Secure Remote Access for the Distributed Business: Challenges, Trends, and Considerations
Businesses today are defined by a wide variety of distributed work locations, and a diversity of worker types with differing information requirements. At the same time, a number of new information security and privacy regulations-such as PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm Leach Bliley and HIPAA-are being phased in and toughened. These new realities present organizations with a new set of challenges that have begun to pose a serious dilemma. To stay competitive, an organization must provide workers and partners with remote access to sensitive information and applications around the clock. However, many of these new access locations and devices are unsecure and unmanaged.
