Home Office is increasing – does the security of the data decrease?
According to a recent BITKOM survey 30% of the companies questioned have employees which operate in full or partially from home. Merely one half of the participants of the survey expect a further rise in home office jobs over the next five to ten years. 35% of workers would even leave their current position to a position with Home Office.
But many companies have concerns about a job outside their own premises. According to the survey 46% of the companies are concerned that the lack of communication with colleagues may be counterproductive. Furthermore, again and again the question arises: what happens to the sensitive information to which employees have access? Firstly, how can a secure access to the data from the outside be granted. Secondly, it must be ensured that there is no possibility for sensitive information to leak, be changed or deleted.
With the software suite VISULOX you can easily solve these problems. Using server-based computing (SBC) engages the employee via the Internet at data center of the company. He can access, in principle from any Internet- or intranet-enabled system, regardless of their location. The user is thus “brought” to the data; they remain protected in the data center and they do not land on user’s workstation. Thus, the establishment of a trouble-prone and insecure VPN tunnel is eliminated.
Afterwards OSGD is the virtual gateway to the Data Center. Access to data and applications is only possible for users who can authenticate accordingly to personal user ID and password. For additional security is a factor authentication added. No separate physical token is necessary, existing resources, such as mobile phone or mail system is used for the transmission of the temporary access pins (TAP). The user gets his applications released only after a successful login onto the system.
Through the module “Cooperation” several people can work together from different locations easily whether for exchanging their knowledge, in teamwork or for an online training.
