How to Work from Home With Outcomex and Cisco
Helping our customers is at the core of what we do at Outcomex, which is why we choose to partner with Cisco. As of right now, COVID-19 is requiring more people to work from home.

To Collaborate, Cisco is providing:
- Cisco Webex Teams and Meetings
- Cisco and Vbrick
To ensure security, Cisco also provides:
- Cisco Umbrella
- Duo Security
- Cisco AnyConnect
Cisco Webex Teams and Meetings

The offer includes:
Live streaming, slides, chat, and Q&A

Protect your Team Anywhere and on Any Device
Cisco also has free security offerings for remote employees. They are providing 90 days free licenses and expanded usage counts at no extra charge for three of their key security technologies that are designed to protect remote workers anywhere, anytime and on any device.
Cisco Umbrella protects users from malicious Internet destinations whether they are on or off the network. Because it is delivered from the cloud, Umbrella makes it easy to protect users everywhere in minutes.
Duo Security enables organizations to verify users’ identities and establish device trust before granting access to applications. By employing a zero-trust model, it decreases the attack surface and reduces risk.
Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client empowers employees to work from anywhere on company laptops or personal mobile devices. It also provides the visibility and control security teams need to identify who and which devices are accessing their infrastructure.
Existing AnyConnect customers can exceed their user limit to support an increase in remote workers, and new customers can access a free license.
