How to deliver secure remote working quickly and now!
Wednesday 25th March, 2020
A secure solution with no hardware or onsite presence needed for deployment or support.
Due to the increasing concerns over the COVID-19 outbreak and recent government lock-down announcements, public and private sector organisations are implementing home working, whilst at the same time, trying to ensure that their networks continue to operate and are secure.
KHIPU’s NOC and SOC has received a huge influx of questions from customers asking us how quickly they can deploy a stable remote working environment that not only supports ‘any’ type of device, but is secure and doesn’t require hardware or onsite engineers to implement. Having hosted a number of virtual technical workshops with a variety of different types of customers, in partnership with Palo Alto Networks, the most popular methods include:
- New Virtual VPN appliance licence: We have a new cost-effective Virtual Next-Generation Firewall bundle licence that can scale from small to very large remote access environments. These do not require hardware (virtual environment is required) or any onsite engineers to install, everything is provided remotely including licences, configuration and support.
- Free 90-day GlobalProtect VPN subscription: For existing Palo Alto Networks customers – the entire next generation firewall range support always-on, secure access with GlobalProtect. We’re offering a free 90-day GlobalProtect subscription trial for secure mobile access, all that is required is a licence request (as per the form below) and professional services time (if required). Note: *Customers will need to check their next generation firewall hardware VPN session capacity.
There are still options available for hardware and Palo Alto Networks cloud Prisma Access platform should the above not be feasible for specific environments.
