Delivering Business Continuity for the End User
Often when the term business continuity is used, it refers to the back end infrastructure, or the data centre. Not to be confused with disaster recovery (DR), business continuity aims to keep things running in situ using high availability features rather than failing over to a secondary set of infrastructure on a bespoke DR site.
That’s all well and good having the infrastructure highly available, but what if the end users are not able to connect as they are office-based and can’t physically make it into the office for whatever reason? You need a solution that allows end users to securely connect form non-corporate devices, and from remote locations.
Continue Working on any Windows-based Device
Secure Remote Worker is a software-only thin client solution, providing a Windows application that runs on the end users device, instantly turning it into a temporary, secure, and centrally managed thin client.
With business continuity in mind, end users can easily launch Secure Remote Worker on their home PC’s. This allows them to connect back to the corporate environments from a secure workspace environment, all under the control of a centralized IT policy. They now have the ability to work from wherever they are using any Windows device.
Secure Remote Worker temporarily locks down the device preventing the user from accessing the underlying operating system, meaning they maintain security while connected to corporate environments. When they have finished working, they simply log out and return back to their native device.
Business Continuity with Secure Remote Worker
Business continuity in the context of Secure Remote Worker, brings together the elements of remote and home working and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Combining these elements allows end users to continue working regardless of their location and using their own Windows device should they be unable to make it into the office.
