Amazon WorkLink is a fully managed service that lets you provide your employees with secure, easy access to your internal corporate websites and web apps using their mobile phones. Traditional solutions such as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and device management software are inconvenient to use on the go, and often require the use of custom browsers that have a poor user experience. As a result, employees often forgo using them altogether.
With Amazon WorkLink, employees can access internal web content as easily as they access any public website, without the hassle of connecting to their corporate network. When a user accesses an internal website, the page is first rendered in a browser running in a secure container in AWS. Amazon WorkLink then sends the contents of that page to employee phones as vector graphics while preserving the functionality and interactivity of the page. This approach is more secure than traditional solutions because internal content is never stored or cached by the browser on employee phones, and employee devices never connect directly to your corporate network.
With Amazon WorkLink, there are no minimum fees or long-term commitments. You pay only for users that connect to the service each month, and there is no additional charge for bandwidth consumption.
