Power LogOn – Two Cybersecurity Modes

cybersecurity Mutifactor AuthenticationMultifactor Authentication Cybersecurity

Power LogOn offers IT the flexibility to determine how best to implement multifactor authentication cybersecurity. It has always been Access Smart’s belief that Power LogOn should allow custom configurations to meet a company’s security policy, and not force a company to change their security policy because of a product’s limitations.

Power LogOn can operate in either On-Card Mode or Server Mode. This flexibility allows Power LogOn to be installed in a small office to a large multi-international corporation. It’s the same product. So as a company grows they can use the same Power LogOn software to migrate from one mode to another.

I just finished our latest video on Power LogOn Administrator On-Card Mode. In this video you will understand where On-Card Mode is best placed. Please watch the video and contact us if you would like to know how Power LogOn best works in your business.

HITECT MultiFactor Authentication for McKesson HIS

Multifactor Authentication required by HIPPA & HITECH

Multifactor authenticationAccess Smart® adds multifactor authentication to McKesson’s Paragon Hospital Information System (HIS) software. Access Smart’s Power LogOn® application requires no modifications to the Paragon software so integration is fast and easy. With Power LogOn, hospitals, clinics and other health-care providers can now address their HIPAA and HITECH compliance concerns while protecting patient’s private records. “You can’t have the health-care reform act without electronic health records,” says Judy Hanover, a health-care technology industry analyst at IDC. True, but you can’t have privacy without first authenticating who is accessing your electronic health records.

Access Smart analyzed the Paragon HIS software and quickly updated Power LogOn to now auto-launch Paragon, auto fill-in the user name and password fields, and auto shutdown Paragon when the smart card is removed. Furthermore, Power LogOn ties into Active Directory so virtually any computer, network, internet site, cloud and application that requires a user name and password can easily be secured by the same smartcard. Power LogOn can also be added to RFID access control cards for a single card solution. Read More→

Password Manager Security Can Stop Data Breaches

Password manager security technologies are available today, use them.

We all have been told by IT that we must have complex passwords, they must have a minimum of eight characters, don’t use the same password for other sites, and then change your password again in 60-days. While this does set up a strong password security from IT’s perspective, it also forces employees to circumvent the security for their own convenience.

Now the government is mandating companies protect patient and customers personal data stored in computers. Companies need to deploy a password manager security technology to meet these demands.
