Why choose Cyber Intelligence Centre (CIC)?
What is Secure Remote Access?
Increased connectivity and worker mobility is leading to the breakdown of the traditional network perimeter, and both are contributing to sensitive data being shared with people and systems within and outside organisations. This trend requires different individuals and departments to have controlled access to data, while ensuring disclosure requirements comply and are managed in accordance with corporate governance controls.
Authenticating users has become a security best practice, but once is not enough. Public-key infrastructure (PKI) authenticate the user at first logon but leave the session open to hacker attacks. With continuous mutual authentication and encryption during every transmission between client and server, 2-factor authentication reduces the potential for data theft and fraud, by closing the window of opportunity for hackers.
Our 2-factor authentication SSL VPN utilises best-of-breed appliances to ensure end-to-end secure connectivity into your environment. Coupled with our mobile experience, it delivers a fully converged solution through any device with Internet capabilities. There’s no client software required thus making it a truly clientless SSL VPN.

The shared firewall solution is a cost-effective outsourced solution. In the shared hosted model the service will be available, provisioned and managed via a shared, multi-tenanted UTM (optional) device and managed by Vodacom Business.
