Secure Access

What is it?

Employees need access to their office information from wherever they are, whether working from home, on the road or in an airport lounge. Secure Access provides users with the ability to access key information and services in a secure fashion whilst away from the office.

Why you need it

Access to information on demand is a business necessity and ensures continuity and efficiency in operations.

How it works

There are various methods of allowing employees to access information securely whilst away from the office, the most common being the use of a virtual private network (VPN). A VPN is a private network that usually operates across the Internet and allows an employee to access corporate resources remotely, as if they were working in the office.

Benefits of VPN?s include reducing business costs and utilising a secure and reliable method of accessing information.

Deploying and managing a secure VPN can be a challenge but there are many systems and managed services that can make the process easier.
