Running local services can often be complex. Having to decide how to give remote and local access, especially where not all applications run within a web browser or are not suitable for hosting directly online. Most published applications run within a web browser, and so whilst a portal login approach may work, many services require a VPN or VDI session, complicating the remote access position.
Location, location, location
Running a service whilst the user is local and on the corporate LAN mitigates and reduces many risks; in this case access using a username and password may be both sufficient and desirable to maximise productivity with minimal disruption for accessing data and services. That same user in an external location, working from home or from a partner site requires a higher level of security and control.
We are not all the same
Giving access to locally hosted applications and cloud services, whist the user is on the LAN, is a fixed requirement for most organisations. The key question is: should users retain access when they leave the office and how can you limit who can access what application or service based on location. This is where risk based authentication, our intelligent solution, becomes invaluable.
Giving access to a varied and complex arrangement of applications and services is a challenge for most businesses. Providing the an SSL-VPN is used, and the applications to integrate with are accessed via a browser, our Unified Sign-on portal will give a single point of access for LAN and Cloud applications.
Our adaptive authentication policy engine allows a fast and hassle free response to service changes or new legislation based requirements. With new legislation changing requirements on location, and mandatory 2FA for a number of services, AuthControl Sentry enable you to quickly respond to changing requirements and rules on data access and authentication procedures.
