Securing home computers, used by advisors for their work, is essential. SAFEOS makes security simple, whether you opt to allow home-based advisors to use their own computers (and benefit from the scalability and cost effectiveness of Bring Your Own Device). Or, provide hardware that may, or may not, be used for personal use. Or, provide hardware that may be used for personal use.
SAFEOS works by limiting access to work applications and encrypting data to and from your data centre:
Application whitelisting: identify the applications that your advisors need (this could be as simple as a Citrix Receiver on the boot desktop).
Endpoint profiling: only permit access from a device registered using their unique MAC address.
Secure access: secure access with two factor authentication (2FA) and TeamTonic Scheduler Gateway, disabling WiFi (with real time monitoring) and extra firewall rules.
Encrypted tunnelling: AES-256 cryptology based remote access VPN to Sensée DC which monitors access and traffic.
Lockdown: disable all physical and internet ports (other than VPN) to prevent Print Saving etc.
Firewall and intrusion prevention: run pre-packaged security apps to further harden security.
Convenient centralised control: manage everything remotely via a central imaging server.
Support for everything from recruitment and on-boarding to scheduling, training and management.
