Access Smart® Improves Cybersecurity With Power LogOn.
LADERA RANCH, CA. June 15, 2015 – Access Smart, LLC today announced that the Power LogOn software now supports Microsoft Azure. Power LogOn adds an extra layer of cybersecurity during the initial logon process to Azure. Azure provides Power LogOn customers with an efficient cloud solution, keeping data available with improved security.
Because cybersecurity needs to start before the firewall, Access Smart complements Azure by adding on a security-enhanced password manager. To access the power of Azure, employees don’t need to type in their user name and password. The greatest security threat to any company is the employee managed user names and passwords. By removing this cybersecurity vulnerability, Power LogOn puts the control of sensitive data back in the hands of IT professionals. Read More→
Solo doctor solves HIPAA multi-factor authentication need at a low cost.

I am a practicing ophthalmologist in Delaware, and like many solo docs, I am also the in-house IT manager. The government has encouraged all of us to adopt EMR. About two years ago, I went “all-in” with electronic medical records (EMR) software. One of the scariest things about this process is the penalties levied by the government for a failed security audit or data breach. I have read stories of medical practices losing a hard drive or laptop and then being fined over $100,000. In addition, many major hospitals with full-time IT security teams have also been fined millions dollars for a breach. The U.S. government does not treat protecting patient’s records lightly.

I’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.
