ITL BULLETIN MARCH 2020: Security for Enterprise Telework, Remote Access, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Solutions
Many people telework (also known as telecommuting), which is the ability for an organization’s employees, contractors, business partners, vendors, and other users to perform work from locations other than the organization’s facilities. Teleworkers use various client devices, such as desktop and laptop computers, smartphones, and tablets, to read and send email, access websites, review and edit documents, and perform many other tasks. These client devices may be controlled by the organization, by third parties (the organization’s contractors, business partners, or vendors), or by the users themselves (e.g., BYOD). Most teleworkers use remote access, which is the ability for an organization’s users to access its non-public computing resources from external locations other than the organization’s facilities.
