Secure Remote Access
for Your Workforce

Empower remote employees and vendors
to stay productive and secure

challengeChallenge

People working remotely expect the same access to systems they have while in the office, but IT teams have less visibility and control.

challengeDanger

Remote workers are more likely to engage in risky cyber behavior and more vulnerable to cyber attacks that impact your entire organization.

challengeSolution

Privileged Access Management (PAM) provides central, policy-based controls that ensure remote workers stay secure while staying productive.

Don’t let a remote workforce increase your privileged account risk

Remote work has become the norm. IT leaders must secure a
broader, more diverse attack surface than ever before. Cyber risks increase, especially when workers are temporary or new to working from home.

VPN and multi-factor authentication help protect applications and systems on your corporate network, but they don’t cover all privileged account scenarios. Remote workers also use privileged credentials to access cloud applications such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service/web apps, and they need additional security controls.

See how PAM ensures people can access the systems and data they need while adhering to security best practices.

Allow administrators privileged access
from remote locations

Make sure privileged credentials for your most sensitive applications, databases, root accounts, and other systems are secured in a central vault and accessible to trusted administrators no matter where they work. For added oversight, track when administrators check credentials in and out and set time limits for temporary access when necessary. Session management controls such as workflow approval, dual control, keystroke logging, and session recording add an extra layer of control.

Confirm remote worker identities regardless of device

Remote employees and third parties may use their own workstations, including laptops and mobile devices, in different situations. You can create a unified identity for each employee across all operating systems and environments, on-premise and in the cloud. That way, you’ll know who they are when they access privileged accounts, regardless of the device they use.

Make it simple for IT teams to configure and secure remote sessions

To support users working remotely, provide IT teams tools to navigate different connection protocols, such as RDP and SSH, inject credentials, and interact with privileged sessions from start to finish.

multiple sessions from a central dashboard. >

Reduce the temptation to share or reuse passwords

Did you know 49% of IT staff and 51% of individuals say they share passwords with colleagues to access business accounts?
In a remote situation, under pressure to get their jobs done, the temptation to skirt password policies is even higher.

With PAM, users don’t need to remember passwords. In fact, they don’t need to see them at all. A PAM solution generates complex passwords, rotates them automatically, and relies on proxies to connect systems, taking the human element out of the equation.

Implement a least privilege policy to prevent attacks from escalating

Remote workers are likely to download new or unknown software and access web apps to stay productive. If users have local administrator rights and unintentionally download malicious software, they invite cyber criminals into your entire network.

You can use role-based access control (RBAC) to configure baseline and default access for each remote worker on internal and web applications with Cloud Access Controller (CAC). You can even determine what actions they can take, such as which button can be clicked, which text can be read, which form can be filled, and much more.

Increase oversight of remote employees and third parties

Remote workers will need access to resources on your corporate network as well as in the cloud. They typically need stronger oversight than in-house workers.

For cloud applications, Cloud Access Controller (CAC) helps you employ RBAC for remote employees and third parties just as it can for internal staff. You can record cloud sessions without any software installed on remote machines. Plus, you can set time-based access to expire on a certain date.

Know the signs of potential insider threats from remote workers

It’s not unusual to see remote workers online at night or from unexpected locations. However, activities like a sudden increase in privileged account use by certain users or a high number of privileged accounts accessed all at once should trigger alerts and encourage additional protections like rotating passwords.

New compliance standards are emerging, and audits are becoming more frequent and intense. Compliance bodies are now mandating a higher level of responsibility for security leaders, executives, and Boards of Directors.

Virtually every organization that handles data must abide by security compliance requirements. If you handle any type of personal, financial, or health information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance or face significant financial penalties and public embarrassment. If you are seeking government contracts, you must receive a stamp of approval from security auditors to be successful.

Get the answers to these important questions:

  • What data is on my systems, and will it still comply with compliance and regulations if employees leave the office and work remotely?
  • Does it matter if my users are local administrators?
  • How can I sustain a business as usual approach and maintain security?
  • Will a zero trust strategy work?
