A remote access enables users who are working remotely to securely access and use internal applications and access the data that reside in the office data-room, and encrypting all traffic the users send and receive.
The remote access solution does this by creating a tunnel between an organization’s network and a remote user that is “virtually private,” even though the user may be in a public location. This is because the traffic is encrypted, which makes it unintelligible to any eavesdropper. Remote users can securely access and use their organization’s network in much the same way as they would if they were physically in the office. With remote access, data can be transmitted without an organization having to worry about the communication being intercepted or tampered with.
Some advantages of using remote access solution are that it allows companies to:
Give users a simple way to access all applications
Maintain consistent security as users access all their applications
Apply security policies consistently across multiple locations and enforce least-privileged access
Simplify IT infrastructure and reduce costs by using a single cloud-based solution instead of having to buy and manage multiple point products.
