Guide to Enterprise Telework and Remote Access Security (SP 800-46 Revision 1)

Thursday, June 4, 2009

Abstract

Many organizations’ employees and contractors use enterprise telework technologies to perform work from external locations. Most teleworkers use remote access technologies to interface with an organization’s non-public computing resources. The nature of telework and remote access technologies—permitting access to protected resources from external networks and often external hosts as well—generally places them at higher risk than similar technologies only accessed from inside the organization, as well as increasing the risk to the internal resources made available to teleworkers through remote access.

This publication, authored by Karen Scarfone and Murugiah Souppaya, provides information on security considerations for several types of remote access solutions, and it makes recommendations for securing a variety of telework and remote access technologies. It also gives advice on creating telework security policies.
