CESG Publishes Guidance on Excitor G/On for BYOD, Remote and Home Working

Last updated:

Today, CESG has published guidance for home and other remote workers to access government information at OFFICIAL, using Excitor G/On, a secure remote access solution. This guidance forms part of CESG’s wider End User Devices Security Guidance.

UK Public Sector organisations can now offer increased flexible working for staff while taking advantage of the savings offered by G/On, through a simplified infrastructure and the use of home PCs, or lower cost government supplied laptops. This enables secure BYOD, long demanded by government workers.

Excitor G/On prevents data leakage and controls access by staff, contractors, partners and customers to specific applications, without the need for a VPN. It provides fast, low cost access to client/server applications such as Citrix (without the need for Citrix Gateways), VDI, RDP, Intranet and web applications. No data leaves the corporate network and no application data can be uploaded from or downloaded to local PCs or USB tokens.

Excitor G/On supports Windows, Mac and Linux via a bootable USB token with built in strong, smartcard based, two factor user authentication and integrated 256 bit AES encrypted communication for strong protection of data in transit.

Rene Stockner, Excitor CEO, said

“The two biggest blockers to government workers being effective from home, or remotely, are cost and the potential risk to security. Excitor G/On addresses them both.

“G/On has been used by North.American and European government departments for secure remote access since 2003. However in the UK, NHS, Military and other Public Sector organisations have been obliged to provide costly high end government supplied equipment and laptop builds which are time consuming to manage.

“With today’s CESG guidance, government organisations can now deploy Excitor’s secure bootable USB tokens with home PCs to enable home working to staff at a fraction of the cost. It removes another hurdle to the full implementation of this year’s EU Directive on Flexible Working in Government.”
