Benefits of Microsoft DirectAccess

Many organizations have had to quickly adapt to working remotely. How are your employees connected?

Microsoft’s DirectAccess solution can facilitate secure remote connections to your organization for every employee without requiring VPN access. Let’s explore how DirectAccess powers remote work with easy and secure remote connectivity.

What Is Microsoft DirectAccess?

Microsoft DirectAccess allows remote users to connect to your organization easily and securely, without using a VPN. This is important as VPNs are user-initiated and many of your end users might not be familiar with setting one up OR remembering to start it up for a connection.

To alleviate this issue, DirectAccess facilitates the connection for the user, making it easier to connect and reducing the risk of human error. This, in turn, prevents security vulnerabilities, compliance risk, data loss, and more.

Additionally, DirectAccess connections are secure because your organization has to issue a certificate to allow the connection. When your remote workers connect using Microsoft DirectAccess, the connection is monitored by your server, which minimizes threats.

What Are the Benefits of Microsoft DirectAccess?

Microsoft DirectAccess keeps things simple for you and your employees. They don’t have to manage how they connect to work resources. You don’t have to worry about insecure connections. Your end-users can rely on a consistent experience. It’s a win for everyone. And in new remote work environments that introduce countless variables into your security, collaboration and productivity plans, DirectAccess is a constant you can rely on.
