How To Secure Your Data
Coders must avoid security breaches during output/input of data. There are several ways of how to get things done to keep your web development team secure:
This extra security layer is especially significant for people who work on the same computer as the programmers (e.g. QA engineers).
Typically, the data stored on off-site servers is secure as a Cloud service provider is accountable for security of your data.
If the members of your team are using their own laptops to access your network, make sure that you provide security barriers against unauthorized access. For example, protect their accounts with verification (a code send via SMS).
This allows you to ensure that your team members are connecting via your network on their devices, and no one can get passed the barrier that is deployed.
Usually, cyberattacks are targeted to personnel/network vulnerabilities. That is why we recommend you to make sure your remote or in-office web development team is well aware of software being used to access organization network remotely as well as how to keep those laptops or mobile phones safe.

Apart from software security breaches, there are could be also physical breaches. No person can prevent the theft of his or her smartphone. The only thing that he or she can do is to set a timeout code that will ask a user to re-type the password each time he or she accesses the network.
Undoubtedly, remote development teams are efficient and productive. However, work of this kind can pose a threat to security of your data. Whether you are an established corporation or a startup, the same rules apply: it is important to keep your data safe and secure.
