Securing Remote User Access to Critical Internal Systems
Remote users – both employees and vendors – typically need access to critical systems to manage data, patch or upgrade systems, etc., in order to keep business operations running smoothly. A quick review of known 2019 data breaches shows both a sharp increase in third party breaches and in the amount of records exposed.
Organizations now face a range of unforeseen circumstances resulting in immediate sweeping needs for organizations to provide remote workers with controlled access to critical systems. Executing with manual and/or patchwork processes in place can dramatically increase risk as well as cause operational headaches for end-users and security practitioners alike.
