Technology is driving a paradigm shift in the way people work and how they connect. This is creating a pressing need for secure digital enablement solutions that meet the demands of the new, work from anywhere, world.
The trend can be seen in organizations of all sizes as they grapple with securely connecting their workforces, extended teams, and third party providers. That is making cybersecurity a top of mind challenge especially as these teams become increasingly dynamic and require access from a variety of geographies and devices.
Fortunately, Agilicus, an Ontario, Canada based cybersecurity startup is tackling exactly this issue with its cloud-native, Zero Trust Network Access platform. In fact, Agilicus recently announced that the team has landed a contract with the Canadian Federal Government.
“Lighthouse customers like the Government of Canada are great validation of the work we are doing at Agilicus,” said Don Bowman, Co-founder and CEO. “It helps us see our technology at work solving challenges like connecting extended teams, enabling secure access, and delivering improved cybersecurity at scale.”
One of the ways organisations, no matter their size, can unite the workforce and embrace the remote and modern style of work is through Zero Trust. Zero Trust changes the way users connect to company resources. Instead of gaining access to a network, users are paired only to the resource they need. This form of access and resource segmentation helps organisations deliver greater accessibility for their end users and allows them to work from anywhere on any device. The end result is improved security across the organisation.
According to their website, Agilicus works by allowing organisations to easily federate identity across providers (public, private, Google, Okta, Microsoft, etc.). The platform enables single sign-on and lets organisations integrate their native active directories, and that of their partner organisations without the need for new user ids or passwords.
“What we believe at Agilicus is that security should be economical and simple. End users should be able to access the resources they need from anywhere, using any device,” said Bowman. “Our unique approach to Zero Trust Network Architecture is how we do that, and it’s helping organisations of all sizes securely adapt to these modern ways of working.”
As noted in their recent press release, Agilicus empowers organisations with the ability to make company resources more accessible without sacrificing security. This is helping deliver secure access to remote and mobile users, whether they are employees, non-employees, contractors, partners, or frontline workers.
Organisations can safely embrace the future of work and securely connect their workforces through Zero Trust solutions like the Agilicus Any X platform.
