How can Accops solutions help organizations comply with the latest NSE & SEBI guidelines on remote access
The Covid-19 pandemic has made business as usual impossible for most organizations. This has effectively called for re-evaluation of several business regulations and laws, as most of them were formulated keeping a ‘business as usual’ scenario in mind and cannot be deemed suitable for a world reeling under a pandemic. So, regulatory bodies like SEBI and NSE have been proactively coming up with updated regulations to ensure that the business environment remains safe and secure, and the interests of all stakeholders are protected.
Accops provides comprehensive zero trust-based secure remote work solutions with all features needed for seamless compliance with the latest guidelines provided by SEBI and NSE. The below is a summarized list of pointers which outlines how organizations can ensure compliance using Accops solutions.
Put a secure remote access policy framework in place for accessing data centre resources using internet
Accops solutions allow organizations to let their users securely access and work with all private corporate applications, office infrastructure, VDI. Accops Zero Trust-based Layer-7 Access Gateway ensures that the architecture of the solution is secure enough to prevent any kind of malicious elements from entering the network through the distributed users’ devices or networks.
Formulate and implement appropriate security guidelines for BYOD
Application restriction policies in terms of whitelisting and blacklisting can be formulated and enforced through Accops solutions for BYOD. Data on user profiles, application access patterns, and a host of other parameters are provided for audit purposes.
Implement a strong authentication mechanism to ensure better data confidentiality and accessibility
Accops solutions enable organizations to implement strong authentication with its integrated MFA, which uses multiple token options like SMS, email, mobile app or biometrics to ensure strict verification of a user’s claimed identity before providing access to corporate resources. With such strong authentication mechanisms, organizations can ensure better data accessibility without having to compromise on data confidentiality or security.
Bind MAC addresses with IP addresses to strengthen network security
Accops verifies user and device signatures based on more than 20 parameters including MAC address, WAN/IP address, geolocation, firewall status, antivirus status, CPU ID, motherboard ID, etc. Also, MAC address of an endpoint can be bound to the IP address to ensure that a user always works on only one specific device.
Use video-recognition mechanism to continually monitor users
With Accops’ facial authentication features, organizations can ensure that the employee using remote access solution is indeed the same person to whom the access has been granted and not any other unauthorized user. Accops provides organizations with the ability to continuously scan users face once every few minutes to prevent identity thefts, credential sharing or shoulder surfing.
Provide secure access for third party users
With Accops solution, enterprises can govern the business data and restrict access to managed/approved devices only while providing access to vendor users. While user authentication is secured by 2FA/OTP, endpoint device authentication and authorization will be managed by Accops endpoint security policy which is based on non-spoofable device signatures like CPU ID, Motherboard ID, HDD ID. Thus, Accops enables organizations to provide secure access to vendor users from their own devices, while their own office premises or homes.
Continuously monitor end user activity and generate alerts in case of abnormalities
Accops Management Server, through its Zero Trust-based contextual, role-based access engine continuously looks for patterns of any abnormal access. In case of any abnormalities, endpoint details will be captured and will be ‘quarantined’, while a notification is sent to admin about the unusual access and the login failure of user.
Pay extra attention to security patches and software upgrades
Accops helps organizations to apply all critical security patches and upgrades of OS and other mission critical applications to all endpoints in a timely manner, from a central location. IT administration teams’ burdens will be reduced while they will exercise complete control over all endpoints.
