Achieving Secure Remote Working – at scale
There’s no doubting that the demand for remote access has grown exponentially as a result of Covid-19 – and it’s very likely that for many organisations, it will be a lasting change.
Remote access technologies have changed significantly from the days of VPN’s. tokens and complex, often home-grown, systems to manage identity and access control. As applications began moving to the cloud, extending the perimeter to the internet, the demand to work from anywhere and from any device, grew. But security was an still issue, the perimeter was becoming impossible due to lack of effective security. Whilst old methods may have worked well when fewer employees needed remote access, and organisations were primarily still in the network-centric world, in the age of cloud and mobility, application access needs to be independent of the network. In short, if you haven’t already done it, now is the time to rethink remote working.
