Security first in the home office

Since March 2020, the subject of working from home is more topical than ever before. However, one important aspect must not be neglected: Security of sensitive company data.

What are the potential security risks when working from home?

A complete workplace "migrates" to the home office. Company sensitive data moves out of the business premises and into the living rooms or the private offices of employees. External access to the company network is required, and employees use their personal internet connection for this. Free instant messaging services and free conferencing or video platforms are often used for the exchange. This creates large security gaps, and the control over confidential data is lost.

How is secure collaboration in the home office possible?

With the unified communications & CTI software suite ProCall Enterprise, sensitive communication data (e.g. chat, journal data, etc.) is kept where it belongs: in your company network. In order for you to have access to this information from your home, there are several variants in which ProCall Enterprise can be integrated without any problems:

  • VPN (Virtual Private Network) ) Connection: A virtual, private network connects the participants via an encrypted channel. This enables secure access to the company's IT infrastructure. The requirement for this is the installation of VPN software on the end device used and a stable internet connection.
  • Citrix: ProCall Enterprise supports Citrix Virtual Apps and desktops. Either the entire desktop or just individual applications can be streamed from a server to any computer. Thanks to encrypted connections and features such as two-way authentication, Citrix offers you a location-independent and secure solution for accessing your corporate network at any time.
  • Terminal Server: Similar to Citrix Virtual Desktop, access to the desktop provided on the terminal server is done remotely. The application software only needs to be installed and maintained once on the terminal server.
