Enabling secure remote access for BYOD and personally-owned Windows devices.
What is Secure Remote Worker?
Secure Remote Worker is a software-only solution that is installed and runs on an end user's personal Windows device delivering a secure workspace environment for remote access.
Secure Remote Access
Enables remote and work-at-home users to securely connect to a corporate environment and access apps and desktops using their personally owned devices.
Secure Digital Workspace
Secure Remote Worker creates a temporary, managed, security compliant, software-based, secure digital workspace on an end user's PC without overwriting local files or data.
Simplified User Onboarding
Eliminate logistical problems associated with remote working - workers simply use their own (pre-validated) personal device, download the app, launch it, and switch to 'worker mode'.

Why Secure Remote Worker?
Connect from Personal Devices
Turn a personal device into a secure, locked down, security compliant endpoint without needing to reboot, dual-boot or boot from an external USB drive.
Secure Remote Worker maintains PCI compliance by providing coverage for the PCI DSS requirements applicable to the end point device.
Simple & Fast Deployment
As Secure Remote Worker is a software only solution, end users simply download the app, launch it and are connected securely to the corporate environment in minutes!
Ensure the environment is configured securely, and is kept up to date with centralized management using the ThinScale Management Platform.
Removes Logistical Complexities
As a software-only solution, there is no need to ship devices to end users. They simply use their own device, download the software and they are up and running in minutes!
End Point Protection
Ensure users' personal devices meet required security polices before connecting to the corporate network with a comprehensive set of endpoint protection features.
Secure Remote Worker Key Features
Endpoint Validation Tool
Inspect the end user's endpoint device prior to on-boarding - run a report on the device detailing what it’s running, patch levels and remediation required before granting access.
Locks down the personal device
By enabling 'worker mode', Secure Remote Worker launches a temporary secure workspace environment on the user's device, completely locking the user out from their underlying Windows OS.
Windows Patch Management
The Windows Patch Management feature within Secure Remote Worker ensures the user's personal device meets required patching standards and policies before allowing them to connect.
USB Device Blocking
USB devices are often seen as one of the main causes of security breaches and data leakage within an organization. Secure Remote Worker prevents users from accessing these devices.
Application Execution Prevention
Application Execution Prevention adds an additional layer of security by preventing unauthorized applications from running while Secure Remote Worker is running.
Service Execution Prevention
Service Execution Prevention ensures device security by allowing you to control which Windows services are allowed to run while Secure Remote Worker 'worker mode' is running.
Secure Remote Worker Use Cases
Deliver multiple business benefits by easily, efficiently, and securely enabling remote working, work-at-home programs and “bring your own device” initiatives.
Enable end users to use their own Windows devices, while maintaining security and compliance.
Deliver flexible working to your end users allowing them to work remotely or from home.
Maintain productivity levels even when end users cannot make it into their physical workplace.
How is it licensed?
Who is Secure Remote Worker designed for?
With its centralized management platform, Secure Remote Worker enables IT to manage the secure workspace environment from a single console. With the Endpoint Validation Tool, IT can quickly check the device before allowing it to connect ensuring devices are always secure, up to date, and compliant.
For an organization deploying Secure Remote Worker, they will significantly reduce the cost of hardware acquisition and support. Not only that they will appeal to a far wider workforce audience, tapping into a greater knowledge pool that previously would not be possible.
Secure Remote Worker allows an end user to use their personally owned Windows PC or laptop to connect securely to their work environment. As Secure Remote Worker is just a Windows based application, it is unobtrusive and does not overwrite or reboot the device. They simply launch and go!
“End users don’t even realize they are working on VDI. It looks like they are working the same way as they would on a PC at home.”

"We could continue to waste our time with our current solution or we could deploy the ThinScale ThinKiosk solution. It used to take an hour and a half or so to configure a thin client with HP, but with ThinKiosk it takes about 2 minutes, even if you have the write filter enabled!"
