Article summary

The Splashtop Secure Workspace Connector provides a secure solution for connecting your private applications and resources to the Splashtop Secure Workspace, even if they are located within an internal network protected by a firewall. This enables remote users, such as employees working from home, travelers, partners, vendors, and contractors, to securely access the private applications and resources they need.

Secure Access to Private Applications

For many organizations, their internal private network is safeguarded by a firewall, limiting access to private applications from external users. However, with the Splashtop Secure Workspace Connector installed on a computer within your internal network, you can establish secure connections without the need for publicly routable IP addresses. The connector acts as a lightweight daemon, creating an encrypted tunnel between your private resources and the Splashtop Secure Workspace Global Edge Network. This secure tunnel supports various TCP based protocols such as HTTP, SSH, remote desktop, Telnet, and FTP, ensuring the safe transfer of data and protecting your resources from potential security threats.

Flexible Deployment Options

The Splashtop Secure Workspace Connector offers flexible deployment options to suit your specific needs. You can install the connector on Mac OS, Windows, or Linux computers. It can be run as a service daemon, a system service, a Docker container, or a Linux Kubernetes pod, depending on your preferred configuration. This versatility allows for seamless integration into your existing infrastructure and ensures optimal performance and compatibility.

Discovery of Private Resources

The connector includes a powerful capability to discover private resources or applications running on your internal network. By scanning the private network, the connector identifies and makes these resources can be accessible through the Splashtop Secure Workspace. This simplifies the process of managing and accessing private resources, enhancing productivity and efficiency for both administrators and end-users.

Scalability and Resilience with Connector Clusters

To provide scalability, resilience, and load balancing, the connector can be deployed as a single-instance connector or as part of a connector cluster. Connector clusters offer elasticity and distribute traffic efficiently across multiple instances, ensuring high availability and optimal performance for your private applications.

In conclusion, the Splashtop Secure Workspace Connector offers a secure and flexible solution for connecting your private applications and resources to the Splashtop Secure Workspace. With support for various deployment options, discovery of private resources, and the ability to establish secure tunnels for remote access, the connector enhances productivity and enables remote work without compromising security.
