Introducing XONA Critical System Gateway

Introducing XONA Critical System Gateway

• A franchisee sitting 2,000 miles away from corporate headquarters.
• A contractor on her laptop in an airport.
• An employee telecommuting from home.
• An engineer accessing industrial controls from outside of the control room

This is how the world works.

To do their jobs, each one needs remote access to critical corporate applications. Sensitive data. Confidential files. Order entry, accounting, HR, and so much more.

But what hidden malware is already lurking on their devices? How secure are their personal systems? Do they log in with a password like ‘kittycat?’

How you give them access to crucial information can make or break your organization. Because, for hackers, third party remote access is the weakest point and easiest entry into to your infrastructure, your critical assets, and your future. Once they’re in, they can move laterally and take weeks or months to discover—if you find them at all.

Studies show almost 60% of organizations have experienced this kind of data breach: Wendy’s POS systems, the Archdiocese of Denver’s payroll database, Target, Home Depot, J.P. Morgan, and a world of others. Recently more than half a billion username/password combinations were posted for sale on the Dark Web.

Bad actors, including nefarious nation states, frequently use third-party connections to compromise sensitive enterprise applications and data.

Remote access is an inescapable, fundamental necessity. It’s highly essential, but it’s also highly dangerous. So, do you feel lucky?

Solutions are out there, but the solutions themselves are riddled with problems. Finding a way to provide simple, secure access to your outside resources is anything but simple and far from secure.

Take VPN options—your contractors and vendors may use the same credentials for your remote access VPN as they do for their social media accounts. You’re giving away the keys to the kingdom—providing exactly the kind of excessive access to network resources bad actors love to find and exploit. Meanwhile your legitimate third-party users also have access to far more applications than they really need. And every time they get a new phone, tablet, or laptop, you have to deploy your VPN all over again.

So, what about VDIs? They rack up huge infrastructure expenses. Often double the number of OS licenses. Demand a massive VDI farm. Require enormous available memory. And then comes the dangerous part: your client software must be installed on third party corporate devices, and if a single one of those remote desktops is infected with malware it can spread across your entire enterprise.

The harsh truth?

Being in business depends on integrating external members into your process.

Bad actors and malware love to gain access through those third-party connections.

Current solutions are too hard to set up. Too confusing to use. Too expensive. Too risky.

They demand more time. More licensing. More hardware.
