Virtual Desktop Solutions 

Many users prefer to use and work on solutions they are familiar with in the same way that they are used to. There may also be applications that your business uses that are not able to be accessed as easily as you would need in a remote manner OR on personal devices.

This is where Virtual Desktops can play a role. Regardless of the device that the person has, as long as it’s suitable for the work some is doing, the familiar usage and application delivery can be present.

Utilising this functionality with security services such as VPN, SD-WAN or over TLS combined with MFA/2FA depending on your needs, your staff can securely work from any location in the same manner, no need to re-design processes for remote working – it just works.

Understand what secure remote working could look like for you.

Secure Communication 

End-to-End Encryption has become a standard term for communications these days, with numerous applications and services employing the technology, however understanding where each “end” sits is releative to the level of risk that you are willing to take. 

Armour Mobile/Desktop

Armour Mobile provides all the functionality of consumer-grade apps but with considerably greater security. It provides secure voice calls, video calls, one-to-one and group messaging, voice and video conference calls, file attachments, sent/ received/read message status and the option for messages to automatically delete once read or after a set time (MessageBurn).

Most importantly we protect not only the content of communications, but also the associated meta-data. This means no-one even knows you are having a conversation, let alone what that conversation is about. Armour Mobile prevents mobile communications whether voice, text, video or conference from being intercepted by devices such as IMSI catchers, or hacks using the SS7 protocol and others. It enables secure collaboration between trusted colleagues when discussing commercially sensitive information such as corporate intellectual property, financial transactions, and customer details.

With Armour Desktop, which works with a Windows 10 softphone, and integration with Skype for Business, organisations are able to take advantage of the reduced costs and increased flexibility provided by Voice over IP.
