Contextual policy-based access with Amazon WorkSpaces

Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed, secure cloud desktop service. With Amazon WorkSpaces, your users get a fast, responsive desktop of their choice that they can access anywhere, anytime, from any supported device.

Amazon WorkSpaces supports a minimum of 3 authentication requirements including a directory unique registration code, username and password. This can be enhanced with MFA and client-side corporate certificates. Additionally, customers can “whitelist” IP address so that users can only connect from known networks.

For many customers these services included authentication mechanisms are sufficient to protect access to corporate Amazon WorkSpaces. For enterprise customers and those with a more advanced security requirements there is a need for additional protection. deviceTRUST offers customers of Amazon WorkSpaces the ability to apply policy based, contextually aware access controls to user desktops and applications. Occurring immediately after user authentication, deviceTRUST enforces the more advanced security requirements for your enterprise.

Double-Hop support

To meet the corporate regulatory requirements, some business applications are not allowed to be installed on Amazon WorkSpaces, only on the on-premise environment. To access these business applications, users need to connect from within Amazon WorkSpaces back to the on-premise environment. To meet this requirement, the context of the users’ endpoint needs to be available to Amazon WorkSpaces and within the on-premise environment.
