To remain productive and collaborate efficiently, remote users require access to a company’s resources from anywhere and at any time, whether they are using a company-issued laptop, a personal computer, or a mobile device. IT departments face the challenge of providing secure mobility to an exponentially growing number of mobile devices, while ensuring that the company’s data is safe and protected.
Choosing the Right Remote Access Solution for Your Organization
When choosing a remote access solution, organizations are faced with a variety of challenges, such as how to:
- Establish granular corporate security policies and protect critical company assets.
- Enable employee productivity by providing anywhere, anytime secure collaboration both within and across organizations.
- Provide users with flexibility and choice in terms of access methods, applications, and mobile endpoints, namely supporting securely employee-owned mobile devices securely.
- Ensure business continuity in the event of natural disasters or unforeseen events.
- Meet industry compliance requirements and legislation mandates, such as the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) and Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards.
Three Criteria to Consider:
Security – IT teams need to be able to enforce security policies with maximum flexibility and granularity for each connection. Each policy needs to dynamically adapt to a user’s unique security posture, location, workgroup, and connecting device. A secure remote access solution should also enable IT administrators to minimize risks of leaving corporate data behind during or after a remote user session.
Connectivity – Workforces are becoming increasingly mobile. In turn, global IT administrators need to enable safe and productive remote access over a broad range of connection media. A secure remote access solution should ensure that remote users remain seamlessly connected when roaming between different networks, both in and out of the office, or transitioning through hibernation or standby. The solution must also automatically select the most optimal network access point and adapt its tunneling protocol to the most efficient method for the user’s specific connections and application sets.
Mobility – Enterprise workers are often avid consumers who follow the smartphone and tablet PC trends. With the proliferation of mobile devices, such as Apple iPhones, Android smartphones, tablet PCs and Windows Mobile handhelds, IT administrators need to enable users to securely connect from various endpoints and operating systems. A strong solution should offer a large array of supported endpoints and ensure that the VPN connection is persistent, consequently enhancing productivity, promoting collaboration and boosting employee satisfaction.
