Delivering Security for Remote Environments

Now that virtual desktop and other remotely delivered environments, users can now work from outside the corporate office environment. Having the freedom to work from home, customer sites, other office locations, or even the local coffee shop enables end user freedom delivering increased end user productivity. But what about the question of security?

How does the IT department remote working and still maintain corporate levels of security, ensuring the end user device is secure and isn’t going to compromise data security?

When working from the office environment, security and compliance is easily achievable. But what about remote working or just an end user working on their home PC. These user owned devices will be used to connect to, and access privileged company information, applications, and systems. How can IT manage this way of working and ensure that these devices are secure and offer no risk to the corporate environment when users are not in the office?

How does Secure Remote Worker Deliver ?

With ThinKiosk installed, and when an end user switches to Secure Remote Worker mode, they are logged out of their current Windows session on the local device, and logged into a local ThinKiosk account on the same device. Perfect for machines that will not be domain connected, like home PC’s ThinKiosk Secure Remote Worker polices are applied, Windows Explorer is removed and the ThinKiosk Secure Workspace UI is launched in its place.

The ThinKiosk Secure Workspace provides an intuitive user interface, with a familiar Windows look and feel. Users are still able to configure which networks they connect to, along with keyboard configurations and other customisations. Within the workspace they will find all their icons for connecting to their remote environments – all preconfigured by IT, and ready to launch.

When they have finished working on their remote environment the end user simply logs out, which essentially switches off Secure Remote Worker mode. They are logged out of the secure environment and returned to their local Windows session, where they can log in again and continue working on the local device.
