Secure remote access and cloud connectivity is not only since the pandemic a hot topic for IT Managers and Administrators. Remote access enables colleagues, suppliers, and customers to communicate more effectively, breaking down barriers and driving growth.
Work from home is a magic word since we are living with the pandemic around COVID-19. In 2020 for sure more organizations worldwide recognized the need to have a more flexible working model. Across all departments, companies had to adopt the possibility to work from home. Quite problematic was the challenge for IT departments, which had to grant access for their home workers to their centralized IT software systems. Two magic words came to mind.
- Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
- Secured Remote Access
VPNs are used in most cases to build a secured connection to a private network which allows you to ensure nobody can trace and hack the data stream while communication happens. This can be important when sensitive internal email communication happens which should bot be published or simple to protect an organization communication to be secured against hackers.
Secured Remote Access is required when activities have to be performed in front of an actual screen. In best scenario can help Support Departments to get the exact view of a user’s screen and see first hand how to support them. It can control human interfaces like the mouse (touch screen) or keyboard.
Gaining remote access brought in the past always difficulties with it. Special when it comes to screen sharing and hands-on access for support departments users find themselves lost. A picture tells more than a thousand words and can you remember who many times you heard the words, send a screenshot? But here comes already the first challenge.
- Sending with an email back and forward Q/A delays and screen shares don’t tell the full story
- Screenshots can be large in size which can delay the delivery time
- The support team has not access to all devices or operating systems
- The keyboard layout does not match with the keyboard setting of the actual user
- Internet connectivity is weak
- File transfers to install updates requires screen access and admin rights
