Data protection while working from home

Working from home can brings flexibility and freedom– but it can also come with its own challenges. One of the biggest challenges facing businesses and public organisations is that they often mix up security and volume. It is not how much confidential paper is produced but what is produced, a breach can happen because one handwritten note is incorrectly disposed of.


So many businesses and organisations have introduced a working from home paperless policy, which by it very nature brings into focus the challenge of security verses volume. A paperless policy is that exactly that, less paper, very few businesses and public organisations are paper free.

Businesses and public organisations need a policy in place for the paper they are producing at home, albeit being less than in the office.  At Avena we have developed a solution that can help you and your business mitigate the risk of what is produced on paper.

Our RemoteShred solution ensures that you can provide your remote workers with a facility to correctly dispose of confidential documents with the added benefit of only paying for what you use, regardless of the different requirements of each remote worker.

The patent pending technology is unique to Avena, this simple and innovative system has been designed to suit the ever-changing world we live in.

If you have home workers and would like to discuss how we can help you keep your data protected while working from home, please contact one of our specialists today.
