Remote Access is the ability to log onto a network from a distant location. Generally, this implies a computer, a modem, and some remote access software to connect to the network. Whereas remote control refers to taking control of another computer, remote access means that the remote computer actually becomes a full-fledged host on the network. The remote access software dials in directly to the network server.

Enterprises are increasingly opening up their networks to a greater constituency of remote users, but they often do not take into consideration the protection of user identity as a critical component of their strategy. The mobile workforce can now work productively from a remote location such as a home office, the airport, a hotel, or a customer site.
In an environment where business and government databases store ever-increasing amounts of sensitive and confidential data; and where a growing number of employees need to access that data remotely, password security alone is insufficient to ensure user authentication.

Based on market research performed from 2004 to 2007, this white paper summarizes these best practices, illustrates the benefits, and suggests considerations for selecting the remote access solution that will be most effective for your support organization.
