It is already the third upgrade of our software this year. After renewing the Inventory module and adding remote access, the time has come for significant changes in HelpDesk and DataGuard improvements.
Create a Secure Home Office with Remote Access in Axence nVision®
Remote access in nVision® will certainly please everyone who would like to have access to the resources of the company computer from their private equipment. Thanks to this functionality, you'll be able to access the applications and data used at workplace without having to install them on your own device or using third-party applications.
Most importantly, you will be able to do all of these tasks while maintaining the highest security standards, because the connection is encrypted using TLS 1.2. So you don't have to worry about sensitive data being stolen by cyber criminals.
The new functionality will allow companies to save money in these difficult times, because it does not require a VPN or additional remote access software, for which you often have to pay dearly.
How does remote access work in Axence nVision 11.6®?
User's private computer connects using TLS 1.2 encryption to the main router in the organization, which redirects the connection to the nVision server, which grants access to a specific workstation in the company.
