HOW WE HELP
Network access controls give organizations advanced protection. Manage user permissions to business applications, resources, and data based on employee responsibility — whether they work on-site or remotely.
Securing the integrity of the network is essential, given that users often use multiple devices to undertake their work. Extending protection to laptops, tablets, and smartphones alike is vital.
Organizations rely on many web-based and internet-focused applications as part of their IT environment. As a result, users require protection whenever they connect to the internet, not just to connect to the organization’s on-premises resources.
Secure Remote Access combines several security features to ensure only authorized access to business assets and guard against stolen or leaked sensitive information. These features include - but are not limited to - Remote Access VPN, multi-factor authentication (2FA), and Identity & Access Management (IAM).
With the number of global remote users sharply increasing in recent years, organizations are strengthening their security infrastructure with Secure Remote Access tools and adopting revised best practices for mobile users in remote locations.
There are many ways to implement Secure Remote Access, but there are four key focus areas. Creating a cybersecurity policy at your organization will make your remote employees your first line of defense and ensure they only use company-owned devices. Choosing a Secure Remote Access security product like NordLayer is the next step — make sure to use an adaptive security solution that tailors to the needs of your business. Utilize password management and multi-factor authentication to protect devices used and provide an additional layer of security to the network.
Once all is in place, it’s crucial to replenish cybersecurity knowledge across the company with compulsory cybersecurity training for new starters and regular refresher sessions for your existing staff.
Secure Remote Access can help avoid sensitive data and assets from being in the wrong hands. Cybercriminals can take any form and look to acquire information for personal gain, hold to ransom, or leak into the public domain. It’s more important than ever to safeguard your organization’s remote workforce against an attack where possible, and Secure Remote Access is an excellent place to start.
