What is Secure Remote Access?

Secure Remote Access is a comprehensive security solution which can typically include modules such as:

  • Zero trust network access: provides secure remote access solutions to applications and services based on defined access control policies.
  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA): in addition to a password, users must also provide an additional piece of evidence, such as a registered device or biometric.
  • Role-based access controls:only workers with specific roles can remotely access resources relevant for their jobs.
  • Single sign-on (SSO): users only need to input their password once per remote access session, even when switching between applications. This lowers the risk of typing in passwords on malicious portals.
  • Virtual Private Network: creates an encrypted tunnel between an end-user and a business resource to secure traffic on unprotected channels such as the public internet.

Why is it important to have a secure remote access

Having a Secure Remote Access Solution in place will help you reduce the risks associated with having workers connect to IT resources over high-risk connections, such as the public internet. If companies employ bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and the employees’ devices are not centrally managed, the exposure risk increases.

The transition to remote working initiated by the pandemic lockdowns has also brought a 400% surge in cyberattacks compared to pre-pandemic levels, as most businesses did not have adequate remote access security policies in place.

Why Choose Cloud Desktops as Secure Remote Access Solution

A holistic approach to providing Secure Remote Access capabilities is to integrate the security features into a wider Cloud Desktop solution. A Cloud Desktop hosts applications and data onto a cloud-based server which can be accessed by users through a web browser.

V2 Cloud solution has helped organizations improve their security posture by providing remote access features such as:

  • Cloud resources, data, and applications can be accessed instantly on a web browser or desktop app.
  • Seamless experience for remote, on-site, and hybrid users using single sign-on
  • Protect sensitive data by hosting them in a 24/7 monitored environment
  • Provide multiple levels of authentication when accessing applications and data

Cloud Desktops Inherent Security Benefits

By design, Cloud Desktops deliver secure access benefits to support remote working. These include:

  • Off-device data storage: in a Cloud Desktop solution, all data is stored in the Cloud and does not reside on the end-user device. In the event that the device is compromised, the data will not be affected.
  • Centralized management: by using Cloud Desktop as your secure remote access solution, a central IT function creates and manages user accounts, providing and revoking access to relevant resources and enforcing policies for groups of users.
  • Daily Backups: V2 Cloud performs daily backups of your Cloud data, such that in the event of a failure, you can simply revert to a safe copy.
  • End-to-end encryption: in a Cloud Desktop solution, communication between user devices and cloud resources are fully encrypted, meaning that nobody without authorization is able to access any information
