Always On Access (AOA), powered by Stealth™

Secure your remote workforce in the COVID-19 crisis

COVID-19 is disrupting business operations on a global scale, forcing governments and businesses to remotely support their employees, contractors, and supply chains. Business continuity and contingency planning demands that you provide always-on, anytime, anywhere access to vital resources, data, and applications. Expanding remote access via traditional VPNs, however, increases risk and expands the attack surface. Hackers are already taking advantage of the upheaval to infiltrate company networks and steal information.

Agilient acknowledges that traditional virtual private networks (VPNs) have been an essential part of an organisation’s security strategy for years. Perimeter-based VPNs are deployed to provide secure, remote access to corporate resources. However, the challenge is that once users are connected, they have access to the entire network, putting sensitive data at risk. VPNs fail to provide both the connectivity and the security that companies need to ensure business continuity. They are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks, lack the granular control that is crucial for securing access over untrusted networks, and allow hackers lateral movement once inside a private network. In short, VPN services are too lenient and fail to protect your business in a world where data and applications must be made available beyond your organization’s perimeters.

VPNs leave you at risk for a breach because they:

  • Do not provide granular control, especially on untrusted networks
  • Do not allow for scalability to tens of thousands often because VPN concentrators have significant limitations
  • Do not prevent hackers who pass a VPN gateway from engaging in lateral movement inside the private network
  • Do not encrypt data from the VPN gateway to internal assets, making data on the wire vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks

Put simply, VPNs do not deliver the Zero Trust security that is critical to provide connectivity and prevent cyberattacks in the new business model landscape being defined by the COVID-19 crisis. Rather, they represent a single point of failure within any organisation. Even when VPNs are working at their fullest potential, they leave your network vulnerable.

In the midst of this upheaval, Always On Access, powered by Stealth™ and distributed by Agilient is a proven, end-to-end security solution that has been securing remote workforces for years – even for users relying on untrusted devices and networks. And the best news of all is that through the Always On Access capability, your organization can replace vulnerable VPNs with Zero Trust security now, precisely when you need secure access.
