees must have privacy in their own homes.  Business does not have a right to force employees to modify equipment at home.  However, business can and should use Always On VPN (and two factor authentication) on company assets to protect connection to corporate information.  I've also heard companies are using VDI to substantually reduce the risks, creating a virtual machine so that data never leaves the company, which reminds me of green on black  days (all things are circular). Some other proposed alternatives would cost too much money, invade privacy, and be nearly impossible to audit IMHO.

Re: Wifi at home

Agree with you here Paul. Companies need to take ownership over their employees home Wi-Fi security. I think they can drop in the hardware, as long as it's managed from the cloud and authenticates against one of the newer Cloud RADIUS servers.

Wifi at home
Thats all great and all, but your regular Jill/Joe user is still very technically illiterate, dont put the burden on them. Unless the company drops hardware in forget it. if you have Corp devices always on VPN or some sort of service like Palo Prism-a. BYOD should be treated like corp unless you have some sandboxing application that abstracts and virtualizes the app (citrix, etc). Yeah still cant go cheap and consummer in this day and age security vendors still have no proper solution just snake oil.

Nice article
Securing a home network is a major concern now, as the majority is doing WFH.

Enterprise security at home
Keeping an eye on the prospect of using enterprise level security for remote employees. The big problem with using enterprise security at home today in my opinion is the lack of infrastructure available for Home Users. Hopefully Fortinet's new partnership with Linksys will improve the options available

Good Start to Eliminating Credential Theft
I think educating employees on the dangers of credential theft is a great start on how we can better protect our networks from data theft. The use of an Enterprise-Grade network for remote workers can help achieve that and further secure networks through a stronger authentication method (like EAP-TLS).
