Dublin, Ireland, 19th January 2022 – Similarly to other leaders across the globe, the Irish government recommend working from home to fight the spread of COVID-19. Many organisations have already shifted to a more permanent remote working approach, with a recent survey showing more than 90% of Irish executives have hired, or plan to hire people to develop their remote work policy. But with cyber-attacks continuing to rise, how can organisations ensure their remote assets are adequately protected?
Too often, many are still relying on the use of a VPN (Virtual Private Network), but these lack the granular controls needed to allocate users with specific rights and should never be relied upon as a single solution to enable remote working. To provide secure remote access, a flexible solution that can be scaled up or down when required is essential.
Awingu is a leading provider of secure remote access technology that has been recognised by Gartner as a ‘Cool Vendor in Unified Workspaces’. Organisations of all sizes can use Awingu as a cost-effective and simple workplace solution that, unlike other providers, does not require agents or software to be installed on end-user devices. Awingu runs entirely in the browser, where it combines existing applications into one online workspace without hassle, including SaaS and “legacy” Windows or Linux applications.
Awingu firmly believes in a “Zero Trust” security context for businesses. Zero Trust is an all-encompassing strategy involving users, devices, applications, networks and more. The solution enables more secure hybrid working and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies through providing encrypted connections, multi-factor authentication, context-awareness, a full usage audit and eliminating the need to store data locally on devices.
