Remote Access for Staff
Remote access provides the ability to access a computer or a network from a remote location. For example, remote access provides support to individuals who participate in telecommuting/teleworking programs or individuals who need to access the network while on travel. It is an important aspect of many NIEHS staff members requirements.
