Apps Unveiled|August 2021
The relevance of working remotely instead of being at the workplace has never been greater than now. As you may know, several companies around the world have operated during the pandemic with employees performing their jobs from home.

Context-aware extensions to ensure remote access safety can help an organization to maintain steady levels of Identity and Access Management (IAM) for employees and users in distant locations. The application of this technology can be remotely achieved with the help of virtual firewalls and cloud-data security systems.
