How CyberGatekeeper Remote Works

How CyberGatekeeper Remote Works

CyberGatekeeper Remote sits between the VPN, remote access server and the corporate network. Access to the corporate network is restricted until CyberGatekeeper Remote audits the remote system and verifies that it complies with security policies that have been uploaded to it.

The CyberGatekeeper Remote system consists of three components. CG Server, CG Policy Manager, and CG Agent. Together, these work in conjunction to provide full security management and monitoring. In addition, CyberGatekeeper can be configured to work specifically with other security solutions to provide a more extensive enforcement solution for systems not connected to the corporate network.

After the VPN or dial up connection is established, CG Agent reports information about the remote system to CG Server. CG Server audits this information based on its policies for conformance with the corporate network, then allows access if the audit passes. Criteria for the audits are provided through CG Policy Manager, which creates the audits that are transferred to CG Server.

If an endpoint fails to comply with the policy, CyberGatekeeper returns a message to the user indicating the appropriate step to take, and may include an option to self-remediate through a patch or update. The remote user can then update their system as required before logging in again.
