Connect to work securely, any time, anywhere
A secure network connection any time and anywhere is the big challenge for mobile work and integration of remote offices, particularly in COVID-19 times.

Transport layer security (TLS), formerly called secure sockets layer (SSL), is an encryption protocol for secure data transfer over the Internet. This protocol allows a virtual private network (VPN) to be established that enables secure remote access to company applications or resources. Web traffic via HTTPS (hypertext transfer protocol secure) is encrypted using TLS/SSL.
IPsec is another technical basis for encrypting and setting up a VPN. For some applications, it may well make sense to use both TLS/SSL and IPsec. IPsec is a standard on a deeper OSI level (open systems interconnection) than SSL and can be implemented more independently of the application. Plus, no other tool needs to be installed on the client and downloaded before setting up the connection.
Mobile or home workplaces are securely connected to the company network using VPN technology (SSL or IPsec). As with VPN, an encrypted communication channel (tunnel) is set up between the remote system and the company network. Data can be securely transferred through this channel. Access can be restricted on the level of ports and IP addresses.
In a site-to-site VPN, whole networks are coupled to each other, e.g. the different locations of a company. Users can access data at all locations, depending on their rights.
Authentication as identity verification is indispensable, especially for secure connection of mobile or home workplaces to the company network. Authentication can be done using conventional password procedures or better still using what is known as strong two-factor authentication. Here, a security token guarantees that only authorised users obtain access.
Secure integration of mobile devices like smartphones, pads, and tablets calls for particular attention these days. Pallas uses various systems for necessary mobile device management (MDM), to enable encrypted access to email systems and company data and to keep mobile devices compliant.
