Atomwide offers remote access functionality, based on USO authentication, to provide access to secure intranet sites, remote desktop servers and Windows file shares. The system provides browser-based access via a clientless SSL interface which is achieved by utilising the SSLVPN capability of the Cisco ASA 5500 appliance series. A full VPN can also be enabled for more advanced users requiring direct IP access to school networks. This can be delivered using either an SSL or IPSec-based client.
As the system is fully integrated with USO an additional level of security can be enforced by requiring some (or all) users to authenticate access using USO-OTP second factor authentication.
