The new “Virtual Private Workforce” (VPW) cloud service was developed in response to organisational workforce shifts to remote or work-from-anywhere models accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic and current geopolitical events.
New Solution Provides a Secure, Flexible Way to Conduct and Manage Remote R&D Teams and Programs in Response to the Uncertainties of Global Health and Geopolitical Events
Tel Aviv, NFAPost: Safe-T Group Ltd, a global provider of cybersecurity and privacy solutions to consumers and enterprises, announced that it has partnered with TerraZone and DreamVPS to offer a first-of-its-kind Virtual Private Workforce (“VPW”) cloud service.
The new VPW cloud service was developed in response to organisational workforce shifts to remote or work-from-anywhere models accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic and current geopolitical events.
In particular, the demand for software developers has outpaced the local availability of resources, which has required organizations, especially small and medium-sized businesses (“SMBs”), to increasingly outsource their software development programs.
Due to the growing number of cyberattacks and security risks, it is imperative for these businesses to adopt a solution that helps empower and protect their distributed workforces.
The VPW cloud service provides SMBs with a fully hosted and virtualised infrastructure uniquely designed to support the needs of software development teams. The new service fits organizations with either insourced or outsourced software development programs while ensuring that intellectual property and data are secured against theft and leakage.
Safe-T Chief Executive Officer Shachar Daniel said the company is excited about its new partnership and engagement with DreamVPS to provide a compelling new security solution to their large global customer base, adding to our continued revenue growth in 2022.
“VPW incorporates some of the best-of-breed security technologies, including our ZoneZero® network access solution, with the data protection technology by Safe-T and TerraZone, all delivered via DreamVPS’ cloud platform,” said Safe-T Chief Executive Officer Shachar Daniel.
Together, Safe-T Chief Executive Officer Shachar Daniel said they are enabling organisations to significantly enhance the security of their valuable R&D and intellectual property with an effective, easy-to-implement service.
Benefits of Virtual Private Workforce
VPW provides many security benefits aimed to enable employees and outsourced employees to work remotely. The basic principles are centered around reducing risk, cutting costs, and improving the user experience.
This is achieved with:
Ability to deploy services and servers immediately when infrastructure is required
Increased user productivity with increased uptime
Reduced data center costs and computing support costs by as much as 90%
Improved employee and customer experiences with protected virtual workspaces
Reduced breach risk
Subscription-based User Consumption which charges only for members who actively use the service
DreamVPS Chief Technology Officer Ran Cohen said the past two years have demonstrated that working remotely can be highly effective and productive when supported by the right access and security technologies.
“As the recent geopolitical developments in Ukraine have made clear, however, organizations that have embraced a remote work model, especially those with distributed R&D teams, also need to consider business continuity and disaster recovery planning when remote offices and IT infrastructures are subject to disruption,” said DreamVPS Chief Technology Officer Ran Cohen
DreamVPS Chief Technology Officer Ran Cohen also said that is why the company came forward with a solution that provides an easier way of implementing remote work at affordable costs with high flexibility and security while making data and intellectual property, a focal point.
Through this new technology collaboration with Safe-T and TerraZone, DreamVPS Chief Technology Officer Ran Cohen said they were able to implement a unique, comprehensive virtual private workforce cloud service, designed for today’s remote workforce.

Secure remote access to organizations’ environments and applications within the cloud service, provided by Safe-T’s ZoneZero® Zero Trust Network Access (“ZTNA”) solution
As opposed to other virtualised desktop and infrastructure solutions, which are costly and require installing special software on end-user devices, as well as extensive IT knowledge, the VPW service is simple to use, and does not require any client software installed on the end user’s device.
TerraZone Vice President Business Development Yana Lev said organisations who sign up to the service, get a dedicated fully segmented VPW in which they can host and run their office and network.
“The service also offers a marketplace of software developer-oriented applications and tools which the IT team can deploy at a click of a button within their own virtual private workforce,” said TerraZone Vice President Business Development Yana Lev.
Users accessing the VPW utilizing the VPW’s built-in ZTNA-based secure remote access can add per-application secondary multi-factor authentication (“MFA”). Secure access and MFA can be added to any type of application (legacy, proprietary services, RDP, file shares, SSH, SFTP, web applications, databases, and more) without the need to install any special client software on the end user’s device.
Once connected to the VPW, users get access only to the applications and servers allowed to them by their identity, ensuring users cannot connect to resources out of their domain, ensuring data cannot be improperly accessed or stolen.
