How to work from home or away from the office

Please note:

From 31 March 2022 you must use Microsoft Authenticator to log on the Equinor network remotely. The SMS authentication method will no longer be valid. Please see the linked guide on how to enable Authenticator.

Safety first

Information security is very important when working from a remote location. Public Wi-Fi networks must not be used unless you have activated a VPN connection.

Use Office 365 for your regular work

You can access Outlook mail and Teams without any login from your Equinor laptop. If you want to access any Office 365 application, the simplest solution is to go directly to the Microsoft Office 365 portal.

You can access this portal from any device with a web browser (PC, Mac, etc).

You need Microsoft Authenticator installed on your phone to complete the login. This app is recommended for all employees and consultants.

Minimise the use of VPN

The recommendation is to minimise the use of VPN to reserve capacity for users who depend on VPN to do their work. You do however need to use VPN if you are connected to a public Wi-Fi network.

To access VPN from an Equinor laptop, open the application Cisco AnyConnect, select your nearest location and use Microsoft Authenticator to log in.

Use Terminal server for Equinor applications

You can access the Terminal Server from any web browser if you need to access an Equinor application (SAP, Insight, ARIS, F- & G-drive, etc.).

You need Microsoft Authenticator to complete the login. Please be aware that you cannot save or print to any local devices with this solution. When finished, please log off correctly so that your licence becomes available for other users.

If you need to delegate your responsibilities in SAP

You may delegate tasks in SAP for a limited period by establishing a task manager substitute.
