Power LogOn is available on Amazon

Power LogOn on AmazonI’m excited to announce that Power LogOn Administrator Starter Kit is available on Amazon. After placing Power LogOn on Amazon, I asked a number of our users if they wouldn’t mind adding a comment and a rating. We received great testimonials and more are coming in daily.  While I write about how passwords are secure – but the way they are managed isn’t – it is important to hear from actual users about the problems they were facing and how Power LogOn helped them.

 

IT Professionals love Power LogOn because it’s fast, easy and customizable.

From Mr. Cervantez, IT Installer Professional: I’m an IT pro and have installed it on my clients Windows Server 2008 along with 6 Windows 7 Pro workstations. It’s been about 1 yr and both doctors love it, they go from exam room to exam room insert their smart card into a slot on the Dell keyboard/smart card reader and securely logs them in, and when they’re finished with their patient they remove the card and the computer securely locks. Everything is customizable and the company has excellent support if you ever need it. Highly recommend it.

How to Protect Your Computer Systems, Your Company, and Your Job

“The Secure CEO: How to Protect Your Computer Systems, Your Company, and Your Job” Packs Plain-English Security Solutions for Executives

The Secure CEO: Data security begins with network access authenticationViruses… hackers… malware… identity theft… security breaches… it’s enough to make any CEO’s head spin. In order to remain  competitive and profitable these days, it’s absolutely imperative that you—and  your organization—take control of your IT issues before they take control of  you!

In his new book The Secure CEO, Vital Systems Security Review expert Mike Foster combines  his considerable Internet technology experience with his innate understanding  of the latest business and security technologies. The result is The Secure CEO, the definitive IT  handbook for CEOs and key executives. And best of all, it’s written in easy-to-follow  “plain english” that readers can understand, regardless of their technological  background.

Foster’s premise is that although CEOs may think their networks and company  information are safe from prying eyes, more often than not they are not. In his  book Foster asks critical questions key executives need to consider, such as:

  • Are you sure  your network isn’t running illegal programs that have been remotely installed  by criminals in other countries without your knowledge?
  • Is your IT  team so under-trained or over-whelmed that daily “fires” keep them from  performing critical security tasks?
  • Are unclear  communication and negative personality types adversely affecting your IT  department?

The  Secure CEO gives you the bottom line answers you need to effectively  analyze your current use of Internet technology. Readers will uncover strategies  to minimize IT security breaches, tactics for keeping their companies safer,  and proven “best practices” to implement to help keep systems secure in the  future.

IT security has never been a more  important business concern. Get The Secure CEO and share its timely information with your entire IT team, key  managers, and other top executives. Cut through the confusion and intimidation  and harness the power of technology for your company’s advantage.

Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies / Access Smart Provide Cyber Security with Smart Cards

Affordable, smartcard based, enterprise password manager for Windows solution for network access authentication

No longer will employees have to self-manage their passwords, a practice which can easily lead to an expensive company security breach.

     “When employees self-manage their passwords, the network access authentication becomes very insecure. Passwords are written down, simple passwords are used and the same password is used for multiple sites and applications,” explains Dovell Bonnett, Access Smart founder and CEO. “IT administrators using Power LogOn in combination with aptiQ smart cards can now easily add secure network access authentication. Businesses of all sizes must comply with state and federal privacy protection laws and cyber criminals are aggressively targeting businesses. Power LogOn securely authenticates a user before they are allowed past the firewall.” Read More→
