Why is Remote Access Security Important?

Numerous companies have users operating beyond their corporate networks, requiring access to internal resources. Remote access offers businesses flexibility, convenience, and outsourcing opportunities that enhance efficiency. However, it also exposes vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit. Sensitive company data outside the organisation's security boundaries becomes susceptible to risks. 

Key reasons

Key reasons for the significance of remote access security include:

  • Authentication Complexity: Remote users in diverse locations often require intricate authentication, necessitating second-factor authentication.
  • Data Encryption: Robust encryption is crucial to safeguard data transmitted across insecure networks to remote users.
  • Device Security: Remote users often operate devices not controlled by system administrators, introducing potential security gaps like data leakage or theft.

Why is remote access often still insecure?

Insecurity in remote access systems can be attributed to several factors, primarily:

  • Use of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs): VPNs connect end-point devices to the corporate network but provide limited visibility into end-point device security, making risk mitigation challenging.
  • Lack of Two-Factor Authentication: Inconsistent implementation of two-factor authentication leaves systems vulnerable to unauthorised access when username and password combinations are leaked or stolen.
  • Complexity of Multiple Solutions: Varied users require diverse remote access solutions, creating multiple security gaps in the network perimeter, each demanding individual security measures.

What does Soliton offer?

Soliton's remote access solutions provide flexible and highly secure options to address remote access requirements. Unlike traditional VPNs, our technology utilizes a controllable proxy, eliminating the necessity of establishing a direct connection between end-point devices and the corporate network while providing granular access control. This approach ensures constant protection of valuable network resources and eliminates the need for extensive (mobile) device management. Users require only a single application that also delivers two-factor authentication.

Throughout the design and development of our solutions, we prioritise affordability, ease of implementation, and maintenance. Equally significant, we strive to strike the ideal balance between security and usability, recognising that security measures can impact user satisfaction.
