Uniken adds WFH capabilities to native smartphone biometrics solution Rel-ID
Digital cybersecurity solutions company Uniken has announced an update to its Rel-ID solution to include remote access, Work From Home (WFH) capabilities.
Rel-ID uses native smartphone biometrics to allow for user verification. Following the upgrade, the platform will now grant role-based access to applications, with all traffic secured using an individualized, encrypted network connection.
The WFH update ensures all authentication within the machine is multi-factor and phishing proof, while also removing the need for third-party authenticators.
REL-ID WFH supports secure remote access to corporate internet and intranet web applications, as well as to specific IT and corporate applications requiring server (SSH), remote desktop, or desktop client access.
According to Bimal Gandhi, CEO of Uniken, REL-ID WFH has been developed to support remote workers, particularly during the pandemic.
“Employees in today’s pandemic environment can now only access sensitive corporate resources from home – sometimes with their personal computer,” he said. “REL-ID WFH provides the perfect balance of exceptional security, ease-of-use, and individual privacy.”
The solution can also be installed by remote workers without the need for IT to install certificates or remotely access the worker’s personal device, Gandhi added.
Moreover, REL-ID WFH splits the traffic at the computer itself, sending corporate traffic to the proxy running within the corporate network, while letting personal traffic go straight out to the internet.
This way, the company says, remote workers’ privacy is respected, and the bandwidth of the corporate network is used for working purposes only.
