Leicestershire Police Officers and Staff Rely on Absolute Secure Access as They Transition to Work-From-Home
The Police Force Empowers Its Officers With Remote Access Technology and Improves Their Ability to Serve the Public
Leicestershire Police is the territorial police force that serves the people of Leicestershire and Rutland in England. Its headquarters is located in Enderby, Leicestershire.
Secure Access to Mission-Critical Applications in the Field
Patrolling the rural areas served by Leicestershire Police posed some unique challenges. Officers were routinely frustrated by failed connections whenever the signal dropped below 3G, making it nearly impossible to do their jobs. They needed a better VPN—one that could securely retain and improve connectivity over all sorts of networks, including 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, ADSL, and 4G, to give mobile users reliable access to mission-critical applications and data. Officers also required access to the 999 emergency systems, reporting, and all the home office software so they could communicate with London and conduct full crime investigations.
