BeyondTrust is offering its Secure Remote Access solutions free for 90 days to help organisations support expanded remote workforces due to coronavirus (COVID-19). As the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread across the world, organizations are closing offices and mandating remote work arrangements. This situation has put immense pressure on IT organizations and support desks who need to quickly set up and support teams of remote workers around the globe.
Organisations are also struggling to provide secure ways, for now, remote IT administrators, contractors, and vendors to access critical systems to maintain business continuity and operations. To help IT organizations address these challenges without compromising security, BeyondTrust is offering free use of its Secure Remote Access solutions for 90 days:
- Remote Support: Enables service desks to provide secure, reliable remote support to employees both on and off their network. Support technicians can see the end user’s screen, chat, elevate privileges, and even access the end user’s mobile device camera to help them set up the hardware and troubleshoot peripherals. Techs can support Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and network devices with this single solution.
- Privileged Remote Access: Gives external vendors and internal IT staff and administrators, who are working remotely, secure access to systems without requiring a VPN. This solution simplifies access by providing one secure and compliant tool that facilitates unattended access for all types of remote systems and endpoints.
“During such challenging times, using the right remote access tools is pivotal to security as threat actors commonly target unsecured remote access methods to gain initial footholds into networks. BeyondTrust is providing free use of its solutions for 90 days to help organizations quickly scale to meet the demand while keeping their business secure,” the company said in a statement.
“Every day, thousands of customers across the globe rely upon our Secure Remote Access solutions to support remote workforces and external vendors,” said Matt Dircks, CEO, BeyondTrust. “We understand the additional pressure that many organizations are now facing in response to temporary policies requiring hundreds or thousands of employees to telecommute.
