In the global workplace more employees and IT contractors than ever access and connect daily to workplace network systems and numerous applications from multiple remote locations. The Global Workplace Analytics research found that remote workers have grown by 140% since 2005. The reality is that many of the massive data breaches we hear about almost every day are linked to compromised credentials from those workers that are mobile.
Recently the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHG) alerted that cyber adversaries have identified remote access as a weak spot that can be exploited. They’ve seen an increase in attacks through the remote desktop protocol (RDP) to gain unauthorized access to accounts and extract sensitive data.

It allows your IT department to enhance security with the It’sMe(TM) MFA, enabling automated and real-time decisions to grant access to users who are remotely accessing your network servers.
