Anytime, Anywhere Secure Remote & Mobile Access to Business Applications
In today’s business environment, different business units, project groups, partners, contractors and guests all require secure remote access. What’s more, they require different levels of remote access and often require a user experience tailored to their unique requirements and devices. Mobile devices and BYOD present additional challenges in providing on-demand connections for native mobile applications in a manner that keeps data secure in the corporate network and limits exposure.
Most VPNs fall short of these requirements; in contrast, Array secure remote access solutions provide greater levels of security, a greater range of access methods, a broader range of device support and the ability to provide differentiated, identity-based access tailored to the needs of multiple communities of interest. In addition, with Array’s secure mobile access solution, sensitive data remains protected on the enterprise network and is accessible anytime, anywhere, so Bring Your Own Device becomes an advantage rather than a threat to security.
Benefits of Array Secure Remote Access
Minimize Attack Vectors
Reduce the number of network entry points for malicious activity by consolidating secure remote and mobile access onto a single, scalable gateway.
Achieve and demonstrate a higher-degree of compliance with policies defined once for all users, and applied consistently from a single secure access platform.
Limit network exposure and establish accountability by selectively enabling Web, BYOD, remote desktop, application-specific or network-level access with end-to-end security and reporting.
Fully partitioned and customizable virtual portals drive increased productivity by supporting the unique needs of employees, partners, guests and customers, regardless of the device they choose to use.
Mobilize Your Business
Enable secure access from enterprise-owned managed devices and unmanaged personal devices, including a range of laptops, PCs, tablets and smart phones, while eliminating data leakage.
Unlike legacy VPNs that require clients on remote devices, SSL VPNs need only a common Web browser to access productivity-enhancing files and business applications. Ubiquitous SSL and comprehensive security means employees, partners, contractors and guests can utilize any device – personal, public or managed – to gain access to authorized corporate resources. Administrators may configure Web access, network-level access or access to specific client-server or thin client applications, and may configure varying degrees of access based on device type, location, security posture and roles within the organization.
Array secure remote and mobile access solutions provide security for data at rest and data in motion. Host-checking and end-point security scan the health and posture of remote devices before and after granting access, actively adapting policies based on IT-defined parameters to prevent data leakage. 2048-bit encryption and comprehensive AAA protect data in transit, ensure that only authenticated users have access to authorized resources and provide detailed audit reports for compliance and accountability. Moreover, integrated SSL VPN firewall capability and a reverse-proxy architecture provide additional layers of separation and protection between remote devices and the corporate network.
Access Desktop, Virtual and Native Mobile Applications
With Array’s secure remote and mobile access solutions, desktop and virtual applications are published to mobile devices in a way that prevents sensitive business data from leaving the corporate network – preventing data leakage. In addition, Array’s lightweight mobile API can be integrated with native mobile apps to create app-specific mobile VPNs. By connecting at the application level, smart mobile devices are kept off the network and corporate data is only exposed to individual applications. Alternatively, Array’s mobile VPN can be used to provide on-demand encrypted connectivity for mobile devices.
Use Any Personal Device
Though BYOD is in the limelight due to explosive growth in mobile computing, it is not limited to mobile devices; bring-your-own-device also includes access from home PCs and personal laptops. In addition to supporting iOS and Android mobile devices, the solution also supports remote desktop and application access from any Windows or MacOS computer. Deploying DesktopDirect, businesses gain a complete solution that enables mobile access, drives productivity and mitigates the effects of business disruptions, in addition to supporting freedom of choice for employees.
Performance & Scalability
Applications run fast in the office, but delivering them over the Internet is a different story. Array secure remote access solutions boast the lowest possible latency for delivering files and applications to mobile users anytime, anywhere. Multiple acceleration technologies and a scalable, 64-bit multi-core architecture combine to effortlessly support from hundreds to tens of thousands of concurrent users on a single system while maintaining a premium, productivity-enhancing end-user experience.
