Access Smart Announces Integration of its Power LogOn Enterprise Password Manager with DameWare Mini Remote Control to Offer Complete Secure Remote Connectivity
Power LogOn® enterprise password manager integrates with DameWare Mini Remote Control (DMRC), part of the SolarWinds family of IT Management products. The integrated offering is designed to provide users with a complete secure communications channel from log on to data channel encryption.
In the age of mobile communications, when cyber attacks are at epidemic levels, IT professionals need secure connections between remote and local computers. Security has to start by first authenticating the user before any connection is established with an enterprise password manager.
First, the user authenticates to the Access Smart smart card. This can be done through multiple methods including pin and biometrics. Then, the card automatically launches the DameWare program, which continues the secure connection through multiple built-in security features. DameWare Mini Remote Control gives an administrator the ability to remotely control any machine on the LAN or WAN (across town, across the country, or even around the world).
“Secure user authentication should never be a luxury and never a barrier to preventing cyber-attacks,” said Dovell Bonnett, Founder and CEO of Access Smart. “Once authentication is established, DameWare finishes the secure communication channel.”
SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful, affordable and easy to use IT management software, acquired DameWare in December 2011. The addition of the DameWare products to the SolarWinds portfolio further extends the company’s presence in the systems and application management market with tools that allow systems administrators to remotely manage the computers on their networks.
Many different businesses, law enforcement, healthcare and government agencies rely more on their remote employees. IT cannot be expected to have computers sent back to a centralized location for the latest software or download updates. Combining Power LogOn enterprise password manager and DameWare secures this remote connectivity.
