Organizations are becoming more distributed and international than ever before. Branch offices in all shapes and sizes, employees working from home, road warriors on the field and a plethora of IT systems and mobile devices to manage is a fact for most modern enterprises. The flexibility has enabled new gains in productivity, but has also led to dangerous inconsistencies and compromises in terms of information security.
Branch offices and remote workers require stable access to datacenter resources at headquarter. It's a challenge to enable fast and stable connections across countries and continents. The ever-increasing number of cloud based or internally hosted applications, social networks and an online lifestyle induces new security challenges for the distributed enterprise networks. These applications has to be allowed for the employees to be able to perform, in the same way they expose the enterprise network with vulnerable threats. The limited application awareness offered by first-generation firewalls is not effective in dealing with current and emerging threats. To protect the business, enterprises must make sure their network security appliances and policies can manage and control applications, as attacks get more advanced and sophisticated.

In this example a mobile worker is connected to the HQ by using the VPN client on his laptop and smartphone. Other users in this scenario are the production facility where the machines are controlled and managed secure by using the ruggedized Clavister X8 with connection over VPN to the HQ. There are also branch offices connected by Clavister W3 and a larger office using Clavister W5 – they are all connected securely to the HQ. All these scenarios are managed with Clavister InControl.
