If your company is transitioning to a remote workforce in response to COVID-19, you may have encountered the unique challenges associated with providing your work-from-home employees the needed access to company resources and data.
Triofox enables on-premises file server access by leveraging cloud technology with secure remote access to keep your daily operations flowing. Here’s a closer look at secure remote access and how it can expedite your organization’s transition to remote work.
What is Secure Remote Access? A Quick Definition
Secure remote access refers to security policies or strategies taken to protect the transmission of sensitive data when accessed from devices or networks not controlled by the company.
Why Secure Remote Access Matters
As internet-connected devices and digital processes have flourished in the modern work environment, many organizations no longer bind their workforce to a single location. Employees can now access company resources and networks remotely from a constellation of devices and locations.
While this affords many salient benefits to organizations and their workers, it also renders traditional data security measures obsolete. Old ideas about access control via endpoints and passwords fall short in remote environments because they rely on the physical presence of an employee in the office using a pre-secured set of devices.
Secure remote access, on the other hand, ensures anyone who remotely accesses your file server or network is authenticated and uses a secure internet connection. It essentially is another layer of security between your users (or workers) and your data. Before allowing a user to connect to your file server, the application running a secure remote access policy may check for:
- Security: Confirms that connected systems have updated antivirus and firewall, that all patches are present, and that no dangerous processes are running.
- Single Sign-On (SSO) measures: Authenticated users can access certain resources with their initial login credentials.
- NTFS Permissions : Existing permissions on your file server will be applied to remote users.
