UFCU enhances VPN security in less than a week

Regional U.S. Credit Union Enhances VPN Security with Portnox

Many U.S. states have shut down most non-essential industries, religious gatherings, cultural activities and sporting events in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This has forced most organizations to now require their employees to work from home in an effort to help slow the spread of the disease. As a result, many businesses now find themselves scrambling to assess the capabilities and limitations of their corporate VPN security.

At University Federal Credit Union (UFCU), a Utah-based community bank, the entire workforce was sent home almost overnight due to the pandemic. Fortunately for the credit union, UFCU had already begun to assess options for securing remote access through its corporate VPN. Thanks to the coronavirus, this VPN security project was fast-tracked.

UFCU’s network security team had to act quickly and needed to find a scalable solution that would allow authorized employees to connect to the corporate network via VPN, while blocking any unauthorized users or suspicious devices from being able to connect.

This led UFCU to Portnox CLEAR’s remote access security solution, which could deliver:

  • Full visibility into connecting devices in all locations
  • A cloud RADIUS server
  • Device risk posture assessments
  • Real-time endpoint remediation
  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA)
  • …and more!
