Access Smart® Improves Cybersecurity with Power LogOn – Multifactor Password Manager for Business.
Ladera Ranch, CA – Nov 10, 2015 – Access 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.
Power LogOn meets a broad set of international and industry-specific compliance standards, such as FIPS 140-2, HIPAA, CJIS and many others. Therefore, our customers now extend their data security from the employee’s finger tips all the way to data storage. Access Smart’s Power LogOn serves government agencies, healthcare, large corporations, universities, and small to medium sized businesses. Whether you have a stand-alone computer, small office network, or a multimillion dollar enterprise, Power LogOn works.
“Passwords are secure. What is insecure is how employees manage them,” said Dovell Bonnett, Founder and CEO of Access Smart. “When employees no longer have to remember, type, generate or know any passwords, IT has the ability to implement very long, security-enhanced passwords that can be changed as frequently as necessary. Passwords are not going away anytime soon. Companies can now help secure them using the latest technologies.”
Windows 10 is the best Windows ever and empowers people to do great things. Microsoft’s latest OS has new innovations like Cortana, Microsoft Edge and the Xbox app. It’s more personal and more productive. It’s safer and more secure. And, it’s familiar and automatically up to date.
Internet Explorer 11 is the browser built for touch, but with features like Security Zones, Authenticode Publishers and SmartScreen Filter, it is now built for security and privacy. For example, SmartScreen Filter helps identify reported phishing and malware websites. NSS Labs showed that IE11 detected and blocked 99% of socially engineered malware.
Power LogOn adds on an additional layer of bowser security. Because Power LogOn stores a site’s URL, it first checks it against the URL in the IE11 address bar. If they don’t match then no passwords are auto-filled. The employee keeps their company’s passwords secure. With the combination of Power LogOn and IE11, companies have a greater level of protection from Spamming, Phishing and Pharming attacks when surfing the web.
Power LogOn, Windows 10, and Internet Explore11 makes your computer experience secure, convenient and productive.
