Reducing the risk to increase the benefits of remote telework
Security challenges in protecting sensitive data
Telework and remote access, once curiosities in the business world, have rightly become leading business models in the 21st century. Companies reap advantages such as reduced overhead and increased workforce optimization. But their most significant gain is flexibility for business continuity and disaster recovery planning.
When reliance on centralized locations is reduced or removed, employees can continue critical functions from remote locations enabling businesses to run smoothly through hazardous weather, transit strikes, or public health concerns, thus ensuring operations in the most trying of times.
But remote connectivity has remained tantalizingly out of reach for organizations which rely on accessing or creating highly sensitive data for their daily operations. Without secure telework options, remote employees are forced to brave hazardous conditions and risk sensitive data to keep the organization informed and working smoothly.
Introducing SpiderOak's Secure Remote Telework Solution - A Zero-Trust security solution for remote telework
SpiderOak’s Secure Remote Telework is ready to bring telework to companies with challenging security demands. Secure Remote Telework ensures confidentiality, integrity, availability and authority, without trusting infrastructure.
The solution uses a zero-trust approach enabling forced need-to-know thus ensuring valuable information assets are safe and secure regardless of where they are accessed or created.
A Security First Alternative for high risk operations
Unlike Other Remote Telework Solutions
Most commercial telework and collaboration products are designed for operational efficiency, or to squeeze as much productivity and cost savings as possible from the remote workforce. Security is rarely a design principle of these products and is either outsourced to perimeter defense solutions, or reactively retrofitted into an existing install base after a vulnerability has been exploited.
The problem is the centralized nature of perimeter defense. Its designed to protect persons or applications operating behind the perimeter, whereas the protection profile of the teleworker is distributed, they operate well beyond the security frontier.
VPN’s and End-Point management provide some level of protection, but for edge telework that requires the safe, remote communication and collaboration of sensitive/business critical information an entirely new security solution is required to unlock the benefits of telework.
Heavyweight security in a lightweight package
And it does this all while remaining lightweight; Secure Remote Telework needs only client software installed on the user devices and access to the Internet. The backend can be stood up easily and quickly either on-prem, or on AWS servers. An entire team can transition to Secure Remote Telework in moments.
Users download the solution from the SpiderOak website or mobile app stores, install it, create an identity, and are added to their organization’s team. From there they can create their own spaces for sharing files and chatting with colleagues, or join spaces created by others. Secure Remote Telework does not require centralized deployment, meaning that it can be deployed after-the-fact to allow for ad-hoc telework.
Enterprise Level Security For The Tele-Workforce
SpiderOaks Secure Remote Telework is designed to provide enterprise security to the distributed virtual workforce. Unlike traditional systems SpiderOak de-trusts the network, servers, and administrators. Instead of trying to awkwardly extend the security perimeter beyond its effective range, Secure Remote Telework protects each individual user and their data no matter where they are.
It does this with key management for identity, blockchain for irrefutable authority, a powerful policy engine for managing role- and attribute-based access controls, and finally, endpoint-to-endpoint encryption for data. When the policy engine is configured to precisely reflect the desired authority and access scheme for an organization, The solution is then capable of providing a highly secured virtual enclave supporting team collaboration activities, secure file storage, and secure file transmission suitable for even the most critical business documents, meetings, or topics of discussion.
