Remote working is ever increasing, exposing corporate systems to external and remote users. Employees access virtual desktop environments from their homes and with their own devices. Individual access must be secured for network and IT managers to remotely configure systems and appliances.
In these situations, the authentication method must provide higher assurance and accountability than simple passwords. Enterprises face a significant trade-off in authentication strength, total cost of ownership and ease of use. Furthermore, the rise of compliance requirements in various industry sectors means that it is no longer a “nice to have”, but a necessity.
