The right tools for the job: enabling remote application access

Industry views

Connect remote workers to the right tools – the right way

Despite an increasing number of organisations moving their operations to the public cloud, many still rely on on-premises servers or private clouds to run their day-to-day applications.

But with the continual rise in remote working, employees need easy access to mission- critical on-premises and private cloud applications wherever they are.

Typically, this can be done in one of two ways; either firewall ports are opened to make applications available via the web, or a virtual private network (VPN) is used to provide access.

While both methods have their advantages, inconsistent protection standards mean both can put your security at risk, and unstable connections can cause applications to fail or even corrupt valuable data.

Your applications – available anywhere, anytime

By using our Business Connectivity Service – backed by cutting-edge Microsoft Azure Active Directory Application Proxy technology – you can achieve remote connections to all your internal applications, without the need for a VPN.

And because we use the latest security features such as two-factor authentication and conditional access, you can be safe in the knowledge that your applications are protected – 24/7/365.

What’s more, our Business Connectivity Service can be quickly bolted on to most existing applications, and in most cases doesn’t require applications to be reconfigured.
