How to securely implement digital workspaces

As more organizations pivot to incorporating digital workspaces, IT will have to make important decisions around security. There has been an increase in cybersecurity incidents over the last few years. IT can’t rely on traditional or established security protocols. They need to be aware of the latest threats and the best ways to mitigate them.

Below are the best ways to ensure digital workspaces are secure when employees access them from wherever they work.

PCoIP technology

One of the best ways to secure digital workspaces is through software solutions that include their own additional security parameters. HP Anyware is based on the patented PCoIP remote display protocol that connects users to the resources they need to work wherever they are. Designed for security and performance, PCoIP technology is secured with AES 256 encryption which allows PCoIP traffic to meet the stringent security requirements set by governments.

Multi-factor authentication and Single Sign-On

 IT can install multi-factor authentication (MFA) protocols to protect access to digital workspaces. MFA adds multiple levels of protection when a user tries to access company data or applications. By verifying the identity of the user through login credentials and a third-party authentication app, MFA can safeguard against cybersecurity threats. HP Anyware is equipped with MFA protocols, as well as Single Sign-On, for additional verifications and to keep access to digital workspaces more secure.

Remote digital workspace administration

IT has a critical role in managing the security of digital workspaces. Alongside tracking updates to PCoIP technology and ensuring that MFA regulations are set, IT also needs to ensure that digital workspaces aren’t open to vulnerabilities. Turning off inactive connections, even if IT is working away from the digital workspace, is an important aspect of this role.

Zero Trust Architecture

Rather than technology, Zero Trust is a philosophy of ‘never trust, always verify’. It is a model for security that limits access to only verified users, devices, workloads and data. The Zero Trust strategy, by default, distrusts all entities and technologies, affords all entities the least privilege, and constantly monitors access to digital workspaces.
