Access Issues

New secure data access challenges
Today’s modern workforce no longer accesses applications only in a data center. Cloud adoption has accelerated and workers demand 24x7 secure access to applications regardless of location.

Reduce data loss & leakage
With increasing malware sophistication, the costs of data breaches are now approaching $4M USD each. Increased security posture and compliance are critical to protect sensitive corporate data.

Boosting worker productivity
Make sure workers can quickly access applications securely while ensuring device security compliance is a tall order. PCS is a solution that enables secure connectivity to any application anywhere, but you also want the devices connecting to your network to have the latest OS, security software, and patches.
