In today's world, remote work is becoming more and more popular, making it essential for employees to access their work computers or devices securely from anywhere. Secure remote access software enables users to access their work computers or devices remotely while maintaining high levels of security.

What is Secure Remote Access?

Secure remote access software allows users to securely access a computer or device from another device, from anywhere, at any time. It has become an essential component of any work-from-home, remote support, or distance learning strategy.

Secure remote access involves using a software tool to create a secure connection between two devices. This connection enables users to access files, applications, and data from another device, such as a home computer, laptop, or mobile phone as if they were sitting at their work computer.

Why Secure Remote Access is Important

One of the most significant advantages of secure remote access is the ability to work remotely. Employees can work from home, while traveling or even from another country, without compromising the security of their work network. This technology has also revolutionized distance learning, allowing students to access lab computers and other resources from home.

But with this increased flexibility comes an increased risk of security breaches.

In February, 2021 CNN reported that “hackers gained access to a Florida water treatment facility by using a dormant remote access software.” The hackers then tried to poison the water supply, but were intercepted by an operator.

With attacks like this on the rise, it’s more important than ever to ensure your team is using a secure remote access solution.
