Workforce Agility

Enable a proper IT Infrastructure for strategic agility

Progressive businesses today are embracing the movement toward a more agile work environment.

A mobile workforce infrastructure can serve as a business driver enabling employees to work from anywhere at any time, increasing efficiency and productivity.


Defining workforce agility challenges  

However, broadening access to enterprise resources also increases an organization's attack surface and risk exposure related to confirming identities and access, data encryption and confirming trusted applications. Flexible productivity must be secured by maintaining compliance adherence to prevent costly security breaches. Challenges to be met include:

  • VPN or DirectAccess to corporate resources being compromised by weak passwords, increasing the risk of unauthorized user access;
  • Mobile device certificates and keys weakened by over-the-air transmission and repeatedly impacted by device loss and upgrades;
  • Users on different platforms having a difficult time obtaining certificates with ease and assurance;
  • Remote user data in motion being highly susceptible to loss and breach; and
  • Certificate and Certificate Revocation Log (CRL) expiration without monitoring and  an efficient update process resulting in extended user downtime.

CSS helps companies minimize risk, improve business outcomes:

Additionally, the unique issuance capability of CMS across almost any device or operating system allows an organization to consistently extend high assurance security practices across the organization, users and client/partner ecosystem.
