Secure access to internal resources of the network by external users (mobile users and SoHo) is represented by a professional SSL-VPN connection to the CONCIPIA-GUARD Centre. The dedicated appliance is available as quasi proxy in the demilitarised zone (DMZ). Any access from outside is exclusively processed via a highly encrypted data traffic.

The various users are provided with different portals with individually adapted application links. Applications via the secured SSL portal can be executed, thus significantly increasing the efficiency of the staff:

  • Citrix
  • Remote desktop (RDP) via Java
  • SSH
  • File-Share
  • VNC
  • Remote desktop (RDP) via ActiveX
  • Outlook Web Access (OWA)
  • Telnet
  • FTP

Access to the user portal is implemented via browsers of different manufacturers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Netscape) and is thus possible from any system connected to the Internet. Secure access to the portal can be executed from any Internet-capable computer without the need to install any additional software.

After completion of the application, the configuration deletes all traces that would allow any conclusions regarding the previous connection.

A VPN channel (virtual private network) can be created to allow for the secure execution of further applications.

A token authentication by a one-time password is optionally possible and is recommended by experts for reasons of convenience and security.
