On 6th October 2014, CESG issued specific BYOD guidance for using Excitor G/ON OS, the secure remote access solution from Excitor,  for accessing “Official” information for Remote and Home Working.

This guidance will affect all UK Public Sector Organisations and allow them to offer a low cost, managed solution to provide flexible home and remote working for staff.

Excitor G/On saves money over traditional VPN solutions by implementing a simplified single server architecture, fully integrated with the corporate LAN. G/On prevents data leakage and controls access by users including 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 servers, VDI, RDP, Intranet and web applications. No data leaves the corporate network and no data can be downloaded from or uploaded to the user’s local PCs or USB devices.

For more information or to discuss the guidance or the technical and security aspects of using G/On OS as a BYOD solution for your organisation please get in touch.

  • I’ve nothing but praise for Robert and the team and despite their long trading history have seen how they have maintained a strong, exciting and invigorating culture of success within their business which, for me, having had 20 years in application development is often more important than pure technical capability as it’s this consultative and empathetic approach which extracts the requirements from non-IT staff to enable Ecommnet to design and deliver a stronger better product.

    — Jason R Wilkinson, Head of Business Transformation, Westfield Health
  • During our 2FA POC and subsequent move to live system, Ecommnet provided a very attentive and responsive support service whenever we encountered problems.  Using the team’s web support portal to raise support calls and requests for changes results in a fast response and provision of support ranging from phone support, through remote console access to site visits as required. Due to the implementation of the 2FA system we now have secure remote access to internal resources while ensuring security compliance.

    — Allen Haigherty, Technical Support Officer, Kirklees Council
  • With the team’s help I was able to get the OTP authentication set up in time for our PCI audit. I just want to say I was very impressed with the level of service and the responsiveness, and the fact they were able to help us out under incredibly tight timescales speaks volumes.

    — Robin Whitehead, Technical Director, Iridium Corporation
  • Robert and the team were excellent, they qualified our environment quickly, were very strong on integrating security and mobile environments and the pilot went in easily. It was nice to deal with a company that was more than just a reseller, they truly believed in the solution and it was a great win for us to find their set of skills just down the road.

    — Steve Watchman, IT Executive, Newcastle Building Society
  • Ecommnet was able to create and deliver an all-new website that has in a short space of time received many compliments and generated enquiries. The team is accessible, helpful and responsive and have removed the ‘pain’ of IT. We were so pleased that they’re now entrusted to look after all our IT infrastructure.

    — Nick Bailey, Director, Elan PR
  • After 6 weeks of implementation issues with a competitive product, Ecommnet were a breath of fresh air, helping us out of a very tricky situation with a great solution in just two days. What a fantastic team; extremely helpful, technically competent and able to deliver.

    — John Clayton, Network Consultant, Kirklees Council
  • Ecommnet has proved an invaluable partner, especially when developing technology solutions to loosely defined business ideas. They bring a diverse range of ideas from their work to produce innovative approaches to solving problems. They will back their ingenuity by sharing in the risk of developing solutions, and having proved a concept will ensure the same team work with you to create a fully fledged product.
