The Research Data Service team is pleased to announce the availability of a new remote access feature of the University of Edinburgh Data Safe Haven (DSH). In response to the changing working practices due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the DSH technical team in ITI Research Services has completed a significant work package to develop secure remote access arrangements for the environment. A secure third party solution that allows remote access to the DSH server will allow users to remotely access data from end-point devices that sit outside of the University network. The solution provides enhanced security beyond that provided by the VPN connection used for normal remote working. At present our remote access facility is being used by our existing research projects. For new projects this facility will be discussed on a project by project basis. The solution was confirmed at our ISO 27001 certification surveillance visit in November.
