As Infosec World is only days change away, we want to ensure that you don’t miss any essential information. Check out our announcement blog for more details on our attendance.

We will be exhibiting at this event to share our message regarding secure remote access and what poor security measures can mean for your business. With security at the core of our internal development processes, we understand what excellent security looks like.

An important conclusion of the Verizon report from earlier this year is that 80% of data breaches involved an external threat actor. ‘Desktop sharing software’ came up as a common theme as part of data breach attacks – Verizon defined this as “Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and third-party software that allows users to remotely access another computer via the Internet.” It’s critical for a business to know how to deploy a secure remote access solution.

Our very own CIO, Andrew Woodhouse, will deliver a keynote on knowing if your business is truly protected against external threats when using a remote access solution. Regardless of what tool your organization uses, external software poses a vulnerability. We have plenty of great resources within our blog that talk about ways you can ensure you are safe.

How do you know if your remote access tool is actually secure?

You don’t. Not unless your vendor can prove it. RealVNC recently engaged with Berlin-based security consultancy Cure53 to perform a complete white-box security audit, and the summary report is available to download here. It’s important to have transparent security so that your organization can see that VNC Connect is a secure remote access tool and know that it is.

We will be talking more about this at the event, and we’ll also discuss our fundamental security principles.

Extra resources your business will find useful 

We constantly provide information to help your company stay safe with remote access through our blog. VNC Connect protects you by default; however, it would help if you also considered other security measures – here are three extra resources sure to get your business a suit of armor when using remote access:
