In times of digitization, it is essential for companies to have access to a reliable and secure remote desktop system. More and more employees are working from home or on the road and need access to company data and applications. But how can you ensure a secure and data protection-compliant solution for remote access to company data?
Checked by the independent data protection officer
The browser-based remote desktop system WebConnect offers an answer to this question. This solution was rated positively by data protection officer Bernd Wilkens from bw-fcc GmbH with regard to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). But what exactly makes WebConnect a privacy-compliant remote desktop solution?
How does WebConnect support privacy concerns
First of all, WebConnect is completely browser-based, i.e. no additional software needs to be installed on the employees’ end devices. This means that no data is stored on employees’ devices and thus a higher level of data protection is guaranteed. Company data is accessed via a secure HTTPS connection, which is secured with strong encryption.
Another advantage of WebConnect is that it is installed within the company network and is completely web-based. This means that the data is stored in the company’s secure data center and is therefore protected against unauthorized access. The data remains under company control and is not stored on employee devices.
WebConnect also has a comprehensive access control system. Permissions for access to specific data and applications can be set individually. Access monitoring is also possible to ensure that only authorized employees have access to company data.
Conclusion: Data protection guaranteed according to GDPR
Overall, WebConnect offers a data protection-compliant and secure solution for remote access to company data. The browser-based and web-based solution protects data from unauthorized access and offers a comprehensive access control system. Thanks to the positive assessment by data protection officer Bernd Wilkens from bw-fcc GmbH with regard to the GDPR, companies can rest assured that WebConnect meets data protection requirements.
