Conditional Access Template

This template creates a configuration that checks if the session is accessed outside of working hours. It can be found in the TIME-BASED ACCESS category when filtered for REMOTE platform.

If the session is accessed outside of working hours, you can choose between two actions:

  • Denies access to the session when accessed outside working time.
  • Displays a message in the session when accessed outside working time.

deviceTRUST requires some simple but essential configuration steps to be performed to enable the template for your remoting and DaaS environments. We will guide you step-by-step through simple deviceTRUST configuration steps to enable the template within your remoting or DaaS environment.

We will perform the following steps:

  1. Step 1: Prerequisites
  2. Step 2: Contexts
  3. Step 3: Actions

Step 1: Prerequisites

If the required deviceTRUST components (Agent, Console, Client Extension and License) are not yet installed, please visit the Getting Started for Remoting and DaaS guide and complete step 1 to 5 and then continue here with step 2 below.

Step 2: Contexts

The template has imported the following contexts:

Context Description Customizations
Working Time
 
 
 
Defines if the current time is within the working time.
 
 
 
You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

LOCAL - SESSION TIME Time Of Day EVERYDAY BETWEEN 08:00 AND 18:00
Adjust your work hours to fit your requirements.
Note:
  • If a context is not needed, it can be deactivated or deleted. In addition, the corresponding task sequence within the relevant action must be deleted too.

Step 3: Actions

The template includes a notifying action that displays a message to the user about a context status and an enforcement action that actively controls access to the session. By default, only the notifying action is enabled and the enforcement action is disabled.

Action Description Default State Customizations
Working Time - Conditional Access - Enforcement Denies access to the session if the remote BYOD is not compliant. Deactivated None
Working Time - Conditional Access - Notification Displays a message in the session when accessed outside working time. Activated None
Note:
  • If both actions have been disabled, the contexts will still be created.
  • If both actions have been activated, the deny access task will take priority over the displaying of the notification message.
