With the advent of Coronavirus (COVID-19), employers are facing new challenges – what happens to my operations under quarantine and how can I enable as many employees as possible to continue working from home at short notice?
Employees working within the company network are used to unrestricted access to all necessary applications and resources. When they are located outside the corporate network, compliance requirements typically prevent access to business critical applications and data. However, working from the home office is now an essential requirement for companies.
To maintain a productive workforce, employees working from home should have access to all business-critical applications and data, just as they would within the company network. In this case however, the employee accesses his or her virtual workplace externally and corporate IT has no information about where and what the employee accesses from.
This results in a major security and compliance risk for the company, as the employee’s role within the company is not sufficient to identify and validate the employee’s home office as such.
This is exactly what deviceTRUST offers – an easy-to-implement solution for implementing these different access scenarios with its contextual security in accordance with all requirements. With the help of deviceTRUST Home Office Identification and Validation, every employee can use their home office very easily and in compliance with data protection regulations. In addition, it ensures that access from the home office complies with security, compliance and regulatory requirements.
If an employee accesses his virtual workplace, all requirements for a secure device are checked. If a used device does not meet these requirements, access to the virtual workplace can be denied (conditional access). This is also possible at any time while working with the virtual workplace.
Home Office Validation
Once an employee has validated his or her home office, it is (anonymously) checked each time the virtual workplace is accessed. If the employee is in his home office, he gets access to all business critical applications and resources as within the corporate network. If the user is not in his home office, business-critical applications to which access from outside is denied are blocked for the employee (Conditional Application Access).
deviceTRUST enables employees to work productively very quickly from their home office with their existing virtual workplace and ensures that all security compliance and regulatory requirements are met.
