The recent pandemic has shown us how the work from anywhere culture is beneficial for both the organization and the employees. When the pandemic arrived, almost every company turned towards the flexible work culture to keep their services running. While the need for work from anywhere was much needed, the pandemic just accelerated its adoption. However, there are very limited options when it comes to software supporting the work from anywhere ability. SyncDog is a company that changes the way organizations empower their mobile workforce. It helps companies reset expectations on how employees can get work done on the go.
Although almost every other tech company provides employees to work from their home, they still have to be with their company laptop, which is not the most efficient way to work remotely. The SyncDog solution allows you to have the best of both; systems that can easily integrate into existing endpoint management solutions and can be deployed from the cloud, on-premise, or hybrid deployment.
Trusted Mobile Workspace
SyncDog provides a FIPS 140-2 Certified, AES 256 bit encrypted, end-to-end mobile security solution. This modular solution enables organizations to custom fit their mobility policies and security measures and align them to the specific needs of their entire employee base's various roles and titles for individual users.
SyncDog solution protects the device, detects and prevents any malware/phishing attacks, isolates all the corporate or government data/files/apps stored on the device, and offers a private app store for distribution of internal native or hybrid apps. It does so, all from a single download and centrally managed in a single administrative console.
Enterprise Mobility for GDPR Compliance
GDPR was implemented for data security regulations and compliance. Although GDPR is meant for good reasons, it still is very complex to understand, like most other regulations. CXOs are already scrambling and looking for what GDPR compliance means for them. SyncDog covers GDPR definitions and knowledgebase. It also provides Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and GDPR. There is a high probability that your organization might not be prepared for GDPR. SyncDog lets you prepare security and compliance standards through its solution.
Zero Trust in Mobility
Enterprises have been looking forward to a zero trust security model for a long time now. Still, they have been limited due to the privacy concerns of mobile devices for remote working. The risks associated with mobile devices have always restricted enterprises from adopting the mobile workforce system. However, the mobile specifications have evolved to the point where it is as capable as a laptop and offers more security than ever before. Also, the 5G network connectivity allows for a significant change in the landscape. The devices have the capability to stay connected from far-off places and also employ top-notch security.
Zero Trust is a technology that doesn't assume a user based on his location or asset ownership. Instead, it seeks continuous authentication and authorization of users, devices, and resources. It handles cybersecurity at a dynamic level that reflects a mobile, cloud-based environment. A zero trust architecture provides the framework, using zero trust principles to allow organizations to plan their enterprise workflows. It allows an authenticated user access, but even then, only to the minimum resources, they need to do their job. So if a device is compromised, by any chance, the zero trust model can limit the damage.
Due to the threats involved, enterprises now see the need to shift their architectures toward a zero trust model. It can help them with bringing specialization in the mobile security and mobile device management markets. Companies need a system where they can secure and manage their employees' devices with one comprehensive solution.
Moving to a zero-trust architecture can seem like an uphill task, as it is significantly different from the traditional methods of security that have safeguarded the networks for decades. But with the right platform and mobile security tools, the shift towards zero trust seems to be a better idea. Making a move should start with understanding the reasons for adopting a zero trust model in the current mobile landscape and knowing what to look for in a solution that can help zero trust become a reality.
The traditional approach focuses on protecting the network perimeter. But much of the organization's work happens outside its network perimeter. Mobile devices, remote work arrangements—accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic—and ever-expanding cloud infrastructure have stretched the environment well beyond the point where antivirus, intrusion detection, and other traditional methods can be effective. Corporate data is accessed outside the perimeter of security networks, exposing them to vulnerabilities.
Verizon's Mobile Security Index 2021 found that 60% of respondents consider mobile devices their organization's most considerable security risk. While some of them expect that the remote work will reduce considerably after this pandemic ends, about 78% still say that remote work will remain more common than in the pre-COVID era. Enterprises are outgrowing the traditional network perimeter. The focus of security has shifted from guarding on-premises to ensuring the security of digital assets and identities. It also needs to take care of people who are accessing the network and how much access they have to the resources. Organizations have implemented various identity and access management (IAM) solutions to track and manage both human and machine identities. The solution combines the role and entitlements-driven workflows secured with advanced encryption solutions, with the goal of implementing a zero trust model.
Physicians and healthcare providers constantly need to stay connected with their patients and share data effectively within the patient care continuum. Keeping that data secure is one of the most difficult tasks. Meeting HIPAA compliance in a world with over 165,000 health apps, a growing number of cyber threats, and hackers around every corner is very challenging.
Secure.Systems™ is a containerized mobile workspace solution delivered from the cloud that creates a more secure, protected environment for healthcare data and applications. It separates, encrypts, and protects the enterprise data from hackers. It keeps personal apps separate from hospital apps with separate rules for behavior and protects each from contamination.
Enterprise Mobile Management
The days of a one-size Enterprise Mobility Management system that fits all are long gone. Most Enterprise Mobility Management systems have complementary solutions with close integrations to partner solutions that secure their business' existing IT Security investment. SyncDog and it's Secure.Systems™ product line is one of these complementary solution providers. It has a solid history dating back to the late-1990s of integrating best-in-class mobility solutions to enterprise network systems before there ever were EMM solutions. The Secure.Systems™Mobility Architecture comprises a secure containerized workspace with AES 256-bit encryption and security extensions for HP ArcSight and IBM QRadar, two of the world's leading SIEM vendors.
Although almost all companies today need to allow their employees to work remotely, the current mobile security solutions still need them tethered to their laptops and office. This calls for a more secure and reliable system for remote work. SyncDog recognizes that companies need to flex to confidently leverage talent over diverse geography. Its solution provides a secure approach towards an integrated workforce. A single instance of the Secure.Systems™ solution can be utilized across a mobile workforce as well as third-party contractors and consultants.
BYOD or COPE Mobile Device Management
The Secure.Systems™ Workspace provides a secure application platform for employees accessing enterprise mobile productivity apps on BYOD or CYOD (Choose Your Own Device) devices. This solution allows your employees to work from anywhere with their own devices. SyncDog combines a suite of office applications like email, calendar, contacts, office editor, file share, location services, messaging, etc., along with an architecture that protects and secures your mobile workforce through FIPS 140-2, AES 256 bit encryption that removes the technological struggle of having to choose between increased security or increased productivity. Secure.Systems™ can easily integrate into existing endpoint management solutions and can be deployed from the cloud, on-premise, or as a hybrid deployment.
