How To Benefit From Secure DirectAccess Connections


On a busy summer day in Los Angeles, a traveling executive stops at a sidewalk café equipped with Wi-Fi so she can respond to some urgent emails before moving on to her next appointment. She orders a latte and a croissant and then powers up her laptop. After logging on to her system she is automatically prompted for a network login password. She reaches for her smartphone and uses HOTPinTM to generate a dynamic one-time password (OTP) which she enters with a PIN to access her company network. The interaction between user and system is simple and efficient.


What the user doesn’t know is that both she and her machine have just authenticated via DirectAccess which is built on a foundation of proven standards such as Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) and IPsec. She now has the full work capabilities as if she were in her office.
