The Domum Remote Access module is a Privileged Remote Access solution that gives remote users access to an organization’s internal resources. It provides a more secure environment for companies whose business operations often take place outside the company’s office by controlling the access of remote employees, third parties, and customers.
Companies that fail to control and monitor these accesses may become vulnerable, resulting in security breaches of company resources. For instance, a server that has been compromised could be used to intercept communications and initiate an attack on users in the organization.
Domum Remote Access provides secure access to remote employees and third parties while fast and easy to use. Our VPN-less solution does not require setting up a new network and VPN access for each user that connects from an external network.
- User origin management
- Specific remote access policies that differ from other PAM users
- Secure authentication via a dedicated link and token validation
- Remote access monitoring
- JIT (Just In Time) accesses for third-party users
Domum fully complies with GDPR and other data protection laws and does not store credentials, sessions, or user data.
Domum provides secure access to Web sessions coming from third-party desktops. The devices connect to senhasegura’s gateway using the HTTPS protocol without needing a VPN. senhasegura, in turn, establishes a secure connection with the company’s resources.
Companies can use the Domum module to create, enforce, and monitor their own Privileged Remote Access rules tailored to their needs.
This diagram shows how different organizations can use a senhasegura Host to connect to their corporate senhasegura instances without creating conflicts between gateways.
Domum Gateway regions
Domum uses infrastructure from the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). To ensure the best possible performance, each instance of your senhasegura Domum Gateway connects to its nearest region.
Currently available regions:
- Frankfurt, Germany
- Sydney, Australia
- São Paulo, Brazil
- Third-party users: A company’s network is one of its most crucial assets and should not be accessible to remote users without caution. In many companies, employees only use senhasegura’s secure connections daily. Most users do not require access to the broader network, but without a proper tool, even methods such as a VPN fall short of restricting users’ access to only the required applications.
- VPN-Less and Principle of Least Privilege: Users don’t need to sign up for senhasegura. Domum sends each user a unique access link to the platform. Employees and third-party users can then request passwords and access their credentials remotely while working from home, from their own companies, or from a customer's workplace. Their access is isolated from the main network running senhasegura and uses a remote access profile with the least possible privileges.
- External Access Policy: the organization must configure which assets the user must access and how this access can be carried out, respecting the days and times determined in the policy.
- Geoblocking: In their Access Policies, companies can limit access requests based on the user’s location. For example, access can be restricted to regions where remote users are known to work or where they are currently providing services to one of the company’s customers. Therefore, if Domum receives an access request from a location not previously authorized in the Access Policy, this access will be denied, even if the user has the correct permissions.
- Employees: Employees often need to access senhasegura in remote settings, such as when working from home or traveling on business. Many do not require applications other than senhasegura to perform routine tasks. They could be instructed to access the system via Domum to save VPN resources and protect other applications from unwanted access. The organization provides the employee with full but secure access to senhasegura via a dedicated link that only authenticates access from that particular user.
- Remote Access Policy: Employees who need to access the platform from an external network will be subject to the same policies as their regular access group in the PAM module. This ensures that a single set of policies apply to that user in both standard and access. In other words, when a user accesses senhasegura via Domum, the permissions and rules that generally apply to this user remain unaltered.

Domum´s general workflow
The Domum workflow is quite simple and boils down to the administrator user defining and creating privileged remote access policies according to your company's needs. Domum will generate these accesses, which the Administrator can monitor and control. See below an example of the workflow and its respective steps:
- The Administrator user defines and configures external accesses.
- Domum generates a personal link and a token via SMS or e-mail.
- The user accesses the link.
- The Domum Gateway communicates with the corporate environment.
- The user inserts the token received via SMS or e-mail to log in.
- The user has authenticated access to the senhasegura where he can perform his operations.
