Secure remote worker access for Dundee Council

SecurEnvoy : 01 October, 2009  (Application Story)
Adherence to Scottish codes of conduct and secure access to network resources drives Dundee City Council to use SecurAccess for it's remote workers from SecurEnvoy
Dundee City Council has tightened its security for remote workers with a new technology implementation from SecurEnvoy, while fully adhering to the Scottish Government's Code of Conduct (CoCo) for GSX outlined for local authorities.

The Council has installed SecurAccess from SecurEnvoy to enhance its security system for remote working. SecurAccess provides employees with network access via SMS. Passcodes are sent to their mobile phones, which are entered alongside usual login details, to access networks and emails from remote locations safely.

Graeme Quinn, IT team leader at Dundee City Council said: 'We were looking to enhance our VPN security, and liked the easy process for accessing our network safely via SMS. Nearly everyone these days has a mobile phone, so this limited overall costs. We thought SecurAccess would be a quick, easy solution to combat the security issues around remote access.'

'SecurAccess has also enabled us to meet government requirements outlined in the Code of Conduct, whilst enhancing our security with two very different groups of users, many of whom are required to work remotely around the city.'

'We have 1,000 licences at the moment, but we'll look at increasing this in future. Our requirements are always changing and it's great to have technology in place to cope with our developing workforce.'

'Mobile working is undoubtedly becoming more common, and we want to support employees who want more flexibly, without compromising security,' said Steve Watts, co-founder at SecurEnvoy. 'With extra requirements for local governments to be CoCo compliant, councils like Dundee will benefit from our leading technology, SecurAccess.'
