Zero Trust Solution For Remote Workers

As companies have adapted to digital transformation and the pandemic's systemic disruptions, more businesses than ever are managing a remote workforce. This move from secure corporate facilities to home environments, with baseline remote work controls, adds residual risk. Princeton Identity has partnered with global cyber security experts EPAM, to bring a new kind of multi-layer security solution to market. 

Remote Safely addresses the immediate cybersecurity challenges businesses face, in the era of the disrupted workforce. Through our combination of digital architecture, biometrics, hardware, software, and workforce process capabilities, we employ a zero-trust process with data access management to ensure the protection of clients' sensitive information.

The solution ensures compliance with a wide range of security requirements, adopting a zero-trust approach to data access management. Identity confirmation through biometric verification ensures that only approved employees accessing the machine can see sensitive information - improving overall security and protecting sensitive data.

Remote Safely is an added layer of verification on top of an existing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) that combines biometrics, dedicated hardware, and workforce process capabilities to address the data safety needs of remote teams.

Remote Safely ensures that:
  1. The person accessing the corporate data is the remote worker who is authorized to see this data.
  2. The corporate data on the screen of the laptop is seen only by the authorized employee.
  3. There is no way to steal corporate data via screenshotting, screen-sharing, or even taking photos of the laptop screen.

 

Comprehensive Security Strategy

Remote Safely replaces the traditional offshore development center (ODC) by combining key physical controls with a hardened, secure VDI with logical session recording and AI risk visualization. The AI-based agent evaluates the risk profile based on recognized visual indicators such as:

  • Who is present?
  • How many people are present?
  • Are there unauthorized devices in the room?
This mitigates the risk of sensitive data being accessed or viewed by the wrong people in a home or remote environment. Remote Safely enables businesses to offer greater flexibility to their workforce, allowing their teams to focus on what they do best and trust their data is secure. For many industries, this has never before been an option, and it opens up a world of possibilities.

PIONEERING THE FUTURE OF REMOTE WORK

For professionals in the healthcare, insurance or financial services industry, remote work was previously not feasible. Businesses had no way to mitigate the security threats that could arise from employees working outside the corporate network, or in a different environment. Remote Safely can change that.

Do you or your employees work with or view these kinds of sensitive information?

  • Personally identifiable information (PII)
  • Protected health information (PHI)
  • Confidential or sensitive company or customer data
  • Financial information
  • Banking details
  • Credit card information
 
Remote Safely + Zero Trust Security

REMOTE SAFELY CAN PROTECT VALUABLE DATA & CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION WHILE GIVING YOUR BUSINESS A MORE FLEXIBLE WORKFORCE

Zero trust is the premise that companies should not assume confidentiality, privacy or integrity of anything inside their digital environment. Instead companies should rely on strict, identity-centric and transactional controls for every service or access. 

Remote Safely surpasses the current understanding of the zero-trust approach by only allowing access to critical data with continuous identity confirmation using biometric screening of the remote work environment. This ensures that the people accessing information on the system have the right permissions, taking zero trust beyond the local network and to the next level—right up to the chair.

Use Case Description

Remote Safely takes photos of the camera view area every 2 seconds and passes it to the Security Operational Server. The AI proctor processes the images to verify the user and screen for anomalous behavior. If there is any misconduct detected on the image, the alert appears on SOC Web Panel.

Members of SOC Monitoring Team analyze the employee’s images to detect any suspicious behavior and provide measure to resolve potential security incidents.

Value Proposition

‘Remote Safely’ helps companies protect their digital assets during work-from-home periods by rolling out an enhanced set of security controls.

Our goal is to eliminate the risk of data leakage caused by the more relaxed nature of the ‘work-from-home environment, allowing companies with special security needs to utilize a remote workforce with no harm to their business.
