Remodeling the Future of Connections: Remote Access Management

Published on 27 June 15
The world of business has long gone mobile. With thousands of employees nowadays working remotely either full-time or part-time, organizations of different sizes are able to provide the necessary flexibility to their employees.

Some of the most evident results are, of course, improved collaboration and communication, which are the two aspects where mobile tech and web apps seem to have made the greatest impact. Although widely praised as a way to boost employeesâ productivity and improve mission-critical processes, such an extensive mobility has a certain degree of risk too - data security.

Security challenge

Weâve witnessed Target, eBay, Subway, even Sony and many others becoming victims of hackers last year. Sometimes, the attack was as simple as a third party accessing the companiesâ data through infected device, causing millions of people to dread about their personal information. An alarming fact is that the examples above got all the media coverage, while small business are even more at risk because hackers count on the fact that owners wonât pay for the security services.

This is why more CTOs/CIOs should be concerned about the security systems they use to regulate remote access to company data. As explained by SecureLinkâs SecureLink's insightful resources, most companies seem unprepared for facing possible online threats, let alone recovering from them. Of course, given the increased sophistication of malevolent attacks, the risk only becomes greater as the number of platforms used to access company network increases.

Secure solutions for remote access management

Instead of an outdated, VPN audit and monitoring which covers only the basics, advanced solutions for managing remote access keep a detailed log about every entry, connects it with users, monitors all file share and all data is stored and easily accessible. The platforms are cloud based, which means that no additional software is required for customers, and it comes with a live monitoring support which is a great addition. Basically, with this service you are not just securing your connections and providing safety to your clients, but you are also cutting costs on your personal IT service. Thatâs merely a start, if you click on the link above, you can go through all of the components yourself. If you do so, you will probably come up with the same conclusion as I did:

Clearly, most security risks in business organizations could be avoided simply by educating IT staff on the dangers of remote access, as well as on the best practices regarding solutions to be implemented. If you own a business and you provide a service to people online, you may want to consider replacing your outdated IT components with those that both support mobility and at the same time ensure maximum security.
