Power LogOn® now supports Windows 10

Access Smart® Improves Cybersecurity with Power LogOn – Multifactor Password Manager for Business.

Office-with-Power-LogOn---smallLadera Ranch, CA – Nov 10, 2015Access Smart, LLC today announced that the Power LogOn software now supports all versions of Windows 10 and Internet Explorer 11.  Power LogOn – multifactor password manager for business, adds an extra layer of cybersecurity during the initial logon process to Windows 10/IE11 with an efficient authentication solution. Now IT can keep passwords secure, and employees don’t have to manage passwords.

A cyber-attack can cost a company about $248 per record stolen. That’s why cybersecurity must start before the firewall. Power LogOn complements computer logon by adding on a security-enhanced password manager. The greatest cyber threat to any company is employee managed user names and passwords. To access the power of Windows 10/IE11, employees don’t need to type in their user name and password. By removing this cybersecurity vulnerability, Power LogOn puts the control of sensitive data back in the hands of IT professionals where it belongs. Read More→

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.
