New enterprise solution secures external access for Lync from laptop and desktop

LyncShield has added new security features protecting the users of external devices who wish to use Microsoft Lync from outside the organization.

Following the addition of the new features, users can now safely connect to Lync servers from smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktop PCs and any other external device outside the organization. The advanced security solution prevents unauthorized devices from penetrating the corporate network and protects the Active Directory (AD).

“Following the introduction of our solutions for secure mobile Lync connectivity, customers asked us to develop a similar solution for external devices,” said Guy Eldan, CEO of AGAT Software Solutions, which developed LyncShield. “We are now offering the ideal security suit for any organization looking to allow its workers to connect to its Lync client, regardless of where they are and which device they are using.”

The latest release offers an identical security solution for both mobile and external devices in terms of functionality and user experience, allowing hydride deployment to be securely deployed.

LyncShield now offers the following enterprise security features:

  • Active Directory credentials protection – defining dedicated credentials that are different from the Active Directory credentials to minimize damage and risk in case of a stolen or lost device, or if the credentials are hacked.
  • Two factor authentication – by matching the device and user, the organization can limit users to using only corporate devices or specific devices that meet the company’s security requirements.
  • Account lockout protection – preventing account lockout for organizations that wish to safely connect computers from outside the corporate network to their Lync edge access control server.
  • Reverse proxy Lync publishing – scalable, event-driven and secure reverse proxy alternative for Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) to publish Lync.
